Wirral Hospitals School offers full-time education to students aged 11-16 on its main campus base for those well enough to access it. Admissions are for young people with mental and physical problems including anxiety, depression, self-harm, eating disorders, chronic fatigue syndrome, sometimes alongside social and communication difficulties and autism spectrum conditions which have prevented them from being able to succeed in mainstream schools. The majority of students are of White British heritage. Many students have been out of school for lengthy periods of time and are often in their later years of schooling at the time of admission. Additionally, the governing body supports the provision of teaching to pregnant school girls and young mothers in an on-site facility. The school also provides outreach education in the form of individual tuition for 5-16 year-olds who are in-patients at Arrowe Park Hospital and teaching to small groups of students attending the Child Adolescent Mental Health Service/Education Assessment Unit in Adcote House. The main campus at Joseph Paxton Campus is also host to Wirral’s Home Education Service with which there is close liaison. However, this is a local authority provision and not managed or funded by the school. This provision receives a separate inspection and a separate report, which is available on the Ofsted website. The proportion of students known to be eligible for pupil premium funding is above average. The school holds a large number of awards including Leading from the Middle, the International School award, the Eco School (Green Flag) award, and the Extended Services award. It is also a nationally-recognised Healthy School, and has Mental Health Awareness in School status, and the Unicef Rights Respecting School award. It is currently working towards Autism Friendly School status.
2015 GCSE RESULTSImportant information for parents
Due to number of reforms to GSCE reporting introduced by the government in 2014, such as the exclusion of iGCSE examination results, the official school performance data may not accurately report a school’s full results. For more information, please see About and refer to the section, ‘Why does a school show 0% on its GSCE data dial? In many affected cases, the Average Point Score will also display LOW SCORE as points for iGCSEs and resits are not included.
Schools can upload their full GCSE results by registering for a School Noticeboard. All school results data will be verified.
