Students at The Birkenhead Park School are celebrating outstanding GCSE results today.

We are incredibly proud of this year group: they have shown extraordinary courage and resilience in exceptional circumstances and the results they have achieved are reflection of the hard work they have all put in over the last five years. To celebrate their achievements and hard work, we were delighted to give them an ice cream from the visiting ice cream van!

In their five years at The Birkenhead Park School, our students have transformed into young adults with exciting futures ahead of them. Over 55 students are going to Birkenhead Sixth Form College where they will be studying new subjects such as Psychology and Law, as they continue to pursue their career ambitions to become doctors, scientists & website designers. Another group of students leave us to go to Wirral Met where they will be starting courses  such as Art, Finance and Public Services from September.

Behind the headlines, there are lots of individual student success stories.  Whilst Maths, English and Science results are outstanding, foreign languages continue to be a an area of high achievement for many students.  Twins Evie and Monica achieved fantastic grades in all their subjects and both secured high grades in not one but two languages.

Reflecting on their time at the school, Helen Johnson, Headteacher, said: “We are so proud of the Class of 2021 for all that they have achieved during their time with us. The grades they have achieved reflect their hard work and resilience in unprecedented circumstances. It has been a privilege to watch them grow into such wonderful young people and they go with our very best wishes for the future.”

Deputy Headteacher, Peter Mee, added: “They have been an outstanding year group and have taken the many challenges presented to them in their stride. They have certainly upheld the school’s values of Positivity, Ambition, Resilience and Thoughtfulness.

“I have no doubt that they will be successful in whatever they decide to do in the future.”

We wish all our year 11 students a very happy and successful future – it’s been a privilege to get to know you and please keep in touch.
