In addition to our extensive curriculum offer, Birchwood College offers a wide variety of activities as part of our Enrichment 
Programme. This is designed to offer you additional activities, apart from your programmes of study, which will widen your experiences. This will help to support your applications for further education or employment by illustrating a broad base of interests.

Students select which activities they undertake, and attend these sessions in the designated periods within their timetables.

  • Duke of Edinburgh Bronze/Silver Award

The enrichment programme is designed to suit the needs of the students at Birchwood College. Further opportunities can be available depending on interest.
