Teachers at five schools in Tamworth, Staffordshire, are set to strike on Wednesday of this week.
The teachers at Belgrave High School, Queen Elizabeth Mercian School, Rawlett Community Sports College, Wilnecote High School and Woodhouse School are in dispute over a proposed academy in the town, which they say would pose a threat to existing schools in the area.
NUT union members will be on strike in all of the schools while NASUWT members will join them in four.
