Welcome to
Byrchall High School


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.

In order to comply with the advice of Wigan Council, we introduced face masks in communal areas from Wednesday November 3rd. Read more here in Byrchall's latest letter from the Headteacher to parents and carers.

A link to a letter from Education Secretary to parents and carers:

  • The Secretary of State for Education, Nadhim Zahawi, has written an open letter to parents, carers and guardians about the importance of children aged 12 to 15 getting their COVID-19 vaccine either at school, or at a local vaccination centre. The letter also reminds parents about the importance of testing. Read it here.
