About BBG Academy
BBG Academy is an inclusive 11-16 school in the heart of Birkenshaw. As part of the Rodillian Multi Academy Trust, we hold the highest standards for behaviour and discipline; for aspirations within and beyond the classroom; for support within and around the school.
BBG Academy regularly appears in the top 20% of schools nationally, and within the top three schools in Kirklees based on both progress and attainment.
Ofsted’s 2021 inspection saw BBG Academy rated 'Good' in all areas - a fantastic achievement for all involved with the BBG community. The report indicates that “Staff and pupils are proud to be part of the school. One pupil described the school as a big family."
We believe that every single child can achieve their personal best with resilience and grit - and this tenet is at the heart of everything we do. From Year 7, our students are taught to be resilient in a dynamic, innovative curriculum that responds to educational research and the needs of our pupils.
Students have opportunities to learn how to be resilient in the face of difficulties and failure - in chess, British Sign Language, and in debate (amongst other things) at school - and in physical pursuits and independence found at our Resilience Camps. We teach them that with determination, improvement is not only likely - it is inevitable.
We are rightly proud of our students and their achievements - but it is our colleagues and the support from the wider Rodillian Multi Academy Trust that makes us truly unique.
We ensure that our colleagues have the opportunity to teach without disruption, to continue their own professional development in a bespoke programme, and to ensure they have every tool they need to be successful in their career.
In short, BBG Academy is an amazing place to learn, to teach and to thrive.
