Science - Big Bang @ Birkenhead School

In conjunction with the Royal Society of Chemistry and Big Bang North West, we host a series of Science Fairs for local cubs and brownie groups.  During the course of the evening, the cubs and brownies have an opportunity to try a wide range of experiments and activities under the guidance of our student Science Leaders.

Author Events

During the year, we are fortunate to have the opportunity to invite well-known authors into the School, to speak to students from both Prep and Seniors.  Invitations are extended to local primary schools. A number of the events are hosted in conjunction with Linghams Booksellers in Heswall.  Past authors have included Clare Balding, Tony Robinson and Robin Stevens.

Festival of Music

During our annual Festival of Music we offer workshops and performance opportunities to local schools.

During the year, we host a range of Sports Festivals and Tournaments for students at local primary and secondary schools.

Recent Sports Festivals have included:
