Bournville College Academy is based at the Bournville Campus in the new Longbridge town centre. The Academy accepts young people from the age of 14. Students can progress onto our college and university courses at Bournville College or other campuses.
The Academy was inspected by Ofsted in November 2018 and judged to be 'good'. It was particularly praised for a broad and balanced curriculum, strong and productive relationships between staff and pupils and for the progress pupils make in a safe environment. 'Pupils feel safe. They trust their teachers and other adults and they value the support they receive. Relationships between staff and pupils are warm and respectful. Pupils recognise and appreciate the care that staff provide.' (Ofsted)
The curriculum consists of three pathways for young people to follow thus improving their career opportunities for the future. The pathways are: Engineering and Technical Crafts, Creative and Health Sciences. These pathways offer young people the opportunity to gain skills and qualifications in their chosen field and participate in enrichment activities to complement their studies. Access to outstanding vocational facilities makes this an ideal place for your son or daughter to study.
The teaching week runs from Monday to Thursday 8.45-4.00 and Fridays 8.45 – 12.30. Relevant industrial placements are available to enhance studies and give learners a deeper insight into fields of work.
