Parents

I am delighted and very proud to welcome you to The Birkenhead Park School.

Our aim as a school is to achieve “Ambition and Excellence for All” and we are committed to providing the best possible education for every student.

Many of you may already be very familiar with our school due to our close links with local primary schools. We are proud of the excellent support that we offer to make the transition from primary to secondary school smooth and successful for every child. Our youngest students make a flying start to Year 7 through a tailored programme of transition events and activities, a dedicated team of expert staff and our very successful Year 7 Base. We are delighted that 92% of parents say that they would recommend The Birkenhead Park School.

We see every child as a unique individual; we recognise the potential in all our students, irrespective of their starting point, and believe that every child can and will succeed. We challenge and support students to achieve the very best possible academic outcomes, focusing on the importance of hard work, practice and perseverance in the pursuit of success. Our school values of Positivity, Ambition, Resilience and Thoughtfulness underpin every aspect of school life.

We believe it is vital that children feel happy and confident in school and enjoy their learning experience. Our dedicated pastoral team of teaching and support staff offers outstanding support and care, ensuring that children are ‘ready to learn’ and be successful every day. We have the highest expectations of our students and they wear their uniform with pride.

Our broad and varied curriculum, which places strong emphasis on developing knowledge and skills in the core subjects of English, Maths and Science, is forward thinking and equips students well for the next stage in their career or education. We are just as proud of the wide-ranging activities and opportunities available to students beyond the curriculum, from sports clubs to visits and trips at home and abroad. As a school within Wirral Academy Trust, we are delighted that our students have access to outstanding post- 16 provision at Birkenhead Sixth Form College.

I would be delighted to show you around our school and I look forward to welcoming you soon.
