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



The way we see ‘homework’ is that it encourages our students to practise recalling knowledge outside of lessons, fostering the all important skill of independence. Students at KS3 (Years 7-9) should spend approximately 30 minutes per subject on homework. Students should then spend at least an hour on homework and independent study at KS4 (Years 10-11) and KS5 (Years 12 – 13), in addition to any work specifically set for their courses.  Students can access their online learning platforms here.


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.

Summer 2024 – Examinations Timetable (Provisional) You can access the provisional examination timetable here.  

Microsoft Teams

Microsoft Teams In the event that we need to switch to remote teaching, students will be able to access this through Microsoft Teams. This is the same system through which their Independent Learning is set, so is familiar to them. All students have a Q3 Academy Great Barr Microsoft 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 Microsoft Teams 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. Microsoft Teams can be easily accessed through the internet browser of any device connected to the internet (mobile phone, tablet, computer/laptop, smart TV, games console, etc.). Where using a mobile device or tablet, students may find it helpful to download the Microsoft Teams app available in the App/Play Store.
