Birkenhead School has launched a new and exciting community course for children in Years 5 and 6 at local state primary schools to help them prepare for secondary school regardless of their destination for secondary education.

The programme launches at a time when preparing young children could not be more critical given the recent lockdowns. ‘Be Inspired’ will run over a 6 week period between May and June and local schools and parents are invited to nominate children who will be invited to attend one or more of the weekly sessions.

The children selected will be exposed to new subjects and activities, as well as building on the national curriculum with engaging, creative lessons supplementing the work done in their Primary Schools. Sessions range from ‘You Want to Be an Astronaut’, combining Chemistry and Astronomy to Rock Music sessions and sports using the school’s sporting facilities.

The lessons will be led by teachers from Birkenhead School, supported by Sixth Form pupils, who will act as mentors for the younger children – academically, as well as offering advice on aspiration, university and confidence. Support for the most disadvantaged students who may have suffered educationally as a result of lockdown will be provided with the support to ‘catch-up’ with their peers and be prepared for their secondary school journey.

Birkenhead School is a leading independent school located in Oxton Wirral and ‘Be Inspired’ is the latest in a number of charity and community initiatives over recent years.

Nominations are invited from both local schools and parents and further information including a nomination form can be found below or on the School website at http://www.birkenheadschool.co.uk/Be-Inspired-Community-Course or by contacting the School office, enquire@birkenheadschool.co.uk. Transport, breakfast and lunch will be provided and children will be invited to attend one or more of the Saturday sessions.

Deadline for nominations : 25th April 2021
