Welcome to the Federation of Cherry Oak and Victoria Specialist Arts College.

We are two special schools located in the South of Birmingham. We formed a ‘hard federation’ with one governing body and one Executive Headteacher in September 2010.

Our aim is ‘working together for success’.

We celebrate our similarities and differences, share staff, resources, events and ideas and bring enriched opportunities to both schools throughout the year. Our achievements together are published in a newsletter each term as well as notice boards in each school.

The Federation brings many benefits to both schools and we know that we will go from strength to strength.

Partners Across Both Schools

Pupils from different classes across the Federation work together to share in play and learning.
