We also run the pre-loved uniform shop Tuesdays 8.30-9.30am and Fridays 3-5pm.

The Friends is an energetic and enthusiastic team of parents who give their time to raise funds to buy the ‘extras’ and implement new projects that we need at school, to help keep us one step ahead.  Often there are ten of us at any one time and we are predominantly from one year group, so we would be delighted if you would like to come on board and join us! 

Don’t forget you can support us every time you shop, for free, no catch to you at all! Just online shop through the Giving Machine and nominate Birchfield School, retailer’s commissions pop straight into our pot!

If you have any event feedback or things you would like to see in school please do let us know by emailing 

Together we are working to support a diverse and dynamic learning environment for our children
