Birmingham Little Success Stories

Birmingham Little Success Stories

Every half term Aspire People shout about all the positive news from schools throughout Birmingham. Take a look at what our Birmingham schools have been up to recently.

“King Edward VI Five Ways School in Birmingham has been placed 4th in the top 100 secondary schools by GCSE results in 2015. The pupils achieved 100% A*-C grades including Maths and English, with an average of 642.7 points per pupil.”

“Birmingham opens its doors to the first state school based at a university, named ‘The University of Birmingham School’ situated in Selly Oak. The School claims to offer  ‘private school-standard’ education for free, where pupils will gain five hours of enrichment per week on top of their core subjects. The aim is to provide an ‘unrivaled education experience’.”

“Congratulations to Grendon Primary School! Who won Free Radio’s ‘Christmas Stars’ Birmingham in a very competitive final.”

“Pupils from Billesley Primary School have been recreating the famous ‘Lunch atop a Skyscraper scene’ – an iconic photo of builders sitting on a skyscraper with the skyline view of New York City behind. The idea came from a member of the building company who are currently working to extend the school.”

“Birmingham city’s council is working towards becoming a ‘free school meals city’, promising free meals to every primary student in Birmingham schools. A trust has been formed to fund these free Meals called the ‘Free School Meals Trust’ which is hoping to attract funding and sponsorship from businesses and charities to speed up the process. This idea is to encourage good health in primary schools around Birmingham.”
