We have limited places available at JQA. If you would like your son / daughter to join the Academy, email [email protected], or visit Reception for an application form. You can find our Admissions details here.
Jewellery Quarter Academy is an 11-16 school. We have 120 places available in Year 7 each year.
Applications for admission to the academy in Year 7 must be made via Birmingham City Council’s Common Application Form. The process for transfer into a secondary school, including the deadlines for applications, and the link to the common application form can be found on the Birmingham City Council website at www.birmingham.gov.uk/schooladmissions
If there are more applications than there are places available at the Academy, then places will be awarded on the oversubscription criteria set out in our admissions arrangements available below:
Any child with an Education and Health Care Plan which names Jewellery Quarter Academy is required to be admitted to the academy. This gives such children overall priority for admission to the academy. This is not an oversubscription criterion.
Applications made outside the normal admissions round (in-year admissions) should be made directly to the academy. Parents/carers can apply for a place for their child at any time and to any academy. On receipt of an in-year application, the academy will notify the local authority of both the application and its outcome, to allow the local authority to keep up to date with figures on the availability of academy places in Birmingham.
