How do I apply?

Our inclusive admissions process will, at all times, be open, transparent and fair, and will meet the requirements of the national Schools Admissions Code, the Appeals Code and Admissions Legislation.

Shireland CBSO Academy will process applications inside the normal Local Authority process for coordinating school offers. 

We will have 150 year 7 places and 60 Year 12 places for the academic year beginning September 2024.

Apply for Year 7 - September 2024 entry

Applications for Year 7 places starting September 2024 remain open.

You must apply directly to the Academy for a place in addition to any local authority application form that you may complete.

Nodal points for Year 7 admissions

Where the number of applications for admission is greater than the number of places available in a year group, applications will be considered against the oversubscription criteria as described in our Admissions Policy. 

We have six nodal points for admission located in the six towns of Sandwell – Wednesbury, Oldbury, Smethwick, Tipton, West Bromwich and Rowley Regis.

In a nodal point structure, we look at how close students live to their closest nodal point rather than how far they live from the Academy, which will ensure that every child in Sandwell will have the opportunity to gain a place at the Academy.

Our Admissions Policy will provide more detailed location information.

Apply for Year 12

Applications for Year 12 entry in September 2023 are now open and run throughout the academic year 2022-2023.
