BIRCHWOOD Community High School has been undergoing a major transformation during lockdown to provide a “fantastic learning environment.”
Over the last number of week’s since school closed to learners a team of staff and contractors have been working hard to transform the school, which also recently unveiled a huge mural depicting the history of the town and some famous former pupils.
Josie Evans Communication & Events Manager said: Along with our rebrand, the first thing you will see is a new frontage to school which has been created with some very cleaver window wraps. These wraps also adorn our English rooms to cut out glare and really improve the look of the exterior.
“We have taken birchwood blue and silver grey back into Birchwood to create a sophisticated feel to our corridors and classrooms with some amazing pieces of learning wall art which will really complement our curriculum.
“So far, we are nearly there with our main English corridor and classrooms with a huge timeline of authors in the corridor complemented by more detailed timelines within classrooms, plus recommendations of reading for pleasure books for learners to try.
“Our languages department love a good fiesta, so they have a gigantic bright and fun wall to echo this.
“Maths, which has moved upstairs in our main block has great displays on famous mathematicians, useful equations and a wall which will answer that old question ‘ Why do I need my maths’ and shows the wide and varied jobs that you can get with a good maths qualification!
“Still to go are redecorating and a huge piece of work in our new computing, IT and business suite.
“We hope you like our new look and we can’t wait for our students to return to see the newly improved BCHS in real life.”
