What Our Parents Say

"With a quiet, shy boy finding the right school was crucial. Birkdale staff know all their boys individually. With considered inclusive lessons, encouragement in sport and a range of activities; we have watched our son flourish over the years to become an informed, interesting, polite and entertaining young man, well equipped for his move to senior school."

Mrs Jow

“Birkdale Prep School was the right choice for our son. He joined the school from prep 1 after relocating from Germany to Sheffield. Since then he has received a very high standard of teaching from highly motivated and enthusiastic teachers. His English language skills are amazing, his confidence has grown significantly and he has made friends for life. We would like to thank the headmaster and all his teachers for a fantastic time at Birkdale Prep School.”

Andreas & Katrin Lübs

“At Birkdale Prep our son has been stretched academically, grown in confidence and tried a broad range of activities, but had the opportunity to develop his own interests. However, above all, he has been cared for brilliantly as an individual."

Paul and Deborah Houghton

"Birkdale has a very high academic standard but it is so much more than just academia. Our sons are encouraged to grow as individuals through respect for themselves and others. The pastoral aspect of Birkdale is excellent, where all aspects of children's diverse talents are valued and developed."

Mr & Dr Tupper

"We think Birkdale School is excellent because it knows how to look after, inspire and motivate BOYS. The atmosphere is relaxed yet focused and caring yet competitive. We are delighted that our boys are able to grow and learn in such a safe and challenging environment."
