Where are We?

How to find us....

The Birches School is located close to the Withington Community Hospital in West Didsbury, Manchester. The area benefits from excellent road & public transport links to the city centre and the airport. A short walk from either Burton Road or Wilmslow Road/Palatine Road which are served by busy bus routes, with services at least every 5 minutes and a regular night bus.
