Welcome to

The Birley Academy

The Birley Academy is a popular secondary academy in the southeast of Sheffield. We have a modern building set on a pleasant campus with excellent facilities.  We believe that our students are entitled to nothing but the best.  

By instilling our values of ready, respectful and resilient, we aim to prepare students to succeed in life, both academically and socially.  We challenge ourselves and our students to aspire to be the very best they can, enjoying learning and being active members of the learning community.

I am very proud to be the Headteacher of The Birley Academy and feel honoured and privileged to be able to work with our pupils, parents, carers, colleagues and community to be a part of the team who are making Birley Academy a brilliant place to learn and work. 

I am passionate about working with our staff in school, and with colleagues across L.E.A.D. Academy Trust to ensure that the education that we provide to our pupils is of the highest quality, studying a broad range of subjects complemented by a clear personal development and wider curriculum offer.

I don’t have a complicated view of what makes a brilliant school and I aim to keep things simple. At Birley, I will ensure that we keep focussed on maintaining a calm and orderly environment, having expectations of exceptional attendance, delivering the highest academic standards and encouraging every student to fulfil their potential in whichever areas their talents and interests may lie. Our pupils are brilliant young people and they deserve every opportunity to nurture and showcase their skills. 

Most importantly, as a parent myself, I recognise the huge responsibility that schools have to provide for the young people in our care and will do all that I can to make sure that every single pupil at The Birley Academy continues to be valued and cherished as an individual, and feels safe and supported in our school. 

I look forward to sharing positive news with you on a regular basis and making The Birley Academy the school of choice in our region of Sheffield. I will share regular updates on our website, social media, and through Headteacher bulletins, and I look forward to meeting our parents, carers and the wider community at parents’ evenings and celebrations, performances and sporting events.

I do hope that the website gives you an insight into our school, and warmly invite visitors to our website to get in touch with us should you require any further information or would like to arrange a visit to our very wonderful school to see how we are #makingBirleybrilliant! 

Yours truly,

Mrs Victoria Hall
