Birley Learning Community
The latest Adult Learning programme is available on the Community page or by following this link 2014/15 Adult Learning ProgrammeThe Birley Learning Community (BLC) consists of two schools sharing a single campus, situated around a large playing field within a residential area in south east Sheffield. We have nearly 2000 children and young people within our community and over 250 staff who care for, support and educate them. Within the nursery element of our Primary we offer childcare and provide Children’s Centre facilities. Within our College we also have an Integrated Resource for young people with Autistic Spectrum Disorders. Across the area we support and run a wide variety of adult learning programmes, with learners up to the age of 84.
The BLC is also a Leadership and Innovation Hub, originally co-funded by the SSAT and Sheffield City Council. We have developed a reputation and wide experience in working “by schools, for schools” to commission and deliver a range of leadership and learning opportunities within the Sheffield region ( Sheffield Learning Hub Website ) and this remains an important part of our work.
This is an exciting innovative place to be, with its community at its heart and focussed on learning in all its forms. We have children on site from 6 months old to learners of 84, and we have a wide range of experience in providing for all our learners. Our two schools are Birley Community Primary School and Birley Community College. You can read more about them by following the links.
