Our College Ethos

Our aim is to provide a quality learning experience in a college which has great facilities and a really friendly atmosphere. One of the reasons our students choose to study here is because of the positive relationship between staff and students.

Feedback from our students indicates strongly that they feel valued as individuals and that we do our very best to ensure that learning is tailored to individuals, so that they can achieve the very best on their chosen learning pathway.

Management Board

We believe that the voice of every student at Birchwood College is extremely important. The Birchwood College Management Board is currently made up of students who, as a body, represent the views of all the students in the college. Because our college is still fairly new, the Management Board have been able to be involved in decision making processes from the beginning, which means that our learning environment is very positive and reflects the sort of ethos that our students feel is important.

Our Facilities

Birchwood College is an excellent place to study with new and up to date facilities being added all the time. Last year our new state of the art Science Laboratory opened and this year we added a new dedicated Media and IT suite to coincide with the launch of our new A Level Media course.

In September 2012, in partnership with Warrington Wolves, we opened our own dedicated Sports Laboratory in the College, specifically designed to meet the needs of those studying BTEC Sport and A Level PE.

We have also vastly increased the number of computer work stations around the college, which gives students more opportunities for independent study.

  • 2,000 sq metre building accommodating up to 200 students

  • 4 meeting/seminar/tutorial rooms
