School Description

Leaders have high ambitions for every pupil. Many pupils arrive at West Kirby after a period of disrupted and turbulent education. Leaders and staff get them back on track. They help pupils to manage their own behaviour, to re-engage with learning and to gain qualifications that set them up well for adult life. Pupils know that staff want to help. Staff support pupils when they find things difficult. This means that pupils can relax and enjoy their time at school. Pupils feel safe because they know staff will listen to any worries they have. Some pupils struggle to behave well when they first come to this school. However, they soon settle in and learn how to manage their emotions. Once pupils have been at the school for a short while, they behave well. Bullying is extremely rare, but everyone is confident that staff would deal with it thoroughly if it did happen. Leaders have thought very carefully about the strengths and interests of pupils. They offer courses and subjects that suit pupils very well. For example, leaders have introduced an animal husbandry course and a BTEC National Diploma in sports science for pupils who have an interest in these subjects.
