I would like to take a moment to share my thoughts about our Italian adventures. What an amazing experience with all of this down to our fantastic students and my wonderful team of staff. It has been my absolute pleasure to experience Italy with superbly behaved, mature and most importantly fun and enthusiastic students.
You were all such endearing company with lots of memories made. So very proud of you all! A true and spirited example of ABK at it's best 👌
Enjoy the rest of your half term everyone.

Some photos from our wonderful Culture Day today.


Applications are rolling in, with over 100 already. If you have not applied yet. the deadline is Friday 6 January. Get those applications in folks!


Last week Year 13 Geographers visited the home of Geography in Kensington, London. They attended lectures led by examiners, and authors of the textbooks used for their studies. The students can now used tips and tricks picked up today, in their exam responses later in the year. I big shout out to how they all kept their spirits high on such a long day that was finished off with a 2 hour train journey back to Solihull that had standing room only. Very proud of the Ambition, Bravery and Kindness exhibited by our ABK students today.


We are anticipating a large volume of cars for Sixth Form Open Evening tomorrow, if you are able to car share or walk this may help ease congestion!


We hope members of our school community had a great time celebrating the Festival of Diwali this week.

A new segregated route into town centre which protects pedestrians, joggers and cyclists has been shortlisted for a national award.

A spokesperson for SMBC said: “The 3km Active Travel route along the to Solihull town centre, incorporating , uses Department for Transport funding which was made available in response to the reduction in car use during the pandemic.

“The innovative design balances the needs of users on the busy corridor by reallocating road space to create a segregated lane, with a physical barrier using wands and orcas, for cyclists, joggers and walkers. Space for the active travel route was created by removing central hatching and reducing lane widths, but no road lanes were lost in the creation of the route.”

Solihull Council’s Cabinet Member for Economy and Infrastructure, Cllr Ken Hawkins, said: “I’m really proud of this innovative new active travel route and I’m pleased that it has been shortlisted for the Active Travel Scheme of the Year Award at the national Highways Awards. While I acknowledge that some people don’t see the benefits of the scheme, I am starting to see more and more people using the new route to travel actively into the town centre.

“We have listened to the concerns expressed and will continue to monitor the use of the route. As a result, we have created more signage, additional lines and lane buffers and we have smoothed out the gradients by the bus stops. There are still a few more tweaks to be made over the next few of weeks but I think we are nearly there now.

“This is very much a pilot scheme for Solihull, but we need to be experimental if we are going to reduce the use of polluting motor vehicles on our roads and encourage clean air alternatives. The more people that can be encouraged to walk, cycle or jog the better for our air quality and of course the health of the people who make those changes. It is simply not sustainable to continue as we are with polluting vehicles using finite oil resources. We need to try new ways of travelling and this new route complements other pilot schemes across the borough, such as bicycles for hire, free and low cost cycle training, walking and cycling groups in order to meet our Net Zero Action Plan.

“Lastly, I would add that confident cyclists can still cycle in the road lanes. The new route is about offering a safe, segregated alternative for less experienced cyclists who would like to cycle safely but don’t currently have the confidence to cycle alongside cars driving at speed.”

The Active Travel Scheme of the Year Award takes place in London on 19 October.
