We can confirm that the University Academy Birkenhead will undergo a change in sponsorship arrangements. Since our inception at the start of 2011 we have been lucky to have a unique blend of sponsors that include the University of Chester, Birkenhead Sixth Form College, The University of Liverpool University, Wirral Metropolitan College and Wirral Council.
During this time we have transformed the educational success of our students and last year we improved GCSE attainment by a third, and bucked the national trend at a time when a school is likely to consider itself doing well if it maintains its results.  We have also secured significantmassive improvements in our attendance and punctuality as well as becoming the first Wirral school to sign a partnership with a high performing school in China.
The Governors have overseen this programme of improvement and have decided that in order to offer the school the best chance of continuing this progression a new structure of governance would be beneficial.
