Extended Care

Birkdale recognises the needs of busy working parents by offering flexible and friendly before and after school care to our pupils.

Breakfast Club

This service is available for boys to use on an occasional or regular basis. Boys in our Pre-Prep and Prep departments can enjoy a healthy breakfast from 7.45am provided by the school’s catering staff. Boys will be carefully supervised until the school day begins. Breakfast Club is managed and supervised by members of Birkdale staff. A charge of £2.50 per day is added to the end of term bill.

After School Care

At the Prep School there is an After School Care service for families who may need to make use of it on an occasional or on a regular basis. The service is available from the end of the school day until 6pm. It is managed and supervised daily by a member of the school teaching staff with the help of teaching assistants. Boys are served a light tea provided by the school’s catering staff and are then offered a range of varied and stimulating games and activities within a safe and carefully monitored environment. All activities are conducted within a relaxed and informal atmosphere and outdoor play is encouraged during the summer months.
