Birdswood Secondary School currently has around 620 learners from a variety of backgrounds and we feel that this diversity is the key to our success in our academic endeavours. We are proud to say that approximately 70% of our learners go on to study at tertiary institutions when they leave Matric. Another key factor in ensuring our academic success is that we are able to maintain manageable class sizes which provides learners with a more relaxed learning environment and allows them the opportunity to connect one on one with any one of our highly qualified educators, who go above and beyond by offering extra lessons for the learners to attend in the afternoons, evenings and on weekends. These extra lessons are also available during the July and October school holidays (Winter and Summer school respectively)

Principal's Message

We are in the Leage of our own, competing with No One but Us. We set out targets and work diligently to achieve them. We always strive to achieve what we can imagine, i.e. Power of imagination.

I give out my Appreciation to BSS SMT, All Educators and Non-teaching Staff for their dedication and selfless service to the school and community at large.

My special Thank you goes to my SGB for their 100% support to the school. I know you wanted 100% Pass rate from our Matriculants But please find it in your hearts to accept the 88% that we achieved given all our efforts.

Our Circuit Manager and Our District are always there when we need guidance and support, Thank you for being pillars of our strengths. 

To all my Matriculants (the class of 2023) I thank you profoundly for being such a well-rounded Characters who survived all tests of time and ultimately gave us excellent results.
