Mark Your Calendars: 2023 Open Events Announced for September 2024 Start

Shireland CBSO Academy is delighted to announce that it will be opening its doors to prospective students and their parents on Wednesday 20 September 5.00pm-7.30pm and Saturday 23 September 9.00am-11.00am. No booking required.

The Academy is proud to be the first state school in Britain to be established in partnership with a national orchestra. In collaboration with the City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra, we offer students from Sandwell and the wider West Midlands an exceptional education and the opportunity to pursue musical excellence.

During this event, families will be able to tour the academy’s brand-new, state-of-the-art music facilities and sports centre, meet teachers and the academy’s leadership team, and talk to staff and students about academy life.

Principal, David Green, said: “We look forward to welcoming students and their families to our open event and showing them the unique, unrivalled opportunities and experiences that await them at our brand-new Academy.

“As we anticipate a large number of families visiting us, please arrive early and allow ample time to get the most out of your visit; attending our open events will give you a valuable opportunity to see our facilities and meet our team to help you make the right decision for your child’s education.”

Applications for parents applying for secondary school places in Sandwell opened Monday 17 July 2023, with applications in Dudley opening Friday 1 September 2023. From these dates, parents of children moving into year 7 in 2024 will be able to apply for a place via their local authority.

Applications are welcome from students from Sandwell and the wider West Midlands. A guide to applications can be found here: Year 7 admissions – Shireland CBSO Academy
