Welcome from the CEO

A warm welcome to BOA Stage and Screen Production and thank you for taking the time to visit our website.

BOA Stage and Screen Production is a brand-new state-funded academy for 16-19 year olds, specialising in the technical and production skills required for theatre, film, TV and new and developing online platforms.

Located near Birmingham’s Jewellery Quarter, the academy will open to Year 12 students in September 2021. It will provide an industry-led approach to developing the skills and experience of young people in both existing and emerging production techniques and broadcast technologies.

BOA Stage & Screen is one hundred percent selective based on aptitude in a student’s chosen creative pathway. The application process is designed to demonstrate skill in a particular specialism and is indicative of the importance we place on a student’s passion and commitment to their creative field.

We pride ourselves on giving talented young people an exceptional education as well as exciting opportunities to gain on-the-ground industry experience. It’s never been more important to invest in the next generation of creative talent and our curriculum is carefully designed to develop the talent, passion and potential of every student.

We work in close collaboration with our creative and industry partners to develop and deliver specialist programmes of study. Through partnerships with leading organisations including Birmingham Repertory Theatre, the BBC and PRG, we provide students with access to high-quality teaching and invaluable real-world experience - equipping young people with transferable skills and providing a stepping stone into work, apprenticeships or higher education.

Academic excellence and unrivalled industry support is at the very heart of BOA Stage and Screen Production and our approach to teaching and creative partnerships offers a unique learning experience. We are committed to ensuring that every student can unlock their potential, enjoy first-hand industry experience and excel in their chosen specialism.
