Welcome to Birkdale Prep School, where boys, staff and parents work together to reach the highest academic standards within a broad and enriched curriculum. The friendly, family atmosphere enables Birkdale boys to be happy, confident and successful as they take advantage of the fantastic opportunities available to them.
Birkdale is a school where boys can reach their full potential. We are committed to giving boys a secure environment in which to thrive, recognising that each boy is unique and helping each individual to be the best that they can be. In our efforts to do this it is our Christian ethos that underpins all that we seek to be and to do.
It is a great privilege to have the responsibility of helping to shape the lives of the boys in our care. Birkdale has a huge expertise in teaching boys and the way in which they learn best whilst also subscribing to those timeless values that embrace good manners, courtesy, self-respect, respect for others and a sense of duty and responsibility. Our talented and experienced staff treat the boys as individuals aiming to embed the confidence, self-reliance and resilience needed for success in a rapidly changing world.
Please arrange a visit to see the school in action. I would be delighted to show you how your son will receive an exceptional all-round education providing individual academic attainment balanced with numerous confidence and character building experiences. I look forward to meeting you and your family.
Birkdale Prep School has provided our boys with an ideal learning environment in which their confidence and determination to achieve, academically and in a wide range of activities and pursuits outside the classroom, has been fostered, supported and tirelessly encouraged.
Birkdale Prep is immediately welcoming, it has a warm and nurturing environment, as well as high academic goals.
