Welcome to

Q3 Academy Great Barr

Guidance for students

  • We're not expecting you to arrive to the Academy knowing everything, so don't worry - we'll give you time to settle and get to grips with our way of working when you join us.

  • Have a go at some of the challenges we've set on here; they'll help with your transition. It's a big step to Year 7, but we want to help make it really easy, so whilst it might be a little scary at first, don't worry - this is normal! None of these challenges are compulsory, but we bet you'll have a bit of fun doing some of them!
