... And a very exciting year it will be too! 🎢🎻🎺🎼

Who is hoping to be in our very first Year 7 or Year 12 cohort this time next year?
Students will be immersed in musical experiences throughout their time at the academy, both inside and outside the classroom.

Thematic curriculum delivery includes bespoke musical themes that explore the rudiments of music, written in partnership with musicians with global acclaim. Students will have the opportunity to practise, rehearse and perform together, developing transferable skills that will support them to achieve academic and musical excellence as they grow to become confident and empathetic young people.

➑️ https://shirelandcbso.org.uk/
We want to create happy, healthy students who feel that their school and peers support them.

Our pastoral support starts with the close ties that families and students make with their Literacy for Life teacher, who sees your child for 17 hours per week in Year 7 and is the first point of contact for any issues or concerns you may have.

https://shirelandcbso.org.uk/
🎺 Less than 1 month until applications for our music aptitude programme close! 🎻

Find out more: https://shirelandcbso.org.uk/admissions/year-7-admissions/

This is separate to the main Year 7 admissions process and you must complete both application forms to be eligible.
The range of musical opportunities and experiences at the Academy will include:

🎡 Instrumental and vocal lessons.
🎡 Opportunities to study music theory and prepare for theoretical and practical exams.
🎡 An extensive enrichment programme offering diverse opportunities in a range of styles, instrumental experiences, solo and ensemble skills.
🎡 Curriculum enrichment opportunities to perform and compose within and outside of the Academy.
🎡 Access to music technology to compose soundtracks in response to stimuli.
🎡 Work with professionals to develop a wider understanding of the careers that complement musical performance and composition, gaining access to working environments and equipment as appropriate.

The Shireland CBSO Academy is the result of an exciting partnership between Shireland Collegiate Academy Trust and City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra.
