We are very proud that Arnold Hill Spencer Academy has successfully retained our quality assurance career mark award.

The assessor was very pleased at the progress we have made, to ensure that our pupils are receiving outstanding quality careers information, advice and guidance.

The feedback from our assessor was very positive and he was very pleased to see that we have retained very low NEET (pupils that have not progressed into education, employment or training) figures over the last four years, which shows that our pupils are fully informed of the choices they have at post 16 and 18.

We are proud of the work we have done towards fulfilling all of the 8 Gatsby Benchmarks and are pleased that we are working at higher than the national average at fulfilling all 8 benchmarks.
