Mission, Vision and Values

At the Birley Academy we challenge each other and ourselves to always strive for more 

It is our aim to ensure that students are ready, respectful and resilient. We believe that instilling these values will help all to succeed in life. 

Our vision and our promise are the cornerstone of what we do here. 

We believe in cultivating a culture of respect, collaboration, and open-mindedness, where diversity is celebrated, and every voice is valued. At the Birley Academy, we strive to create a sense of belonging and foster positive relationships among pupils, staff, and parents.  

Our ethos is rooted in our commitment to providing a safe, nurturing, and stimulating environment where we know each other as individuals, and we value each other.  

At Birley, we:  

  • challenge each other and ourselves to always strive for more, every day.  
  • protect and support each other. 
  • inspire and guide each other. 
  • empathise and are compassionate with each other.  
  • all of this we do routinely. 

We expect our pupils to make the most of every opportunity – academia, sports, arts and develop a curiosity about the world and their place in it. As a school community, we acknowledge, celebrate and reward success, effort, compassion and understanding. 

By embracing this vision, ethos, and these values, the Birley Academy is dedicated to providing a transformative educational experience that prepares students not only for academic success but also for a life of purpose, responsibility, and fulfillment.
