We just wanted to express our enormous gratitude to all of the Birkdale staff for the marvellous way that the home schooling has been rolled out and for the excellent standard you are offering under such unusual circumstances. Teachers are providing such fabulous input… From our point of view, you couldn’t be doing a better job and what you are providing is helping us to get along with our own work, in the knowledge that our child’s education is continuing effectively. We are so happy that we selected this school for X; he is too.

The remote online learning that you have provided for both children has been exceptional. It has really given the kids direction and good focus at this difficult time.
