How we support our students
At North Birmingham Academy we pride ourselves on having high expectations of our students and challenge students to achieve their academic excellence.
High standards are upheld by the Post 16 team, each member of the team have a specific, dedicated and supportive role in ensuring that students receive holistic care whilst at our sixth form.
We offer excellent pastoral care to our Post16 students. During tutor time students are given the opportunity to debate current affairs, present to their peers about various historical and political topics they have researched, research career options and universities, take part in the wider school drive to improve literacy and numeracy by working as a student mentor. Students are given extensive information about how to apply to various opportunities available to them.
Students in Post 16 also have access to our specialist support department at any time throughout the school day where someone is on hand to discuss any school related or personal concerns that our students might be facing.
Students regularly are encouraged to explore techniques to de-stress and look after their own mental health. The Academy make use of outside agencies to supplement our own specialist teams in providing support when needed.
Support is also available for students who might need extra guidance about their future career pathway through our careers advisor.
