Head of Prep School Welcome

Welcome to Birkdale Prep School, where pupils, staff and parents work together to reach the highest academic standards within a broad and enriched curriculum. The friendly, family atmosphere enables Birkdale pupils to be happy, confident and successful as they take advantage of the fantastic opportunities available to them.

Birkdale is a school where your child can reach their full potential. We are committed to giving children a secure environment in which to thrive, recognising that each child 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 everyone in our care. Birkdale has a huge expertise in teaching and the way in which children 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 pupils as individuals aiming to embed the confidence, self-reliance and resilience needed for success in a rapidly changing world.

Please visit us to see the school in action. I would be delighted to show you how your child will receive an exceptional rounded education providing individual academic attainment balanced with numerous confidence and character building experiences. Please attend one of our Open Mornings or alternatively book a private tour of the school. I look forward to meeting you and your family.

Chris Burch – Head of Birkdale Prep School


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.

Dr & Mrs Firth

Birkdale Prep is immediately welcoming, it has a warm and nurturing environment, as well as high academic goals. We have three boys at the school who have quickly settled in, they love going in each morning. The teachers at each stage are experts in their fields, and easily cater for the boys growing and developing needs. We (and they) are very happy with the school.

Mr & Mrs Carr

My son started PP1 in September and has settled in so well; he runs into school every morning, very excited to see his teachers and his new friends. I have noticed such a difference in him in the short time he has been with you, he’s much more grown up, better behaved and has learned so much already. I run a nursery so know how hard it is to provide an outstanding setting and in my opinion you are doing just that!
