Values and Ethos


Challenge . Achieve . Celebrate

Birkett House is a school at the heart of its community. We aspire for all our pupils to work in an environment that encourages lifelong learning, equipping pupils with the tools and skills to achieve. We will work to encourage pupils to develop confidence, self-belief and be aware of the choices open to them. We will encourage tolerance and inclusion, where all pupils are able to build effective relationships based on strength of community, friendship and respect. In short, we expect the students of Birkett House to be both aspirational and inspirational.


Through positive experiences, we will develop as fully as possible our abilities and interests and be proud of ourselves and our achievements.

We will work in partnership preparing for life in and beyond school where we are able to contribute to our own futures and take our place in society.

We will develop the skills we will need for a successful future.

We will respect ourselves and others in an environment where we are confident, secure and happy.

We will develop the skills we need to meet real life challenges.
