Birches Head Academy Celebrates exam successes

Staff, students and Governors at Birches Head Academy, are extremely proud of the achievements of our Year Eleven students and are today celebrating some strong improvements. 48% of students have achieved a Grade 4 pass in both Mathematics and English, a key indicator of a school’s performance. Over a quarter of students achieved a Grade 5 in both subjects, defined by the Government as a ‘strong pass’. Both results are a considerable improvements on last year’s figures.

Under the new challenging grading system, other outstanding performances saw 100% of students passing Sport and Triple Science Physics and very high pass rates in Business Studies (89%) and Art (87%) amongst others.

We are immensely proud of the achievements of our students and we are sure they will continue to embody our motto of ‘Aspire to be More’ as they embark onto the next stage of their education.

Birches Head Academy will be joining the new national scheme for issuing free school meal e-gift cards whilst we are closed. For those who qualify, we will contact you and send your e-gift card by e-mail or we may ask you to collect from school as part of your daily exercise. This will commence next week as we see it as vital that we continue to support you over the Easter break. Vouchers will continue each week to the value of £15 per child.

We wish you a happy Easter.


The main office is closed from Friday 3rd April at 3pm until Monday 20th April at 8am. During the Easter period, we will be regularly monitoring emails but there will be a delay in dealing with any requests.

If you are having difficulty with the Free School Meal voucher code, we will forward your query and it will be dealt with as soon as possible. We apologise for any inconvenience whilst we navigate this new system.

In accordance with Government guidance, the Academy will be open to the children of Key Workers only over the Easter period. Spaces allocated by request.
