If you wish to apply for a place at either Birmingham Ormiston Academy, The Aston University Engineering Academy, Kajans Hospitality and Catering Studio or an academy in another local authority for September 2013, you should apply when your child is in Year 9 to the local authority in which you live. If you live in Birmingham you should apply online or complete the Local Authority Preference Form (14-19). In the case of Birmingham Ormiston Academy you will also need to complete their supplementary information form.
You can view further information on the application process for each Academy in Section 4 of the parents' information booklet
Things to consider:
Before you apply online or complete the Local Authority Preference Form (14-19) it is very important that you contact the academy and attend information events to understand their admission criteria, and discuss the implications of a move for your child with the Principal and academy staff.
• How will your child cope with learning new rules and having to do things differently?
• If your child your leaves their current school that place will be offered to another child from the school’s waiting list and he/she may not be able to return.
