Sixth Form Admissions
My name is Mr. Z Mahmood and I am the Head of Sixth Form at Harborne Academy.
My role as Head of Sixth Form is ensure that students achieve their full potential and go onto higher education and study the choice of Undergraduate course they desire. I provide students the opportunity to gain valuable work experience of the career they want to pursue with my links with local hospitals and businesses.
We have an uncompromising commitment to ensure that every child achieves their academic potential at Harborne Sixth form. Our curriculum has been carefully designed to secure the best possible outcomes for our pupils. We also have support systems in place for students that need extra support and guidance to achieve.
In order to support our curriculum, we have also developed and invested in a simple but broad set of Academy PLEDGES that students are expected to complete during the course of their time at the academy, these include:
- Business Enterprise
- Work Experience
- Lower school class support
- Reading scheme with year 7
- Voluntary work
- Sports opportunities
- Charity work
Many of our students have applied for Medical related courses to University and we have 100% record of students attending University or going in to Employment. The type of courses that students have applied and gained places include:
