Letter to parents

20th May 2022 

Dear Parent/Carer, 

We are delighted that you have chosen Arena Academy for your child’s secondary school education and look forward to working closely with you over the next 5 years.  Over the coming weeks, we will be sending you an Arena Academy Welcome Pack and further information regarding our Induction Day and Evening, which will be taking place on Wednesday 6th July 2022. 

In the meantime, we kindly ask all parents/carers to complete our electronic Admissions Form, which can be found at the bottom of this webpage.  This should be completed by Friday 3rd June 2022.

Please complete all sections of the form, making sure we have at least two emergency contacts and include any health conditions your child may have as well as their Doctor’s name and address.

Within the Admissions Form, there is a link to a Pupil Premium/Free School Meal application form.  You will also find a uniform list and contact details for our current uniform providers, plus a media consent form and ethnic monitoring form.

We also require a photograph of your child’s birth certificate or passport.  Please email this to [email protected], putting your child’s name in the subject heading.  You will receive an automatic response when we have received this.

All information requested will help ensure that your child settles down as quickly and as happily as possible and will always be treated with the strictest confidence.

If you have any questions before our Induction Day and Evening, need assistance completing the Admission Form or prefer a paper copy of the form, please do not hesitate to contact Admissions on 0121 729 7310 or email; [email protected]

Yours sincerely,

Mr Raj Mann 


We understand that starting a new school can be a daunting experience for new year 7 students, but please tell them not to worry. Two of our current year 7 students have written these messages for those who are making the move to Arena from year 6. Please share them with your children.

You can also hear from other students about their experiences at Arena here.
