Birdwood High School is situated in the northern Adelaide hills, just 43 km from the centre of Adelaide. The school has developed an excellent reputation for catering to the needs of all its students in a caring, collaborative and success-oriented environment.
Birdwood High School is a metropolitan school yet maintains strong connections with the country with many students attending from nearby rural communities. Transport is available from the city via Tea Tree Gully and school buses bring students from surrounding districts. Birdwood is home to the National Motor Museum, a major tourist attraction alongside events such as the Bay to Birdwood Vintage Car Rally.
The area is also home to a growing number of boutique wineries and gourmet food producers which provide the school with valuable partnerships and work experience opportunities for students.
