FlashAcademy Success Story: Fortis Academy

Fortis Academy is a co-educational secondary school located in the Great Barr area of Birmingham, England and is one of the largest schools in Europe with the capacity to educate 2500 pupils. Proudly representing a rich culturally diverse group of over 600 EAL pupils, Fortis Academy are committed to providing inclusive curriculum learning to all their EAL pupils so that all learners have the opportunity for success.

With more than 20+ different home languages spoken at the school, Fortis Academy are reaching incredible milestones and making phenomenal impact in EAL individual learning. (Check out the stats below the video!). We met with this dynamic team of passionate EAL teachers at Fortis Academy, to better understand how they use FlashAcademy to accelerate their pupil’s English language acquisition.

We had a fantastic day!

Watch the video below to see how Hollie O’Sullivan, Director of EAL at Fortis Academy, is supporting her diverse group of EAL learners to learn social and curriculum English vocabulary, phonics, grammar and handwriting, from a vast array of different home languages.

“Over 90% of our EAL Induction students made at least 1 proficiency grade of progress with over 50% of them achieving 2 grades of progress last year. Coupled with our induction course, FlashAcademy has truly helped our students transition through their proficiency stages at an accelerated rate.”
