Welcome to Prep

 

A broad and balanced curriculum, focused pastoral care and an exciting skills development programme combine to ensure that our pupils flourish in the Prep years. 

 

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 can reach (and even exceed) his or her potential, 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 child to thrive and develop. All members of staff are dedicated to promoting positive attitudes, enabling children to develop self-confidence, independence, effective social skills and a strong sense of responsibility.

Academic success is built through the breadth of experience pupils gain, both inside and outside the classroom. The vast array of opportunities in music, sport and co-curricular activities ensure that each individual can learn specific skills, discover and develop new talents and enjoy plenty of fun with friends.

One of our key objectives is to inspire a love of learning as we see this as an essential part of preparation for secondary education and beyond.

Do come and visit us to discover what Birkenhead School can offer your child – we look forward to welcoming you.
