Welcome to Birkenhead School Prep
A broad and balanced curriculum, strong pastoral care and an exciting skills development programme combine to ensure our pupils grow in self-confidence and independence. We encourage mutual respect and our caring, inclusive ethos is underpinned by Christian values and a great sense of community.
Our main goal is to foster children's development so that each individual reaches his or her potential in every aspect of school life in preparation for an exciting future. Small class sizes ensure that our teachers know their pupils well and, through careful planning and assessment, they help each individual child to make progress at every stage of their educational journey. Our staff are dedicated to promoting positive attitudes, enabling children to develop effective social skills as well as a strong sense of responsibility.
Academic success is built through positive relationships with staff and other pupils and through the breadth of experience pupils gain both inside and outside the classroom. The opportunities in music, sport and co-curricular activities ensure that each individual can learn specific skills, discover new talents and enjoy plenty of fun with friends.
One of our key objectives is to develop inquiring minds in our pupils, leading to an independent approach to learning. We see this as an essential part of preparation for secondary education and an education for life.
Do come and visit us to discover what Prep is really like - I look forward to welcoming you.
