At Great Barr Academy the vast majority of Year 7, 8 and 9 students study a 3 year broad and balanced curriculum model.

In Year 8 currently the talented linguists follow a slightly modified curriculum with additional time for Modern Foreign Languages (MFL) to allow them to study a second language.  These students are identified by MFL and English staff.
