Our last ISI integrated inspection detailed the many successes of Birchfield School:
‘The overall achievement of the pupils is excellent, because of their highly positive attitude to learning; they approach every task with great enthusiasm. They go on from Birchfield to a range of selective independent senior schools, often achieving scholarships’.
‘The quality of the provision in the EYFS is excellent. This is largely because all the adults have a comprehensive knowledge of how young children learn, and put their experience to good effect when planning for the learning, development and care of all in the class, and in carrying out these plans’.
‘The pupils’ personal development is excellent. Pupils often show maturity beyond their years in the way that they care for each other and look after any visitors. Relationships within the school are extremely positive, and all adults are excellent role models, providing a high standard of pastoral care for the pupils’.
‘Excellent leadership and management at all levels enable day-to-day school life to proceed calmly and efficiently. In their pre-inspection questionnaire, parents were highly supportive of all that the school does for their children, particularly appreciating the ease with which they may liaise with staff, the range of extra-curricular activities and the progress made by their children.’
