It was built as Stratford Road School in 1885 by architects Martin & Chamberlain as a Birmingham board school, one of around forty schools built by that firm in an innovative style as a result of the Elementary Education Act 1870.
The school was extensively damaged by the Birmingham tornado on 28 July 2005 and lost its distinctive Martin & Chamberlain tower. The school proposed building a replica of the tower. On 26 October 2006, Birmingham City Council Planning Department decided that the planning application should be referred to the Department for Communities and Local Government.
