Leave or Remain?

Polling booths will be open throughout the day as Birkdale hosts its very own Mock EU Referendum. Campaigning has been intense in recent days as both Remain and Leave camps work hard to make their EU case for pupil support.
Mr Mike Clarke, Head of History, commented: "Some of our oldest pupils here at Birkdale will be casting their vote in the EU referendum today for the very first time. We wanted to extend this important democratic franchise to all our senior school pupils and so today here at school every pupil will have a chance to express a view on the EU by way of our Mock EU referendum. Regardless of your view about the EU it is important to make your vote count and as such I am very pleased to know that Birkdale School will be supporting the Country's big referendum decision day in this way.
