Situated in Solihull, just minutes off junction 4 of the M42, the new alternative provision Academy will provide a safe, well-ordered, caring and highly supportive learning environment that will deliver high-quality education to students who need a more closely- focused learning solution. The use of outstanding, inspiring teaching and clear, consistent guidance and support will play a pivotal role in helping each child fulfill their maximum potential for growth, self-worth, and self-control.
