As a non-maintained special school, West Kirby School and College (Run by the charity West Kirby Residential School) caters for children and young people, aged 5-19 years, with complex special educational needs and disabilities. We support pupils with social and communication difficulties, including Autistic Spectrum Condition, sensory and emotional needs, across a range of cognitive abilities.
Our aim is for our young people to leave West Kirby School with academic qualifications and developed social, emotional and communication skills. We achieve this through structured, supportive learning and an individualised curriculum, based on the concept of relevant and meaningful learning, where pupils make aspirational progress from their starting points.
Due to its location, West Kirby School and College can offer a wide range of opportunities for community activities including the local park and beach, sports, water recreation and natural history. Liverpool and Chester with their wealth of art, culture and history are within easy reach. The school is close to the centre of West Kirby village and is just two hundred yards from the nearest beach and local marine lake.
