Headteacher’s Welcome

Welcome and thank you for showing an interest in The Birley Academy.

The Birley Academy is a popular secondary school situated in the south east of Sheffield. We have a modern building set on a pleasant campus and enjoy excellent facilities. As part of the highly successful L.E.A.D. Academy Trust, we embody four core principles; strong leadership at every level; empowering every pupil to aim high; giving every pupil  the opportunity to achieve and constantly driving for improvement. At The Birley Academy, this is at the heart of everything we do.

Our vision at Birley is clear: to ensure that we constantly challenge ourselves and our pupils to aspire to our very best, enjoying learning and being active members of the academy. We expect the highest standards of behaviour, respect and tolerance for others. In addition, every pupil expected to work hard to make the best of everything that the academy has to offer through our curriculum and our enrichment activities.

By providing a supportive, caring and aspirational environment, we enable our pupils to thrive and flourish into resilient, successful and compassionate citizens equipped to make a valuable contribution to society and the move on to higher education, further training and their future careers. Staff work tirelessly to ensure that learning is relevant, purposeful, engaging and rewarding because we believe that every pupil is capable of fantastic achievements.
