“Aspire greatly; anything less than a commitment to excellence becomes an acceptance of mediocrity”

It is a privilege to be the Headteacher at Frederick Bird Academy, where the children are enthusiastic and motivated to achieve endless possibilities.

Frederick Bird Academy is a proud member of the Inspire Education Trust, a ‘family’ of like-minded schools, which collaborate to provide mutual support, share good practice and learn from each other whilst retaining their own distinctive character.

We are a large primary school of just over 800 children serving the Hillfields area of Coventry. Our team of dedicated, hardworking and skilled staff are committed to ensuring that our children achieve excellence and enjoyment in all that they do. In promoting a culture of aspiration and achievement, we aim to provide a high-quality education that prepares our children for their next step and beyond, as well as equip them to meet the challenges of a changing society.

Our vibrant community is celebrated and reflected in our curriculum offer which provides children with a wide range of memorable experiences and values their individuality and heritage. All children regardless of disability, race religion, belief or gender are encouraged to reach their full potential, uphold British values and embrace the rich cultural diversity of our community.

We are a truly inclusive school and expect the highest standards of learning, behaviour and attendance from our children. Through our partnerships with parents, we aim for all children to be the best learners they can be.

Through our website, we aim to give an insight into our school and a glimpse of our values, our curriculum and our community. We hope that you will find this information a useful starting point.

Please feel welcome to pop in and see Frederick Bird in action.
