Sixth Form

Each year after GCSEs, the natural progression for many of our students is to go on to study A Levels in Years 12 & 13 at Birkenhead Sixth Form College.

Situated in the heart of Claughton Village, just a stone’s throw from The Birkenhead Park School, the college specialises in teaching and support for 16-19-year-olds and more students choose to study there than any other Wirral sixth form.

Birkenhead Sixth Form College is part of Wirral Academy Trust along with The Birkenhead Park School, and the college is partnered with the school to provide the best possible education for students after GCSEs.
