Open Days

We hold Open Day events for each of the main entry points of the school. However, every day is an open day at Birkdale. If you wish to visit the school at any other time please do not hesitate to contact us and we will be happy to arrange a personal tour of the school. These all provide an excellent opportunity to see what life at Birkdale is really like.

Our next Open Days are as follows:

Prep School Open Morning 

Saturday 5 October 2019, 9.30am – 12noon

Senior School Open Morning

Saturday 19 October 2019, 9.30am onwards

There will be an opportunity for you to look around the school escorted by a Lower School pupil, to meet members of staff in the departmental areas and to talk with senior staff over coffee later in the morning.

Sixth Form Open Evening

Tuesday 12 November, 6.30pm

This is a packed information evening where you will find out everything you need to know about Birkdale Sixth Form. The format of the evening is as follows:

There is an Activities Fair where you can find out about the varied clubs, societies and extra-curricular activities available at Birkdale School, followed by an address at around 7.00pm by the Head of Sixth Form and her team. At 7.30pm you are invited to attend your choice of 4 subject talks to discover more about your chosen A levels. There is the opportunity at the end of the evening to talk to Senior Staff and Heads of Department over coffee.

The Sixth Form Open Evening is followed by an Induction week after GCSE’s where pupils are prepared for the following academic year.
