Birkenhead School launches sixth form scholarships

By Emma Gunby at

At this time of year, many Wirral students will be deciding on where to study A Levels from September.

Birkenhead School has announced that 100% funded, sixth form, Access Scholarships are now available from September 2020.

Paul Vicars, Headmaster, said: ‘This initiative continues our desire to be as accessible as possible to local families and is available for students who would benefit from all an independent education can offer, but would otherwise be unable to attend without significant funding being made available.

“We are committed to removing as many barriers to entry to study at the school as possible.

“We believe our Sixth Form offering is an exciting one, with a commitment to academic excellence combined with forward-thinking initiatives which give our students a great foundation and network for the years ahead.  As the size of our Sixth Form grows, we are excited to be able to offer this extensive means-tested financial support to students with strong academic credentials, who would otherwise not be able to consider enjoying their sixth form education with us.”

Students who are interested in applying for the Access Scholarships, are invited to the school’s upcoming sixth form Open Evening on Thursday 13th February, 6.00 – 8.00pm, and to submit an application by Monday 24th February.

Further information can be found on the school’s website – www.birkenheadschool.co.uk
