CBSO Academy is an exciting new school opening to Years 7 and 12 in September
2023 and is the first state school in the country to have a partnership with a
professional orchestra. Based in
Providence Place, West Bromwich, the Academy will work in partnership with the
City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra (CBSO) and serve all of Sandwell and the
wider West Midlands. The Academy is for
all students who have a passion or talent for music – they do not necessarily
need to already play an instrument.
Shireland Collegiate Academy Trust is a
recognised leader in education and was founded by three-times Ofsted
‘Outstanding’ Shireland Collegiate Academy: Our students will study
a full, broad and balanced curriculum, seen through the lens of music. In Year 7, we will follow the ‘Literacy for
Life’ model developed by our Trust over the last 15 years: Students learn via a
thematic approach to their studies, spending 17 hours a week with the same
teacher, enabling them to smoothly transition from primary to secondary school.
Year 12, students will be part of a cohort of 60 young people studying at least
one music A level or equivalent qualification.
With many schools no longer offering A level music qualifications, and
those that do only having a handful of students, the opportunity to join a
cohort of this size who have a common interest in music brings exciting
possibilities for collaboration.
Come and meet
us and find out more about the Trust, the school and the role at our Secondary
Teacher Recruitment Event. Wednesday 11 January 2023, 4.30pm – 7.00pm at West
Bromwich Collegiate Academy, Kelvin Way, West Bromwich.
