We are delighted to announce that 100% Funded Access Scholarships are available for new students looking to join the Sixth Form at Birkenhead School from September 2021.
Birkenhead School is committed to removing as many barriers to entry to study at the School as possible. Access Scholarships exist to provide opportunities for those who have not yet benefitted to date from everything that an independent education offers. Factors in their award include academic ability and family means. We believe our Sixth Form offering is an outstanding one; committed to academic excellence combined with forward-thinking initiatives to give our students a head start for the years ahead. As the size of our Sixth Form grows, we are excited to be able to offer extensive means-tested financial support to students with strong academic credentials, who would otherwise not be able to consider enjoying their sixth form education at the School.
What sets our sixth form apart from others?
We are immensely proud of our examination results and, alongside outstanding teaching, the wealth of opportunities afforded to our students. Indeed, being a member of the Sixth Form here is about so much more than academic success, and we offer a vast range of co-curricular activities across Music, Drama and Sport, all of which are designed to inspire creativity, encourage self-discipline and develop leadership. We aim to teach our Sixth Formers to be independent thinkers and to foster a lifelong love of learning. Whether their interests lie in the Arts and Humanities, the Sciences, or both, superb facilities and excellent resources allow our students to excel in their chosen field.
