Birkdale High School
BIrkdale High School is a thriving, oversubscribed academy in Southport. We are proud to be a school for all boys regardless of ability, background, interests or personality. As the only 11-16 all-boys academy in Sefton, we aim to be a beacon for outstanding practice in the education of boys and the school of choice for all boys in the Southport community and beyond.
We passionately believe that a single-sex setting at this particular stage of a boy’s education is the ideal environment for them to grow in confidence, close the attainment gap with girls and develop their love of learning. Our vision is driven by the strong moral imperative that it is our mission to provide all our boys with a first class education, outstanding outcomes and better life chances. We seek to challenge stereotypes and we are ambitious for every boy we teach.
We invest in our staff and work closely with a range of other institutions locally and beyond to engage, support, stretch and challenge all boys by providing them with a range of exciting opportunities; a varied and purposeful curriculum and a strong set of core values. We have an outstanding academic and sporting record, but are equally proud of our boys’ involvement in all aspects of the wider school life.
