Making the Most of It
It is our aim to provide students with a broad and well-rounded education that prepares them not only for academic and career success but also to live life to the full as a confident and independent adult.
Our wide range of Extra Curricular activities are vital for developing character, for encouraging teamwork, leadership, self-reliance and preparing our students to be active citizens. There are many Sixth Form clubs and societies to enjoy, or help lead, in addition to all the opportunities through sport, music and drama. There are music groups to suit most tastes and an equally wide range of sporting activities.
An U6 student who recently left Birkdale describes his experience below:
“I’ve been at Birkdale for seven years, having moved here in S1 (Y7), and my experience has been great. The teachers are friendly and extremely supportive, helping you to achieve the grades you need at GCSE and A-Level. I’ve been able to get involved in lots of activities outside of the classroom including reaching the AEGON team tennis national finals and participating in the European Youth Parliament. My highlight has been travelling to Nepal with the school where I got the chance to teach in the Peace Garden School, set up by Birkdale, and trek in the Himalayas!”
