Admissions Policy

Ark Boulton Academy is a non-selective, non-denominational, mixed school serving 11–16 year olds. Each year we admit 180 children into Year 7. To apply, you will need to go through the Birmingham City Council website – just visit www.birmingham.gov.uk/schooladmissions. If you need any help with the admissions process, then please give us a call.

When we admit students, we prioritise children with statements of special educational needs. Then, if our academy is oversubscribed, we offer places to children in the following order of priority:

  • Looked After Children and children who have been previously looked after.
  • Children of staff who are filling a demonstrable skills shortage.
  • Children who, at the time of the admission, have a sibling, resident at the same address, who attends the academy.
  • Children of staff who are not filling a demonstrable skills shortage.
  • Children who live closest to the academy by straight line distance from their home to the main entrance.
