Message from Head Teacher

Berwick Middle has an excellent reputation for helping young people to develop and working with them to achieve. We believe it is important to support children and ensure that they can play an active role in the school and the community. We aim to engender a sense of pride and aspiration in all students, wherever their talents may lie.


All of the staff have the best interests of the children at heart and are committed to doing their very best for them and keeping you informed about their progress and achievements. We have a very strong team of enthusiastic and experienced staff who deliver high quality lessons and many extra-curricular activities at lunchtimes and after school and who support children through the day to day school life. We aim to provide for the whole child and make learning a positive and enjoyable experience.


We actively encourage parents to play a part in school life and hope you will take every opportunity to become involved at whatever level you feel able; whether that is supporting your son/daughter with their homework, volunteering as a governor, becoming a member of the PTFA or assisting with school events as and when you can.


At Berwick Middle we try to ensure that everyone can;


Be involved

Make a difference

Strive to succeed

Changemaker Project

Dear Derryth,


I wish to congratulate Berwick Middle School on the fine work they are producing as part of the 'Changemaker project' that is contributing to the Council's heritage led regeneration scheme in Bridge Street.


The pupil's presentation at yesterdays' Heritage Day was a credit to the school and the young advocates should be very proud of their performance. Everyone present (that included dignitaries, English Heritage, the Heritage Lottery Fund, Councillor's and members of the Conservation Area Advisory Group) - about 50 people in the Town Hall - commented on how well the children presented their work.


The presentation was concise, clear and very informative about the range of work the school has been doing for the last 4 years.  The hand-outs were especially useful and the Q&A session at the end of the morning was handled with assurance, subject knowledge and extreme confidence. 


Please pass on the Conservation Area Advisory Group's appreciation and particular thanks to the pupils involved.  They are a credit to the school.


Kind regards,




Annette Reeves

Building Conservation Project Officer (Berwick Historic Area Improvement Schemes).
