Myles Academy is set up to help pupils who have an ECHP, are looked after or who have found mainstream school a challenge. We support our pupils through specialist teaching and interventions, including a tailored curriculum. Our staff have a relentless determination to help every child who comes through the doors to succeed. Every day is a fresh start at Myles Academy and we tell pupils that it’s not what they’ve done in the past that’s important, it’s what they will do in the future.
Our expectations are very high for both behaviour and achievement, because we know that we can help children make much more progress than they would within a mainstream school environment. With this in mind, we recognise that for many of our children the journey of education so far has been far from easy, which is why we think creatively about our approach to learning. We know each child well enough to be able to set ambitious, realistic targets and put in place a personalised education plan and support that is right for them.
Students at Myles Academy are aged between 13 and 19 years, KS3, KS4 and KS5, but their lessons aren't restricted to that of mainstream schools. From achieving Level 2 Functional Skills, to pursuing short course qualifications and enjoying extra-curricular activities, there is plenty to get young people engaged.
Whether a student is part-time or full-time, Myles Academy aims to get them "Wanting to learn", reviving their passion for learning and for life. Our learners are taught in small groups up to six pupils, with two members of staff supporting their individual needs. We can also provide one-to-one teaching where necessary.
Most Myles Academy students are from the West Midlands, but we welcome people from outside these areas too. If you are interested in visiting Myles Academy, or finding out how to obtain a placement, please get in touch with us.
Whatever a young person's needs, Myles Academy can be a flexible place of learning. Whether you're looking for a full-time placement for five days a week or need just a day or two. Arrangements can be made to accommodate new students. Myles Academy is a non-denominational school for boys and girls.
Myles Academy placement programme can be tailored to suit the individual, and "creative packages" are available. Our range of qualifications and award schemes are set up specifically to enable young people to participate no matter how many days they are present. Sport and leisure activities are also a hugely important part of life at Myles Academy, enabling our students to get fit, have fun and let off steam, as well as develop new hobbies and interests.
These are on the curriculum for full and part-time attendees. In return, pupils must sign up to abide by Myles Academy’s Expectations, including an anti-bullying policy.
