All students hoping to join our Sixth Form in September are encouraged to follow our latest Instagram page (click here to visit our Sixth Form Induction page) where you will be able to ask questions of our current Sixth Form Senior Team and find out more about life in the WKGS Sixth Form. You are also encouraged to access the transition work that has been posted to help you make the step from GCSE to A-level (wkgs.org/summer-work).

Year 7 Induction and Welcome

We have created a new page on our website for Year 6 students who will be joining us in September with some resources and activties to help you get to know our school and what life is like at West Kirby. Please visit wkgs.org/y7-transition for the latest information and some material to introduce to our school community.

Extra Curricular & Enrichment

We encourage all of our students to play a part in the extra-curricular life of the school. Engaging in such opportunities allows students to develop various important skills, and helps them to feel a greater sense of belonging to the school community.  

In school, we offer a range of clubs, societies and activities to all year groups, most of which meet during lunchtimes. There are many musical and sporting groups for students to join, as well as a range of subject-led clubs - from science, maths and languages to technology and art.

Students can take also part in ‘mindfulness’ activities, Fairtrade and Amnesty International events, as well as catch up clubs and after school homework clubs. Our programme is updated each term.

Trips & Visits

Students are given the opportunity to participate in many different visits each year. These are mainly organised by departments and range from numerous local trips and visits, which enhance the curriculum, to up to fifteen foreign visits each year to Europe, America and China.

Examples of recent trips include language visits to France, Germany, Spain and Italy, science visits to CERN and NASA, a geography expedition to Iceland and Religious Studies and History visits to Auschwitz and the First World War battlefields.

Expeditions to China take place on an annual or biennial basis, working with children in Inner Mongolia, as well as visiting Hong Kong and Beijing.
