I have also heard of issues with a Muslim family who had to withdraw their son from Solihull School, although I don't know them personally, I know they were very unhappy with the school.
I have attended open days there and never felt any 'unwelcoming' vibes myself, and I am rather sensitive. Staff seemed open and friendly enough. I even remember asking about prayer facilities, and they were very accommodating. I've also seen the Solihull School pupils out and about in Malvern Park nearby and found them to be courteous and well behaved (in contrast to the Solihull 6th formers who frequent Tudor Grange Park and hog all the play equipment from the toddlers
Funnily enough, I am going there tomorrow morning as dd has a workshop to attend, via her Primary School. I am only worried about which of about 6 entrances I'm supposed to take to get in
However, I know of Muslim children and families at other Solihull schools, such as Tudor Grange, who have had terrible problems, and my own ds1 had great difficulty during an unfortunate two terms at a very 'established' Solihull Primary before moving to a far more welcoming one.
I suppose I'm going to wade into the minefield now and suggest that Solihull area (not just Solihull school) has issues with diversity and Muslims.
It is no secret that, despite a pretty significant Muslim population, they were blocked for years from having any sort of mosque and only now have one, at which they are not yet allowed to hold Friday prayers.
A halal meat business I knew eventually closed because of repeated vandalism and attacks.
The proportion of BNP members (when the membership list was published a few years back, I was sad enough to scrutinise it carefully) in the B91, B90 and B92 postcodes was overwhelmingly higher than any areas of Birmingham, with B91 having the highest % of members.
The only times in my life that I have ever been racially abused (which is daft as I am white, but there you go, I wear a headscarf) have been in Solihull; in the city centre, and a number of times in Shirley. I have also encountered graffiti in Shirley Park saying 'Muslims Out' and other (non-printable) words. When I called the council to inform them of the graffiti, they certainly didn't take it seriously.
And posters may be aware of the recent decision by Tudor Grange Academy to restrict its intake of non-Christian pupils by forming partnerships with two CE Christian Junior Schools in the borough (who have strict admissions policies favouring Christians), in order to prioritise their pupils for entry even above children living in Tudor Grange catchment (who are increasingly Asian, as families have 'bought into' the area to ensure good school places).
All of this appears to be adding up to a bit of a pattern to me....no doubt most Sihillians are great people who value and indeed celebrate the diversity of their community, but a core of families remain who do not. If it is their children who are causing difficulty for Muslims, and Asians in general, in schools in Solihull, then this is something the schools should have the will to tackle, but I doubt it will be easy.
