Birchfield School is a preparatory and senior school for boys and girls aged 4 to 16. In a new and exciting development, the senior school recently extended its provision with the first ever Year 9 class due to join in September 2023 and sit a comprehensive 3 year GCSE programme.

The school's mission is to inspire and nurture every pupil in its care, exploring and expanding their individual potential, and to encourage them within a caring community to hold in the highest esteem mutual respect, kindness, aspiration and diligence. Birchfield pupils receive a truly rounded education and pupils move on with exemplary manners, social skills and a love of learning.

In November 2021, ISI inspectors, in judging the school 'Excellent' in all categories, noted that pupils 'make excellent progress' and 'achieve highly in all areas'. Referring to Birchfield as an 'extremely harmonious and happy community', the report concluded that 'from the earliest age, pupils are enthusiastic and ambitious learners, with a genuine desire to succeed.'

Birchfield School offers first class specialist teaching with small class sizes and offers a range of facilities including two IT suites, an outdoor Early Years classroom, a 6,000 title library, a Food Technology room and a much-loved Forest School.

With 20 acres of extensive playing fields, including three cricket squares and practice nets and a multi-purpose astro-turf sports arena, pupils are well served with superb facilities. Sport forms an important part of the curriculum with all pupils offered the opportunity to play in sports teams.

Art, Music and Drama also play a key role in the school with pupils taking part in art competitions, drama productions, as well as learning a musical instrument and performing regularly.

Birchfield is supported by Prepcare Nursery which operates on the school site and accepts children from 6 weeks old.
