Birchfield Independent Girls’ School is an independent secondary school that provides Islamic education for girls in Birmingham. The school opened in 1998 and is housed in a building that was formerly a jobcentre. The school employs 28 staff on a full- and part-time basis. The school was inspected by the Independent Schools Inspectorate in March 2012. Ofsted Inspection report: Birchfield Independent Girls’ School, 13–15 March and 19 April 2018 Page 9 of 12 undertook an emergency inspection in 2008 and a subsequent monitoring visit in the same year. The school does not make use of alternative providers. However, pupils use PE facilities at the Lighthouse Centre in Newtown and King Edward’s School. The aims of the school state: ‘We strive for academic excellence while treating children as individuals. We encourage children to develop their own talents and personality, and we value diversity in our school community.’ The school is registered for 152 pupils aged 11 to 17 years. There are currently 117 pupils on roll. Pupils who attend the school beyond the age of 16 do so because they have missed earlier years of their education. They are able to make up learning they have missed through individualised timetables and by learning alongside Year 11 pupils where appropriate. This gives students extra time to take GCSEs, if required. Pupils study a range of subjects including English, mathematics, science, art, Islamic studies, information and communication technology, Arabic, PE and history.
Due to number of reforms to GSCE reporting introduced by the government in 2014, such as the exclusion of iGCSE examination results, the official school performance data may not accurately report a school’s full results. For more information, please see About and refer to the section, ‘Why does a school show 0% on its GSCE data dial? In many affected cases, the Average Point Score will also display LOW SCORE as points for iGCSEs and resits are not included.
