Handsworth Wood Girls' is a specialist visual and performing arts college that was designated in 2010. It is about the same size as most secondary schools. It holds Investors in People Award since 1998, Artsmark Gold and, recently, was awarded Customer Service Excellence. Almost all students come from non-White British heritage backgrounds. The majority are from Asian heritage backgrounds, mostly Pakistani. A much higher-than-average proportion of students speak English as an additional language. Many students new to Britain who speak very little English come to the school from a wide range of countries. The proportion of students known to be eligible for free school meals is higher than average. The proportion of students with special educational needs and/or disabilities is above average, although the proportion of those with a statement of special educational needs is lower than average. A new headteacher and deputy headteacher took up their posts in September 2010.
