It has been a fantastic time recently for the school as we have become a newly formed educational trust with three other excellent educational partners. The lead partner is the University College Birmingham, with Walsall College and Bartley Green School in Birmingham making a very exciting and unique partnership. The partnership will benefit our pupils, staff and parents at all levels of their education, from age 11 to university entrance and adult education. The opportunities are endless. The emphasis at Brownhills School remains firmly on helping the individual to achieve the very best results in all aspects of school life, with particular support and guidance in gaining qualifications, skills and experience necessary to follow their chosen career path.

Q3 Academy Great Barr

Birmingham / West Midlands

Our educational philosophy is simple.


First and foremost we want every child to feel happy and excited about coming to the Academy. Only when each child feels secure and comfortable can we challenge them to grow and learn together.


We want our students to return home telling their families of the memorable exciting learning experiences they have enjoyed. Experiences that make it easier to recall the detail necessary for exam success and experiences that develop their character as much as their academic potential.


Our passion is helping young people to flourish and become confident capable adults ready for the world ahead.


This passion creates a genuine warmth that supports every member of our community. Our traditional family values and Academy ethos, ‘To seek for that which is good, right and true’ helps to keep the academic and well-being of every child sharply in focus and drives our ambition for continual improvement.


Only if our staff can say that what we provide is good enough for their own children is it good enough for yours and I’m proud to say this commitment to care, coupled with high academic ambition is helping all our young people to succeed.
