Introduction to the Birchwood Federation

From Mrs T Bowman, Executive Head Teacher
and Mr B Main, Chair of Governors

Welcome to the Birchwood Federation Website. We are three schools working together in the Birchwood Community sharing expertise, experience and resources with the aim of providing a first class education for our children. At the same time as working collaboratively, we also retain the advantages of being individual and friendly.

We work closely together and share our Governing Body and some key members of staff including our Executive Headteacher.

Please take the time to have a look at our three individual websites which give more information about each school.
