A 3 Year Comprehensive GSCE programme
A Broad and Balanced Curriculum with State of the Art Facilities
We are delighted to be announcing an extension to our senior school for pupils aged 13 to 16, which will open its doors in September 2023 to our very first Year 9 cohort. Work is well underway on our site to begin transforming the main school house, Beamish House, into a dedicated building for our senior pupils. Beamish House will incorporate a separate entrance , state of the art classrooms and a modern learning environment with breakout rooms and study centres to maximise learning opportunities for all pupils.
Senior school pupils will undertake a three-year comprehensive programme of study leading to GCSE examinations in Year 11. Our intention is to operate a broad and balanced GCSE programme which provides for a wide choice of subjects for sixth form and beyond. Pupils will benefit from small class sizes to ensure that quality learning takes place and from the first-class all-round ecucational experience that Birchfield is known for, from sport to the arts to music.
With a particular emphasis upon the aquisition of skills in mathematics and the sciences, our already impressive facilities are being upgraded as part of this development with significant investments in science laboratories and the introduction of a botanical greenhouse. Similarly, our sporting facilities go from strength to strength with exciting innovations coming soon. Please follow us on social media for the latest updates.
