RAF Cosford / Armed Forces



    Birchfield School is proud of its relationship with RAF Cosford.  As we are almost neighbours (the base is only a few minutes away from Birchfield) our links have gone from strength to strength in recent years.
    Having had many service children through the doors over the years we are used to dealing with the unique family life which a career in the services can sometimes present.  We are here, not only to educate and enrich your child, but provide the emotional and pastoral support needed when life is starting afresh in a new area, or when overseas postings mean a family may be temporarily separated.  We can help put you in touch with new friends, or give helpful advice on the local area.


    The journey can begin in Birchfield Prepcare Nursery (managed by Prepcare LLP), which is located on the Birchfield site, and takes children aged from six weeks to four years old. Birchfield itself welcomes children from age four and offers small class sizes, beautiful rural surroundings, strong academic ethos, acclaimed sporting successes and a fine musical reputation. 

    Senior Schools

    We offer bespoke advice on senior schools, working with you and your child to decide which school is best for your family after Birchfield.  We have no allegiance to any one particular senior school, meaning the opportunities are endless.  We have an excellent reputation for getting pupils into their first choice senior school at 11+ and 13+  and an enviable record of pupils leaving with prestigious awards and scholarships.

    Fee Remission

    To reflect this bond Birchfield provides Cosford service personnel with a remission of fees.  This means Birchfield’s excellent and enviable standard of education is now available to more RAF Cosford parents.  To find out more about the fee remission, please contact the School Office on 01902 372534 who will be delighted to help.
    We are proud of our relationship with RAF Cosford and would be delighted to show you how we can work together for your child’s educational journey.
