Back to School at BCHS

Getting ready for a brand new school year! 


The Staff at Barrhead Composite High School (BCHS) is pleased to welcome you to the 2017-18 school year. We are looking forward to seeing new and returning students. We’ve prepared this quick guide to help you get ready to come back to school!

All back to school information is available on the PHPS division website.


The first day of school is August 30.


When can you register? 
Our school office will be open on August 24 and 25 for registration. Our office hours on these days are 8:30am-4:00pm.
Our office team looks forward to welcoming you and answering your questions. Registration forms are available on this website by going to the Info menu above and clicking on Registration (or click here).


School supply lists

School fees 2017-18
We no longer collect instructional materials fees, as these items are now paid by the provincial government.  During the school year, you may find that there are fees to cover things like field trip costs and school team or club costs.  We have options to help those who cannot afford these fees.  Please contact the school office for details (780-674-8522).

We collect fees for renting band instruments.  Our band fees are as follows:

  • Grade 7 Band - $66.50
  • Grade 8-12 Band - $94.50
  • Percussion (all grades) - $66.50
  • Maximum fees for a Family - $120
