Development[edit]

The previous Latin motto "virtus ex humilitate"[3] ('virtue through humility') and uniforms consisting of blazer and school-colour ties were replaced by the incoming Headmaster Neil Hemmings in 2003.

The school was renamed in 2007 from 'Woodhouse High School' to 'Woodhouse Business and Enterprise College' where the school specialized in Business Studies classes. The school is therefore a member of the Specialist Schools and Academies Trust. As part of this change the school houses were renamed. Original houses were:

Houses were renamed to more contemporary names connected with business and enterprise:

The school was one of the first in Staffordshire to gain the prestigious Staffordshire Partnership Award for outstanding school industry links.[2]

After being placed in special measures by OFSTED in 2007, the school has been improving in GCSE results in the past three years,[4] and currently around 80% of pupils achieve the government's target of 5 A*-C grades at GCSE.[5] The changeover to Landau Forte provided the school with even better results. In August 2011 the Tamworth Herald reported that:

"THE former Woodhouse High School is celebrating its first set of GCSE results as the Landau Forte Academy with an 'outstanding improvement' on 2010.

A total 48 per cent of students achieved 5A*-C results including maths and English compared with last year's score of 31 per cent. And 87 per cent achieved five GCSEs at grade A*-C."Tamworth Herald

Change to Landau Forte Academy Amington[edit]

As a part of Building Schools for the Future programme, Landau Forte took over the management of the school and Woodhouse became an Academy in September 2010. Pupils and staff moved into a custom-built facility in September 2011, opened officially on September 21 by the Duchess of Gloucester.[6] Simultaneously, the Sixth Forms of the other Tamworth schools - QEMS, Rawlett School, Belgrave High School and Wilnecote High School closed in 2011 and re-opened at the new Landau Forte Sixth Form next to Queen Elizabeth's Mercian School and South Staffordshire College in the town centre.[7] With the introduction of the new academy, the houses were renamed after initial investors Martin Landau and Rocco Forte
