At Birches Head Academy we provide every child with an education which will empower them with the skills, knowledge and understanding they will need to prosper in modern society.
We understand that learning happens in many different ways, and our students are given the best possible opportunities to enjoy learning that will develop them as individuals beyond their academic study.
We place enormous value on extended learning and provide a rich and varied range of opportunities through both academic study and enrichment activities.
Our staff believe passionately that learning outside the classroom is a crucial means of fostering talent, skills and abilities, and it gives students a sense of achievement. Activities such as the Duke of Edinburgh Award, dramatic productions and residential experiences help students to become well-rounded members of the community by building their resilience and confidence. We encourage participation in sport for all; our main sports are football, cricket, netball and rounders. Music, drama, art and photography are central to our curriculum and to the extra-curricular life of the school, with performances taking place on site and across the community.
