Great Barr Academy has a mini school structure, which divides the school into four distinct areas.

The mini schools are named after famous scientists comprising Darwin, Franklin, Brunel and Johnson.

Each of the mini schools has a dedicated Pastoral Manager whose primary role is to support the Attendance, Welfare and Behaviour of pupils within the respective mini school.

Pupils are encouraged to take part in the mini school championships and to represent their respective mini school over the year. A range of events take place throughout the year including both academic and sporting events. The championship culminates in Sports Day, held in July at Alexander Sports Stadium.

We share clear expectations with our pupils at Great Barr Academy in relation to their behaviour.

Ready, Respectful, Safe.
