Welcome to Birchwood College
We are a specialist applied learning sixth form with truly outstanding results!
Our core purpose is to ensure students mature into fully rounded young adults. We know that as well as achieving academic excellence, our students need to develop character, resilience, an understanding of how the world works and how to apply their knowledge in the future. We have strong pastoral structures that provide personalised support and promote wellbeing. Our Careers, Information Advice and Guidance programme will ensure that planning for next steps is thorough and well-informed.
We pride ourselves on offering:
- a supportive, yet challenging, post sixteen learning experience, designed to suit the needs and aspirations of every student.
- an aspirational and friendly atmosphere which supports students to fulfil their true potential.
- dedicated subject specialists
- a purpose-built sixth form college with excellent facilities
- a range of programmes of study to suit different interests and career pathways, with opportunities for work placements
- extensive extra-curricular and enrichment opportunities to develop wider skills and confidence
Transport links to the college are excellent with regular bus and train services. As the only sixth form on the east side of Warrington and with an excellent reputation, we have become the college of choice for young people in the area. This is supported by an excellent Ofsted inspection in 2018 highlighting how every student at Birchwood College truly matters. We would love to be part of your academic journey, so get in touch and come and have a look round.
We look forward to meeting you.
