Our school is located in Stoke, 8km from Nelson city. We are a decile 7 school and currently have a roll of around 250 students. Birchwood has 12 classroom spaces and a separate ‘rainbow room’ for lunchtime activities. Our school library is a welcoming space where you can snuggle with a book or play board games with your friends.
We have beautiful school grounds with lots of space for running around. There are many different playgrounds, including an obstacle course, netball and basketball courts, places to scooter, a junior and senior playground and a nature playground. We’ve recently added a school bike track too.
