Birches Head Academy has a dedicated Primary Enrichment Programme. This involves staff from a range of subject areas visiting local primary schools, or inviting schools in to work with us on a range of projects, workshops and bespoke lessons.
This year’s programme includes classes in Art, Music and Science, masterclasses in Maths and English, and ceramics in partnership with Emma Bridgewater, including a factory tour. Year 6 students who gain a place at our school attend 3 Transition Days in summer term to prepare them for secondary school life, and will also receive a visit in their primary school from our Transition Co-ordinator or a member of the year 7 team.
At the start of each new academic year in September, new year 7 students have their own dedicated induction day to help them feel comfortable and confident about embarking on their secondary education with us.
For more information, please contact Mr Lambert, Transition Co-ordinator.
