Erasmus Darwin Academy welcomes admissions enquiries from local parents on behalf of their children. The main principle of admission to Erasmus Darwin Academy is to maintain the character of the Academy as an inclusive school, providing for the needs of young persons within the 11-18 age range who live in Burntwood and the surrounding areas.
In September 2015, we admitted students into our current Year 7 from 26 different primary schools. Admission to our Academy is not dependent on any 'voluntary' contribution. The Academy endeavours to provide places for students whose parents wish them to attend Erasmus Darwin Academy, provided that they can be accommodated within the admission limits. Students will be admitted at the age of 11+ without reference to ability or aptitude, using the criteria contained in our Admissions Policy. The planned admission number for September 2017 is 185.
