School Results

It’s no secret that we are extremely proud of our pupils, both in school and beyond, and the results that they achieve whilst at Great Barr Academy. As a school we have a proven track record of academic excellence, and our team of outstanding and experienced teachers are committed to delivering a consistently great curriculum in a truly supportive, secure and caring environment, allowing students to continue aiming high and achieving.

We actively ensure the experiences, knowledge and skills that each and every one of our pupils needs to challenge themselves and realise their individual potential from Year 7 to Sixth Form and throughout their lives.

Our current school results

Our pupils’ latest achievements and our current Great Barr Academy results reflect our ethos for excellence perfectly. Whilst we adopt a philosophy for personal progression and achievement through class and home learning tasks, we team this with a challenging academic, sporting and performing arts curriculum to maximise opportunities and enhance the educational experience further.

In Science, we have a record number of A* to C results, with 100% of students achieving these grades for the individual subjects of Physics, Chemistry and Biology. For Core Science, which incorporates all three subjects, 80% of students achieved an A*to C grade. In Drama, 90% of students gained an A* to C grade. English Literature saw 86% achieve A* to C, and English Language saw 63% of students achieve the higher grades.

Working hard to raise standards further

Despite providing a high level of secondary and further education throughout the local area, we are continuing to work hard to raise standards and improve Great Barr Academy results further. For example, our Mathematics Department has recently appointed a new Head of Department so that pupils across all year groups can capitalise on an increased wealth of knowledge and experience, and as a school we can implement immediate action to improve results in the subject.

Progress is of particular importance to us, and with almost 70% of students achieving their expected levels of progress in English, it is a mission that is already well underway and producing results that we are incredibly pleased with.
