Sixth Form Access Scholarships and Bursary Support
Birkenhead School is committed to removing as many barriers to entry to study at the School as possible. Access Scholarships exist to provide opportunities for those who have not yet benefitted to date from an independent education, and who possess the academic profile, values and attitudes to make a significant and positive contribution to the School community. Applications are also welcome from those who not only meet the minimum academic requirements for entry (stated below), but who also excel in co-curricular activities such as sport and music which are an integral part of the School's offering and ethos.
We believe our Sixth Form environment is an outstanding one; committed to academic excellence combined with an inspiring co-curricular programme and wider initiatives which provide our students with a head start for the years ahead.
Further extensive means-tested financial support is also available, up to 100% of fees, for strong candidates who would otherwise not be able to consider a Sixth Form education at Birkenhead School.
What sets our sixth form apart from others?
We are immensely proud of our examination results and, alongside outstanding teaching, the wealth of opportunities afforded to our students. Indeed, being a member of the Sixth Form here is about so much more than academic success, and we offer a vast range of co-curricular activities across music, drama and sport, all of which are designed to inspire creativity, encourage self-discipline and develop leadership. We aim to teach our Sixth Formers to be independent thinkers and to foster a lifelong love of learning. Whether their interests lie in the Arts, Humanities, the Sciences, or all, superb facilities and excellent resources allow our students to excel in their chosen field.
