Our School

Byrchall High School, located on an extensive greenfield site, provides education for boys and girls of all abilities aged 11-16. The school specialises in Mathematics and Computing, has Leading Edge status and a continued commitment to leading teacher development and training.

There are two Trusts attached to the school. Foundation trustees, who are represented on the governing body, uphold and promote the founding values of the school. They also administer private funds at the school's disposal for the benefit of past and present students, which gives the school a small but valuable measure of independence. The Makerfield Community Trust comprises three organisations: Edge Hill University, The Anglican Diocese of Liverpool and ABTEC Computers. We enjoy a close relationship with these partners who support us in achieving our vision and specialist aims.

Our committed and industrious teachers are integral in the pursuit of our aims; they are dedicated to developing and implementing the best possible teaching and learning practices to not only maximise every student's progress but to make learning engaging and exciting. Just as all students are different, so are all teachers. All are driven by a passion for education but each brings their own special interests, experiences and skills. Our staff believe that it is the variety and innovation at Byrchall High School that makes their jobs so fulfilling and rewarding.

Byrchall's broad and balanced curriculum, wider enrichment opportunities and clear focus on new technology place it at the forefront of secondary schooling in the North West region.
