Our ethos and values

At North Birmingham Academy we are committed to the highest standards in everything we do.   All our students should leave the academy as articulate, aspirational individuals equipped for the modern world and able to make a positive contribution to their community.

We are committed to supporting British values of democracy, the rule of law, individual liberty, respect and tolerance.

We are proud of our diverse community of students, staff and we are committed to creating an environment where individuals flourish and are treated with dignity and respect.

  • Fairness and inclusion are fundamental to everything we do.
  • Diversity is valued and celebrated.
  • Good relationships between diverse groups are promoted.
  • Respect is at the heart of academy life.
  • All young people benefit from exceptional education opportunities.
