Our aim is to provide the best possible education for each and every student by working in partnership to personalise this education to suit the needs and interests of our young people.  We want to create successful learners who enjoy learning, make progress and achieve; confident individuals who are able to lead safe and healthy lives and responsible citizens who make a positive contribution to society.  The school's vision of “Growing Brighter Futures for All” encapsulates the beliefs and values that underpin our work.  It is our belief that all our students have the potential for excellence.



We believe everyone has the right and the opportunity to achieve.  This requires high quality teaching, high levels of student engagement and high levels of parental support.  It also requires there to be a business like and purposeful learning atmosphere in the school where good behaviour allows teachers to teach and students to learn.  This is fundamental if student progress is to be outstanding. 



At Birches Head Academy partnership work is central to our philosophy in ensuring we can enhance learning. Through collaboration we strive to offer greater choice and diversity and provide the opportunity to enable all students to aspire and achieve as active community members. As a  co-operative with committed partners amongst our primaries, the Sixth Form, Staffordshire University as well as the PICL and the Local Authority we are proud of the opportunities we can offer to meet the interests, needs and aspirations of our students whether this is through our curriculum, extra-curricular or leadership programme.

The future of Birches Head Academy is exciting.
