Message from Mr Cliff Hall, Principal and Chief Executive, Birmingham Metropolitan College
Birmingham Metropolitan College is proud to be sponsoring Harborne Academy. Our approach to the Academy is based on providing a good quality education which encourages high aspirations in learners. We aim to drive innovation so that learners are able to respond in a changing world, where it is vital they have the skills to represent themselves in all aspects of their lives.
Our ethos will be to offer a personalised approach, to cater for each individual’s needs and our focus will be on closing the gap on current and future skills shortages in order to improve the life chances for our young people. We have supported the Academy in building an inspiring learning environment for our learners which we also want parents and the wider community in the local area, to be able to use for a range of community activities.
The first-class learning enviroment includes the The Harborne Academy: Samsung Professional Development Centre (PDC) which creates a cutting-edge facility allowing tutors and students to be at the forefront of acquiring up-to-date technological skills. Alongside the facilities we have also been developing our curriculum to provide appropriate learning pathways for students to develop the skills they need within an increasingly highly technologically scientific world.
If you choose to send your child to Harborne Academy you can be confident they will receive the care and commitment necessary to feel at home and achieve their very best. I look forward to welcoming your child to the Academy and working with you in the future.
