Our School Governors
 
The Birkenhead Park School has a highly committed Local Governing Body all of whom have their own unique skills and area of expertise and who all share a common desire to provide the best possible education and opportunities for our students.
 
The Governors of our school are an advisory Local Governing Body and report directly to Wirral Academy Trust (WAT) who is the sole sponsor of The Birkenhead Park School. 
 
The Governors, with the exception of parent governors and staff governors are elected by Wirral Academy Trust and are purposefully selected to represent the key stakeholders within the Birkenhead community. 
 
The Local Governing Body works closely with the Senior Leadership Team to lead, manage and develop the school.
 
Members of the Local Governing Body form the Student Disciplinary Panel. 
 
To contact our Local Governing Body, please write to The Birkenhead Park School, Park Road South, Birkenhead, Wirral, CH43 4UY, or email offices@birkenheadparkschool.com
