Admission to the


Open Evening

Our annual Open Evening is a chance for prospective students and their families to see our Academy in action. Due to Covid 19, unfortunately we are unable to invite prospective students and their families to visit our Academy.

To ensure that prospective students and their families have the opportunity to find out about what we have on offer here at Small Heath Leadership Academy we will be uploading a video to the Academy’s website. The video will show in-class demonstrations and activities, exciting displays and a speech from the Principal. The video will be available to view from mid October 2020.

Please find a copy of our prospectus using the link below. If you require any further information please do not hesitate to contact us at the Academy on 0121464 7997.

We look forward to receiving your application.
