Students can join Global Academy at the start of Year 10 or the start of Year 12.  To begin the admissions journey, we recommend that you join us for one of our open events so that you are fully informed about the Academy and what makes us unique.

If you want to join after the event, you will need to complete an application form for Year 10 or Year 12 . Once you've applied, you will be invited to a one to one meeting at the Academy to discuss your passion for Broadcast and Digital Media and have the opportunity to ask any questions you have to make sure this is the right place for you.

Key Dates

Open Event on the 4th October, 10th January or 28th March. If you want an additional appointment at the Academy, book into one of our Private Views on the 9th and 18th April.

Apply as soon as you are ready. 

Year 11 Global Academy students that want to stay and progress to Year 12 must apply by 30th January.
