As you may have noticed, our staffand pupils are important to us; in fact, our Great Barr Academy people are the secret behind our enviable reputation and excellent results, but for prospective parents and their sons and daughters, what difference can good staff make to the students and their learning?

Our role in your child’s education

Each and every staff member, whether they are a teacher, senior leader or governing body member, understands just how much of an impact their role has on your child’s future, and as a result we take our jobs very seriously. With a motto of ‘Nurturing Potential and Creating Opportunity’, all our Great Barr Academy people work hard to fulfil this ambition so your child can unlock their potential both now and in the future. We aim to start with the end in mind, and as soon as your child arrives in September, our teaching and support staff aim to prepare them for learning across all curriculum areas.

Aiming high both personally and academically

Here at Great Barr Academy, we are passionate about our pupils achieving excellent results across all areas of their curriculum but we also measure success with personal achievements. Our teachers, senior leaders and Governing Body encourage pupils at all levels and of all abilities to aim high in all they do – academically, in extra curricular activities, in the contribution to their communities etc.

We use class and home learning tasks to ensure students can develop independently and gain skills that will last them a lifetime.

Working together to deliver excellence

Our Great Barr Academy people work together to provide an excellent educational experience for each and every pupil, and whether you are a prospective parent looking for a place for your child or a parent whose child is currently studying with us, our team is on hand to provide you with the information you need.
