Welcome

At Birchensale, we welcome students from several feeder first schools from around Redditch. In Year Five, our aim is to develop students’ independence as they settle into the new routines and expectations of middle school. We encourage our learners to progress into resilient individuals, who approach every opportunity – which they are exposed to at Birchensale – with positivity and determination. With the learning experiences which we provide, we expect the children to grow in confidence in their first year with us, setting them up for a successful journey through middle school.
