Welcome to Birch Wood School

Welcome to our website!

We hope you find it informative and easy to use. If not please let us know and we will do our best to adapt it to the best of our ability.

Birch Wood (Melton Area Special School) was the first Leicestershire Area Special School to be opened in 2004. We are a popular school with a rising role of currently 142 students aged 4-19 years. There is a high demand for places and we work closely within the local community and other education providers.

The school is divided into two sites, Main Site is located on Grange Drive and holds Lower and Upper School departments. You can read about the curriculum of these departments in the 'About us' section.

BW2 site is located off Burton Road and is adjoined to the main site by means of a walkway, away from the main road. Once again, you can read more about the curriculum of this department (including the post 16 Center) in the 'About us' section.

We hope you enjoy looking round our site, if you require any additional information please download our prospectus or contact the school.


We are currently making some changes to improve our website and things may look a little different.
