At West Kirby Grammar School, we empower and embolden every child to make choices in pursuit of their passion. The breadth of our curriculum and rich diversity of extra-curricular opportunities help all pupils to discover that vital spark which makes them unique.

We are consistently ranked amongst the top state schools on the Wirral, but we look beyond league tables and academic excellence. Our caring community values and nurtures students as individuals.

We focus not just on what a child learns, but also on how they learn as each pupil grows in confidence, independence and stature to become a well-rounded young adult, ready to move into the next stage of their life and seize new opportunities.

Welcome to West Kirby Grammar School – the school of choice.
