Principal’s Message

BHSA is unique on the Wirral...


We want to work in partnership with our students and their families to ensure each and every girl flourishes during and beyond her time with us...

It is an honour and privilege to lead Birkenhead High School Academy, a vibrant learning community offering girls from the age of 3 to 19 years an outstanding education. There has been a school on our site for well over 100 years and we still embrace core traditional values, but also have a very firm eye on the ever changing future. Girls are given every opportunity to develop in to confident, articulate and responsible young women. They are encouraged to be challenged, take risks and to develop a life-long love of learning.

We are sponsored by the Girls’ Day School Trust and we share their aims of excellence in girls’ education and driving innovation. All BHSA girls benefit from the many opportunities offered by the GDST throughout its extensive network.

We expect our girls to adopt high principles for themselves and to expect the same from others. We have the highest standards in achievement, attendance, appearance and conduct. Our girls have access to outstanding levels of support, both on the pastoral and academic front, coupled with plenty of stretch and challenge from our excellent teachers and support staff. We are very proud of our extensive enrichment programme and all girls are encouraged to take advantage of the wide range of activities available to them throughout their time here.
