Welcome to our school website. We’re glad that you’ve chosen to share a part of our school life. On this website we aim to provide an insight into our school & a range of information about how we work. However, if you would like to know anything that is not on the website, please call Mandy or Jayne in the school office & they’ll be able to find the right person to help you.

Our school is in the heart of Liverpool city centre and we welcome children from all over the world into our learning community. Being at the centre of the university campuses, we are the perfect choice for parents who either study or work locally to us.

Our children can start in Bluebirds Nursery from birth and can stay with us until they’ve turned 11. While your children are with us we offer them a wealth of opportunities to enrich their learning including regular visitors to the school and trips to local places of interest. We also try to offer opportunities for residential activities. We educate the whole child and will work with you to ensure that your child reach their full potential. We collaborate with parents & other agencies to ensure that every child receives individualised attention and we closely monitor progress to identify swiftly any barriers to learning; such as Special Educational Needs (SEN), English as an additional language (EAL) or high attainment.

We work in collaboration with our local network of schools through DGT (Dingle, Granby & Toxteth Collaborative) and across the city through the Liverpool Learning Partnership to ensure that all of the staff receive high quality CPD opportunities to enhance the learning of your child.

Parents are always welcome to come to the school and we are always happy to support families in a wider context than the education of their child. Helen Needham, Pastoral Care Mentor, can advise on a range of issues from learning English to benefits entitlements and secondary school admissions.
