We look to build strong links within the community through our Outreach programme of activities.

Examples of community activities and events include:

  • Big Bang @ Birkenhead School
  • Author Events
  • Festival of Music
  • Sports Festivals
  • Academic Competitions

Science - Big Bang @ Birkenhead School

In conjunction with the Royal Society of Chemistry and Big Bang North West, we host a series of Science Fairs for local cubs and brownie groups.  During the course of the evening, the cubs and brownies have an opportunity to try a wide range of experiments and activities under the guidance of our student Science Leaders.

Author Events

During the year, we are fortunate to have the opportunity to invite well-known authors into the School, to speak to students from both Prep and Seniors.  Invitations are extended to local primary schools. A number of the events are hosted in conjunction with Linghams Booksellers in Heswall.  See our 'Inspiring Talks Series' to view recent guests.

Festival of Arts

During our annual Festival of Music we offer workshops and performance opportunities to local schools.  

Academic Competitions

Our academic departments host competitions and challenges at the School for local primary and secondary schools. 

Examples include the Primary Schools Maths Challenge and Secondary Schools Maths Challenges run in conjunction with the UKMT (United Kingdom Mathematics Trust).
