EBN Academy was established to give the students in the East of Birmingham the very best in Alternative Provision. It is my privilege to lead a team of highly trained and dedicated staff whose aim is to ensure that all of our students experience an educational journey that is positive and enriching. Many of our students have found it difficult in mainstream schools but develop a new attitude towards education at our academy.

We operate our school on 8 basic principles: respect, honesty, resilience, integrity, compliance, hard-working, ambition and motivation. We share and constantly reinforce these principles with the students as a way of life.

We offer a rigorous curriculum and a broad enrichment programme and our staff work tirelessly to support and nurture our students talents. We believe that all our students can achieve excellence and that they deserve the very best in order to reach their potential. Our caring environment values achievement and we insist on tolerance and mutual respect.

We provide high quality teaching, a curriculum that supports individual needs and acceleration, a regular and robust assessment process, high quality enrichment activities, educational events. We also encourage pupils to take leadership roles within our community.



“Students speak positively about the impact that coming to EBN has had on their life – chances. They are proud of what they have achieved and view the future with optimism. One said, “This place has opened doors for me.””


Leadership & Management – “The academy’s leaders and governors share a determination to provide the best for the students so they leave EBN well prepared for the next steps in their lives. This shows clearly in the high expectations they have of the staff and of the students.”
