Welcome To Percy Shurmer Academy

Percy Shurmer Academy is part of the Academies Enterprise Trust. 

We aim for all children and adults to flourish at Percy Shurmer Academy.  What this means to us is that they:

  • gain the skills, knowledge and confidence to achieve all they can
  • develop a love of learning and enjoy their time at the Academy
  • make friends and show respect to others
  • broaden their experiences and understanding of the wider world

We will work closely with families, the Academies Enterprise Trust, the local community, our network of schools and Academies in this shared endeavour.


Percy Shurmer Academy is a 'Good' School.

JLT Trip To Houses Of Parliament (12/12/2016)

Our Junior Leadership Team (JLT) traveled  by train and tube to visit the Houses of Parliament and be given a guided tour of the House of Commons and the House of Lords. We were allowed to follow in the footsteps of the Queen and imagined what it would be like to debate our views against the opposition party. We could almost hear the Leader of the House shouting 'Order, order!'


Year 5 Trip To The National Space Centre (03/11/2016)

We had an amazing time at the National Space Centre today! We watched a planetarium show all about the lives of astronauts, re-enacted part of the Apollo 13 story in a model spaceship, controlled the Mars Rover, took part in the Space Race between the USA and the USSR and saw lots of real things that had actually been into space! We also learnt the answer to the burning question ‘how do astronauts go to the toilet?’

JLT Meet The Deputy Lord Mayor (12/10/2016) 

Junior leaders at both Percy Shurmer Academy and Montgomery Primary Academy went to meet the Deputy Lord Mayor, Raymond Hassall. He gave the children a tour of the council house and spoke about the history of the job.  

One of the jobs Deputy Lord Mayor, Raymond Hassall was involved in was ensuring all children in Birmingham schools were receiving enough physical activity. We were able to tell him about the different after school clubs the children took part in. He was really impressed!
