We will be forever indebted to Birkdale for guiding our son to achieving his potential and nurturing his intellectual curiosity. He has thoroughly enjoyed the opportunities to participate in a variety of clubs, trips, societies and sports. The excellent teachers have been the key driving force in his success and their advice has always been invaluable. His GCSE results were way beyond our expectations.

Mr & Dr Madan | Sixth Form Parents

Birkdale is able to bring out the best in each of our two boys with the ability to flexibly teach and engage with them as individuals. The school offers a rounded curriculum including traditional subjects (Maths, English, Science) complemented by a wide variety of sporting, music and drama activities. Both of our boys are flourishing in a number of areas - something I could not envisage in any other school.

World Book Day…Where’s Wally?!

Pre-Prep enjoyed a wonderful World Book Day, albeit a week late due to the snow last week. The children and staff looked brilliant all dressed up in stripes and the energy was high for a fun packed day. There was an exciting hunt for ‘Wally cards’ hidden all around Belmayne House.
