“Birchwood is an 11-18 co-educational school with 1400 students on roll. We have come a long way over the last ten years and are very proud of our excellent school, where our students not only leave with strong academic qualifications, but also as well-rounded individuals with a sense of responsibility and a willingness to contribute to both the economy and society in general.”
Dr Chris Ingate Headteacher
Please note the new date for the Y7 Parents' Evening. It has been moved from 22 April to 29 April 2014.
We are looking for Staff and Students to engage in the development of an International Ambassador Programme.
Network Update - The network upgrade has been completed and all services, including Portico and Outlook are now available to use. Printers have been reinstalled and SIMS has been upgraded. You may now log on in school. When first logging onto SIMS please use the short cut from the School Admin Programme Menu. Testing of systems will be ongoing until 4 pm on Wednesday but this should not affect network access.
You may now read the feedback we have received at recent Parents' Evenings by following the link below.

Many thanks to the 500 parents who took the time to complete our Kirkland Rowell independent survey earlier this term. We have just received the report and it is very positive, with an 'excellent overall performance score' according to Kirkland Rowell. Over 93% of respondents stated that the school was good or very good (comparing to a national average figure of 72%). Student and staff feedback has also been excellent. Like all evaluation surveys, there are some areas we need to tighten up and I will share a more detailed summary in our Easter Birchwood News.
