Proud to be part of the Mast Academy Trust

Our School

We are delighted that you have taken the time to have a look at our website and to find out about our school.

Birdsedge is a small, rural school on the outskirts of Huddersfield. The school is set in a beautiful location, surrounded by the rolling hills and woodland scenery of the Upper Dearne Valley. We are located in the village of Birdsedge and we are an active part of the local community, with strong links with local Church and other Community groups.

About our School

We want give our children Brilliance in their knowledge through a broad and balanced curriculum.

We aim to provide Excellence in every child’s education by making sure lessons are consistent and use strong and high quality teaching. 

Through both of these aspects we hope that children will enjoy ‘learning to learn’ through developing basic skills, knowledge, concepts and values through discreet subjects. We also hope children develop curiosity, enquiry, resilience and an openness to new ideas. 

We want all children to be Successful in their wider lives both now and in the future due to the knowledge, skills and experiences we give them. 

Ultimately, we want all of this to happen in a safe, positive and inclusive school culture where every child feels safe and happy through the Trust we have in each other. 

The Mast Trust

At The Mast we want staff to feel happy and to achieve their ambitions; to inspire our children to learn and grow; to collaborate for the good of all our children and staff.  We very much value our employees, we celebrate their individuality and invest in them, recognising that we are a team that achieves together.
