Harborne Academy students have access to brilliant teaching and a wealth of fantastic extracurricular experiences from the moment they start in Year 7 to when they leave us in Year 11, ready to start the next chapter of their education.

We place literacy and a love of reading at the heart of our curriculum and have a fantastic library and cosy reading room to support our students to read in a comfortable environment. We make sure that students are nurtured to reach their full academic potential with support for those who need it and we offer an ambitious and challenging curriculum to stretch our students and ensure high aspirations. We are lucky to have the University of Birmingham on our doorstep and we take full advantage of the opportunities they can offer our students through mentoring and lectures to stretch our most able students.

The academy values the arts and invests within these faculties through their facilities, equipment and staffing. One of our investments is in the Hippodrome Education Network (HEN) which allows us to provide our students exposure to professional workshops, as well as live action shows at the theatre, and a cultural capital that can rival any other. As a result, the Performing Arts faculty is going from strength to strength and students’ talents are showcased in a variety of performances throughout the year, including a musical extravaganza in the summer term. The Creative Arts faculty is not left behind with our new kiln allowing us to offer our very popular pottery lessons. Students can also now enjoy 3D Design in the curriculum and have access to a laser cutter and 3D printer within the Design Technology department.

Alongside all of this, there are state-of-the-art facilities available including a gym, sports hall, 3G pitch, which are regularly used by all students for lessons and enrichment sessions.
