Birchwood Parents, Staff and Friends Association

Our aim is to bring together members of our school community who are keen to support with organised events, develop business links and raise money for the school.

Introducing the Birchwood Futures Foundation Fund

Make a donation using Virgin Money Giving

Please help us raise additional financial resources to enhance students’ educational experience whilst at Birchwood High School.
We are hoping to expand assistance to support resources the School does not currently receive dedicated government funding for. This fund has the potential to make an enormous difference for our Birchwood community. As an example, if we were to receive a contribution of £60 per child per year, this would raise over £80,000 annually which would directly benefit the students.
Contributions of £5 per month, the equivalent of two cups of coffee, would be greatly appreciated.
We hope you will consider supporting our new parent fund. Donations of any value are voluntary and collectively will make a huge difference for the school.

Woodland Fun Run

Woodland Fun Run

Last Sunday saw our first Woodland Fun Run which was a joint event organised by Birchwood PSFA and Summercroft PTA. The event included a 5K walk/run around Birchanger Woods and a 1K fun run around our running track for younger children with a themed treasure hunt. We also had bouncy castles, face painting and a variety of food and refreshment stalls. The event was open to all, including students and families from both Summercroft and Birchwood. Thank you to everybody who supported this event, we couldn’t have done it without our brilliant volunteer helpers and of course everyone who came along on Sunday morning to participate! We are also hugely grateful to Lednor estate agents for their help with marketing and to Waitrose for their donation of two hundred bananas.
We received some great feedback and are already starting on the planning for next year’s event. Our aim is to grow this event and have more involvement from Birchwood students and children from other local schools. If you have a company willing to help sponsor next year’s Woodland Run we would love to hear from you.
