Subject Vision

‘Birchensale Middle School lies at the heart of the community. Our caring family values ensure the best possible environment for every pupil to realise their full potential’

Our curriculum is designed to support and challenge each individual pupil, along every step of their educational journey. Its rich and vibrant design opens young minds to a wealth of new experiences, whilst guiding and supporting them as they explore new horizons. At Birchensale, we celebrate success and build resilience, ensuring children leave us with a ‘can do’ attitude.
Our curriculum is mapped out carefully, both inside and outside the classroom, to maximise the development of all aspects of pupils’ lives. Our aim is to develop the essential knowledge, skills and understanding, which are the fundamental building blocks for success in the future. Our curriculum creates a hunger for new experiences, feeding our pupils’ minds with a passion for reading, whilst nurturing their growth into confident, enthusiastic and independent young adults. Young adults who are well equipped to meet the changing challenges of the future.
