Head of Prep School Welcome


Welcome to Birkdale Prep School, where boys, staff and parents work together to reach the highest academic standards within a broad and enriched curriculum.  The friendly, family atmosphere enables Birkdale boys to be confident, happy and willing to take advantage of the fantastic opportunities available to them.

It is an exciting time in the history of Birkdale Prep School. A £2 million investment and refurbishment of nearby Belmayne House has just been completed and provides fantastic new facilities for our Pre-Prep (Infant) Department.  Please take a look on the Belmayne House section of the website to see for yourself how your son could benefit.

Birkdale is a school where boys can reach their full potential.  We are committed to giving boys a secure and happy environment in which to thrive, recognising that each boy is unique, and helping each individual strive towards reaching their full potential.  In our efforts to do this it is our Christian ethos that underpins all that we seek to be and to do.

It is a great privilege to have the responsibility of helping to shape the lives of the boys in our care.  Birkdale has a huge expertise in 'boys' and the way in which they learn best whilst also subscribing to those timeless values that embrace good manners, courtesy, self-respect, respect for others and a sense of duty and responsibility.  Our experienced staff treat the boys as individuals aiming to give the the confidence and self-reliance needed for success in a rapidly changing world.

Do enjoy our website; these words and pictures help demonstrate the numerous opportunities available to Birkdale boys.

Please arrange a visit to see the school in action; I would be delighted to meet you and your family and to show you how Birkdale can exceed your expectations for your son's learning journey.
