Published Admission Number: 160

Year 7 Admissions

Jewellery Quarter Academy is an 11-16 school. We have 160 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:

Jewellery Quarter Academy Admission Arrangements 2020

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.

In-Year Admissions

Applications made outside the normal admissions round (in-year admissions) should be made directly to the academy by visiting reception to collect an application form. 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.

Please do not hesitate to contact Bryoni Wareing ([email protected]) or Jamie Barton at Jewellery Quarter Academy via reception if you have an enquiry for your child to join Team JQA.
