Saltley Grammar School opened in the 1920s, and was closed down when World War 2 broke out. Years afterwards, it was opened again as Saltley School.
In 2014 Saltley School was placed in special measures by Ofsted after a critical inspection report. The inspection had been undertaken after Saltley School had been connected to the Operation Trojan Horse scandal which affected a number of schools in Birmingham in 2014.
Saltley School converted to academy status in March 2015 and was renamed Saltley Academy. The school is now part of the Washwood Heath Multi-Academy Trust which includes Brownmead Primary Academy and Washwood Heath Academy.
Saltley Wellbeing Centre
Saltley Wellbeing Centre (formerly Saltley Community Leisure Centre) adjoins the Saltley School complex. The Centre offers sports and leisure facilities for the local community as well as for use by the school.
