The Academy

Shireland CBSO Academy is an 11-18 Academy which opened in September 2023. It is the first state school in the country to have a partnership with a professional orchestra.  Based in Providence Place, West Bromwich, the Academy will work in partnership with the City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra (CBSO) and serve all of Sandwell and the wider West Midlands.  The Academy is for all students who have a passion or talent for music – they do not necessarily need to already play an instrument.

This is an exciting and rewarding opportunity to be part of a brand-new academy, with the potential to shape your career with us as the academy grows. We are looking for someone who has a passion for working with young people.
