Welcome to Ark St Alban's Academy
The choice of which sixth form a student goes to is very important and is not a decision to be taken lightly. St Alban's Academy Sixth Form opened in September 2013 and offers students a structured approach to learning in a lively and supportive environment with high quality teaching. Our sixth form is built on a strong foundation of teaching excellence and is situated in our brand new state of the art building with its excellent facilities. We have very strong links with parents and we are committed to working closely with them to ensure that their children fulfil their potential.
The St Alban's Academy Sixth Form will grow to a maximum of 200 students so staff will know all students well. This will create a more personal environment where we can provide a high level of support for each student. We expect exemplary behaviour, a positive attitude to work and strict adherence to the dress code. In return we offer high quality teaching, excellent pastoral care and a wide range of enrichment opportunities.
"We are here to challenge every individual to make the most of their God given talents."
We are proud of the academy's inclusive Church of England ethos and its multi-faith intake. We have strong partnerships with other faith communities, especially with the Birmingham Central Mosquewhich is represented on our Governing Body and strongly echoes the faith ethos of the academy.
As a Church of England Academy, our Christian principles inform our actions and beliefs, giving us confidence in defining and communicating what we mean by "right" and "good" and "better". We believe that talentes are "God given" for a higher purpose. Making the most of our talents means using them and developing them to the full, to help others as well as ourselves, in the interest of creating a better world.
St Alban's Academy Sixth Form is founded on these values. We provide a safe, structured, learning environment that enables students to achieve their full academic potential and secure the qualifications they need to access a good university or the career of their choice.
The academy maintains a dsiciplined and challenging ethos built on high quality teaching and outstanding student progress. Students are expected to work hard and take responsibility for their learning in a sixth form community shielded from potential distractions providing ideal conditions for high academic achievement and personal development.
We do not allow students to underachieve. Our rigorous assessment procedures ensure regular feedback and speedy intervention including individual support for the student and the early involvement of parents.
