Life to the full in pursuit of what is good, right, and true


Independent Learning

Independent Learning Independent Learning is our take on ‘homework’. It encourages our students to practise recalling knowledge outside of lessons, fostering the all important skill of ‘independence’. All students have an account to access their Independent Learning through Tassomai. If students forget their password, they can reset it using their Academy email address here. Students who achieve their daily goal will receive Q-Points. Students at KS3 (Years 7-9) should spend approximately 30 minutes per working day on Independent Learning. This increases to approximately 45 minutes to an hour for KS4 (Years 10-11) and KS5 (Years 12 – 13), in addition to any work specifically set for their courses. 


All information for candidates can be found on the JCQ website here. The LRS issues Unique Learner Numbers (ULN) and creates Personal Learning records across England, Wales, and Northern Ireland, and is operated by the Education and Skills Funding Agency, an executive agency of the Department for Education (DfE). For more information about how information is processed, and to access your Personal Learning Record, please click here. Third Party Collection of Examination Documents: please ensure that the candidate completes this form and that the person collecting the certificates/results has a valid form of Photo ID.

Remote Learning

Remote Learning In the event of Academy closure or student absence, students can continue to access their learning remotely, and for this we use Google Classroom. All students have a Q3 Academy Great Barr Google Account that they can use to access this which will allow them in turn to see resources and activities specific to their classes. Students can log in to Google Classroom using their Academy email address which is in the format and their password which is the same as the one they use to log on to an Academy device. Watch this video here to see how to use Google Classroom. Google Classroom can be easily accessed through the internet browser of any device connected to the internet (mobile phone, tablet, computer/laptop, smart TV, PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, or XBox, etc.). Where using a mobile device or tablet, students may find it helpful to download the Google Classroom app and relevant Google apps such as Google Docs and Google Sheets to allow them to edit shared files. These are available in the App/Play Store.
