Birches Head Academy



Students at Birches Head Academy benefit from modern learning spaces designed to help them succeed.

Classrooms are equipped with state-of-the-art technology to enable all students to meet the demands of the curriculum. The purpose-built science block ensures that the study of theory is complemented by live demonstrations and experiments, while our outdoor sports facilities give students the chance to take part in a wealth of different activities.

The student experience is further enriched by opportunities to take on various roles and responsibilities which allow our young people to build confidence and develop their leadership skills. Examples range from the prefect system and Head Boy/Girl roles, to the Duke of Edinburgh’s Award and peer-mentoring schemes.
