Virtual Open Day Programme

Seniors & Sixth Form

Please note that our Virtual Open Day took place on Saturday 27th June. Below are supporting videos that you are able to view along with our virtual 360 tour that offers you an opportunity to explore our campus.

Please contact seniorsadmissions@birkenheadschool.co.uk or call 0151 651 3009 if you would like to talk to Ms Hopper, PA to the Headmaster, regarding opportunities in Seniors and Sixth Form.

We look forward to hearing from you.

Thank you for registering for the Birkenhead School Virtual Open Day. During these exceptional times, we want to offer an alternative to our traditional Open Day by offering the opportunity for families to meet with members of staff online and take a virtual tour of our campus.

We hope the information below and the Programme of Events on Saturday offers you an insight into our holistic offering in Seniors and Sixth Form. During the day there are a range of sessions for you to join that cover the spectrum of School life. We realise that a virtual experience cannot replace visiting the School in person, and we would like to extend an invitation for you to follow up with individual members of staff following the event and visit us over the coming weeks and months. 

We hope you enjoy the day, the supporting videos and our interactive 360 tour which are available to view below.

Welcome from Mr Vicars, Headmaster


Mr Vicars and Mr FitzHerbert, Head of Prep, will be hosting a live Question and Answer session via Zoom at 1.45pm on Saturday. Please see below for further information.

Take a 360 Virtual Tour of our Campus

Birkenhead School is located in Oxton and offers a wonderful environment where children grow and develop into young adults. During lockdown we have produced the interactive 360 tour below to allow you to explore our campus.

The Welcome hotspot provides information on how to guide yourself through the tour and the menu on the left hand-side allows you to select specific areas of interest.  You can 'drag' the image so that you can view the image as a '360 panorama' and through the tour we have shared additional information, images and videos.

We recommend viewing the tour on a desktop/laptop or tablet. To view in a separate browser/window (advisable) please click here.
