Birches Head is proud of its wide ranging curriculum and its culture built on traditional values and aspiring to be more.

We seek to provide the highest quality teaching and expect the highest standards of work and behaviour. All students agree aspirational targets which will challenge them to unlock their potential. Meticulous and regular monitoring of progress encourages and assists students in meeting these challenges and keeps parents engaged in the all-important combination of home and school support.

Our school has a broad and balanced curriculum which is diverse and motivational and continually evolving to meet the needs of a dynamic society.
