Applications are now open for students joining year 7 in September 2021. We welcome students to the Oldbury Academy family from primary schools across the local area and we look forward to meeting our 2021 intake.

Due to the current global situation we have had to cancel our face to face events for the safety of everyone involved. However, we want to share the first-class educational experience we offer, our fantastic facilities and caring staff. This year we are moving our events online in the form of informative video publications and virtual meetings with primary school classes. All of these can be enjoyed from the safety of the classroom or home in your own time. All you will need is an internet connected computer or smart device, such as a mobile on 4G.

To be the first to hear about our upcoming virtual publications and to receive our video links please provide your details below.
