Byrchall High School


Welcome to
Byrchall High School




The government announced recently that Byrchall High School is one of the 50 schools that are part of the School Rebuilding Project.


Our school will be on the earlier part of the programme and we will release more details soon. The majority of the school will be New Build and we look forward to a top quality environment and facilities.


This is fantastic news for our students, teachers and the community. We are all very excited.

Read more here about this superb news.


Byrchall High School is a modern, forward looking school, rich in traditional values. Ours is a school where high standards of attainment and behaviour are expected from every student; each individual matters and everyone has something special to contribute.

We encourage every student to achieve high standards and to develop an enthusiastic, problem-solving approach to their work so that they feel confident with their academic and social skills, inside and outside school. We strive to ensure that all children reach their potential.
