Take a 360 Tour of our Campus

Birkenhead School is located in Oxton and offers a wonderful environment where children grow and develop into young adults and we hope you enjoy exploring the campus via our interactive tour below.

The Welcome hotspot provides information on how to guide yourself through the tour and the menu on the left hand-side allows you to select specific areas of interest.  You can 'drag' the image so that you can view the image as a '360° panorama' and through the tour we have shared additional information, images and videos.

We recommend viewing the tour on a desktop/laptop or tablet. To view in a separate browser/window (advisable) please click here.
