The CSI event involved the Year 6 children collating scientific evidence such as fingerprints, footprints, blood and fibres, and testing them to find out which suspect committed the crime.

One child from Bidston Avenue Primary School said: “The staff made us very welcome and it was great to use the science equipment that we don’t have access to.”

Another child from Christ Church Primary School said: “The best thing about The Birkenhead Park School is everything and the canteen is amazing.”

Five schools have enjoyed the event so far with pupils from Christ Church Primary, Cathcart Primary, Portland Primary, The Priory Primary and Bidston Avenue Primary all taking part.

Head of Year 7 Mrs Kirwan said: “The events have been a great success and are just another fun way for us to engage with younger pupils and ease the transition from primary school to secondary school. I think we may have some scientists in the making from some of the work we have seen.”

At the end of the tasks all the children came together to solve the crime in a short assembly and met Headteacher, Helen Johnson.

Mrs Johnson said: “It is always wonderful to welcome so many primary school children into our school and it gives them a really good opportunity to meet staff and students and get used to the change in environment. Moving to secondary school can be a very daunting experience and we do all we can to make the transition as smooth as possible and make sure they have a lot of fun!”
