Head Master Dr Paul Owen said “I am delighted that Birkdale pupils have once again received excellent GCSE results. My congratulations go to all of them. A* and A grades are an indicator of a school’s success, but I also relish in those results where pupils have achieved their personal best and fulfilled their own potential. We look forward to welcoming the vast majority back to our Sixth Form where they will continue their studies.”
