At the start of the 2009/2010 school year, the school was taken over by new head Mr. Wood. He is also the head of the primary school. By 2011, the school was run by Mrs. Woodcock. By late 2012, Birley Community College was being run by Mr. Robinson acting as the head teacher.

In the 2010 Ofsted school inspection, the school achieved an overall 'Good'.
