Zero NEETs Score for Kirk Balk Academy - A score that is significantly better than the National Average

For the second consecutive year Kirk Balk Academy has achieved extremely low NEET figures (Not in Education, Employment or Training)

We are delighted to announce that currently, our figure for last year's leavers stands at 0%.

The national average is approximately 5% for school leavers. This means that out of the 218 Year 11 students we had last year, all 218 of them moved onto a positive destination which included college, 6th form, apprenticeships, employment or training.

We are extremely proud of these figures which could not be achieved without the support from all staff and the students themselves. Our current academy strap line is 'No Limits' because we fully believe that with hard work and dedication, there should be no limits to what we can achieve. Our work in this area is not just about offering information about Post 16 pathway, it's empowering, motivating and inspiring our students giving them the belief that they can achieve anything that they aspire to.
