We are immensely proud of Prep School pupil Noor, who recently (pre-lockdown) completed a 5k hike with The Special Forces Experience. She didn’t complain once despite driving wind and rain and to top it off she proudly wore her Birkdale sports gear! She demonstrated great resilience and achieved a medal for her efforts.

The hike was also a way of supporting her brother, Birkdale Senior School pupil Sal, who accompanied her. He is training to complete the 15 mile Fan Dance over Pen-y-Fan in Wales. He is raising money for his Royal Marine Cadet Detachment and the Special Boat Service Association. Well done both!
