Birkenhead High School Academy is unique on Wirral as a 3-19 girls state academy. We are a thriving, all through learning community, embracing core traditional values with a firm eye on the ever-changing future. Our overall school direction can be encapsulated in three words: challenge, opportunity and partnership. Girls are encouraged to be challenged, take risks and to develop a life-long love of learning. They are given every opportunity to develop in to fearless, confident and responsible young women. We foster a family community within the school and also, we are very much part of the GDST wider family, sharing their aims as pioneers and shapers of girls’ education. BHSA students are strong members of this movement, with our girls benefitting from and contributing to the GDST’s extensive network. We firmly promote the all through approach to education, with the Junior School’s “Grow, Flourish, Think” model seamlessly blending in with the Sixth Form “Aspirational, Inspired, Independent” message. We have the highest standards in achievement, attendance, appearance and conduct. Our girls have access to outstanding levels of support both on the academic and pastoral front, coupled with plenty of stretch and challenge. Our high aspirations culture and ethos permeates both in and outside of the classroom and girls are encouraged to take advantage of our extensive enrichment programme and the plethora of GDST activities throughout their time at the school.
