Working to support pupils and improve their learning achievements is the mission of Birmingham City Council's services for schools. They aim to ensure that children are offered opportunities to discover and develop their talents; achieve their full potential while in school, and prosper in the workplace. Birmingham schools make learning interesting and exciting. Many offer value-added services such as breakfast clubs and activities after school.
