Solihull Alternative Provision Multi Academy Trust

Our Achievements

We began with just 30 students in Solihull Academy back in April 2018 and have now grown to become a Multi Academy Trust helping over 400 students on their way to a better future.  

Nationally, between 50% and 67% of children referred to alternative provisions schools will be NEET (young people not in education, employment or training) within three months of leaving school.

As a Trust our NEET percentage last year was 0%!

Nationally, the average number of children in alternative provision education who achieve a 4 or higher in both English and Maths is 4%.

Last year, our Trust achieved three times the national average with 12% of students achieving a 4 or above in both English and Maths. Solihull Academy alone was 14%.
