Student gets into Birmingham Ormiston Academy

A STUDENT from Sutton on Sea has been awarded a place at a brand new specialist creative, digital and performing arts academy.

Holly Cox, 16, has beaten off tough competition to become one of the first Dance students to attend the new multi-million pound Birmingham Ormiston Academy (BOA).

BOA is the first academy of its kind outside of London and opened its doors this month to digital and performing arts students from across the region.

Located in Birmingham’s Eastside, the new state of the art academy is state-funded and open to 14-19 year olds hoping to pursue a career in the creative industries.
