The local area
The local area’s history stretches back to the Iron Age when there was a hill fort at Berry Mound, which is part of West Shirley and dates back to the first century BC. Shirley grew slowly from its origins as a small village, with a church built in 1831 before rapid development at the end of the century and in the early 20th century. The modern Shirley has plenty of amenities to cater for its residents, not least along Stratford Road with its selection of shops, restaurants and supermarkets.
Less than ten miles outside of Birmingham, the area is popular among people looking to work in the city. There are trains from Shirley station which take just 15 minutes to reach Birmingham Moor Street, or if Solihull station is more convenient there are services which take less than ten minutes. The district is in a great location for a range of motorways, including the M42, M40 and M6, and relatively easy access to other towns like Kenilworth, Dudley, Halesowen and Sutton Coldfield, while Birmingham Airport is only around seven miles away for when you want to go on holiday.
There’s a selection of primary schools in the area for families with children to choose between, including Shirley Heath, Our Lady of the Wayside Catholic Primary and Oak Cottage Primary. At secondary level, Light Hall School is the only option in Shirley itself, although other schools in the local area include Tudor Grange Academy, Alderbrook School and Langley School.
