Selective entrance examinations
We are proud of our record of success in selective entrance examinations, with the majority of pupils gaining places at the school of their choice. The staff provide support and guidance for parents and children in choosing their Senior School. In Years 5 and 6 we offer preparation for the entrance examinations for the selective schools in Wirral both in curriculum time and as extra-curricular provision.
The vast majority of children move on to schools such as:
- West Kirby Grammar School
- Calday Grange Grammar School
- Upton Hall FCJ
- St Anselm’s College
- Birkenhead Academy
- Birkenhead School
