Welcome from The Principal

I am delighted to welcome you to BOA Digital Technologies Academy and thank you for taking the time to find out more.



As Principal, I believe that BOA Digital Technologies offers a truly unique and distinctive vision for education. The academy welcomed its first intake of Year 7 students in September 2022 and provides a new model of teaching underpinned by digital skills and learning.  

The digital industries are accelerating at pace, offering a myriad of exciting career opportunities for young people. Our academy will be at the forefront of this growth, and ideally placed to respond to the growing needs of the sector, by combining industry partnerships with a dynamic curriculum and outstanding teaching.

Located in the very heart of Birmingham’s burgeoning digital and technology hub, we will maximise future opportunities for all our students by providing them with a broad range of digital skills and industry experience. This will be supported by challenging technology projects which will promote the learning and development of higher-level digital skills. 

Our curriculum will bring all academic subjects to life through the use of digital technologies. Every student will benefit from unrivalled access to state-of-the-art resources and facilities, coupled with collaborative industry partnerships to create an educational experience where innovation is placed front and centre.

In addition to exceptional teaching, we are committed to delivering the very highest standards of pastoral care to every student. The mental and social well-being of our learners is of upmost importance, and we’re dedicated to supporting their emotional development to ensure they are fully prepared for their journey towards higher education or the workplace. 

If you are currently looking to apply for a secondary school place, please do feel free to register your interest or contact us directly for more information.

I hope that you are inspired by the ambition and vision of BOA Digital Technologies Academy, and I look forward to welcoming all new students as we embark upon this exciting journey.

Best Wishes
