Awarded Pupil Premium Primary School of the Year 2014- West Midlands.
Flax Hill Junior Academy prides itself in its SAT's results which in 2016 were considerably above National levels in all subjects.
We are a busy, thriving school committed to providing our children with a broad range of opportunities to learn, develop and shine. The school orchestra and choir regularly participate in musical events in the wider community
Our school’s main aim is to create a happy, caring, secure environment in which our children can develop confidence, individuality and good learning habits. We help pupils develop lively, enquiring minds. We encourage them to speak thoughtfully and confidently and we teach them to work and play with care and consideration for others. Most of all, we want each child to feel they have helped to make our school a successful, happy place to be.
We pride ourselves on our children’s attitudes and achievements and we know these are due to a very close partnership between our school and your family. We have strong links with nearby Whittington Barracks and good links with local churches and businesses in the area.
We hope your child will feel happy at Flax Hill Junior Academy and will achieve his or her best. Our promise to you is that we will do our best for your child.
Our promise to you is that we will try our very best to fulfil our school aim:-
'Everyone is valued and shares responsibility for the challenging learning that takes place at Flax Hill.' ...Read more

Interpreting catchment maps
The maps show in colour where the pupils at a school came from*. Red = most pupils to Blue = fewest.
Where the map is not coloured we have no record in the previous three years of any pupils being admitted from that location based on the options chosen.
For help and explanation of our catchment maps see: Catchment maps explained
If there are more applicants to a school than it has places for, who gets in is determined by which applicants best fulfil the admissions criteria.
Admissions criteria are often complicated, and may change from year to year. The best source of information is usually the relevant local authority website, but once you have set your sights on a school it is a good idea to ask them how they see things panning out for the year that you are interested in.
Many schools admit children based on distance from the school or a fixed catchment area. For such schools, the cut-off distance will vary from year to year, especially if the school give priority to siblings, and the pattern will be of a central core with outliers (who will mostly be siblings). Schools that admit on the basis of academic or religious selection will have a much more scattered pattern.
*The coloured areas outlined in black are Census Output Areas. These are made up of a group of neighbouring postcodes, which accounts for their odd shapes. These provide an indication, but not a precise map, of the school’s catchment: always refer to local authority and school websites for precise information.
The 'hotter' the colour the more children have been admitted.
