I am delighted to be the Headteacher of City Academy Birmingham. We are a mainstream, non-selective school built upon the values of collaboration, opportunity, respect and excellence. We work with a tremendous community of parents and students, right in the heart of our proud and vibrant city.
Our focus is always on individual student progress and personal development. We strive to create confident, intelligent and skillful young people who will flourish beyond school, whether at university or in the contemporary workplace.
At City Academy Birmingham, an aspirational culture pervades. It stems from our relentless drive to deliver exceptional student outcomes. We believe that providing an excellent education is key to a fairer society and better lives for our students. For this reason, we insist upon the highest of standards in behaviour, uniform, attendance and effort.
Student voice opportunities and leadership roles are important ways in which our young people can shape and strengthen the academy and its local community. We ask our students to be mature, responsible and selfless wherever possible.
We are very keen for our students to have enriching opportunities and experiences beyond the classroom. Extra-curricular activities thrive, with sport and the arts featuring heavily in our calendar of events. Similarly, careers and enterprise education are given a high profile. All of our students experience a trip to university and receive advice and guidance about higher education and the world of work.
Our students deserve the best, so we appoint only the most talented and passionate teachers and support staff. We understand that it is a privilege to work with the incredible children of Birmingham and we know that great teachers inspire the next generation, transform lives and brighten futures.
Strong values underpin everything that we do here at City Academy Birmingham. All of our staff, students and parents appreciate the importance of respect and equality of opportunity. Through working collaboratively and by always striving for excellence, we know that we are nurturing and empowering our young people.
