Aston Manor Academy
Welcome to Aston Manor Academy – a successful 11-18 mixed Academy in the heart of Birmingham, serving the inner-city communities of Aston, Handsworth and Nechells. A school with a long and established history of academic and co-curricular success, Aston Manor Academy continues to provide a wonderfully well-rounded education to bright, ambitious and talented young people.
At Aston Manor Academy, pupils make remarkable progress academically which is well above the national average and this continues to improve year on year. This s an outstanding achievement which is made possible by the hard work and dedication the staff and students make throughout the years.
As always, sport excels at Aston Manor. We have students competing at national level and our Sixth form sporting success has led to a number of students gaining scholarships overseas. We have developed a strong partnership with Aston Villa Football Club, and Aston Basketball is fast becoming a centre of excellence. Students are able to compete whilst completing level 3 programmes of study. Our extra-curricular programme is extensive and our Saturday Club provides numerous sporting activities for all ages, including basketball, football and boxing. Our music programmes also offer a wide range of opportunities for students to channel their creativity.
Results for both vocational and academic courses at our Sixth Form are outstanding and our progress score places us as the highest performing Sixth form in Birmingham. 100% of our Year 13 students were successful in obtaining university places or apprenticeships last year.
We always welcome visitors to the Academy and encourage you to come along to see the work that we do for yourself.
