Pastoral care is valued highly at Birkdale and is an important part of our commitment to our core values, offering a warm, caring and supportive environment. Crucial to any school are the friendly staff, pupil and parent relationships.
Pupils are aware that they have easy access to their Form Tutors through daily contact at registration which allows close relationships between tutor and pupil to develop. This is further supported by the relevant Head of Section. These are:
Head of Lower School – Mr Howard Parker
Head of Middle School – Mr Matthew Morton
Director of Sixth Form – Mrs Helen Parsons
Each look after the welfare of the pupils. Tutors take a keen interest in the curricular and extra-curricular progress of their tutees. Problems are dealt with quickly and effectively in a caring and supportive way.
