As a non-maintained special school, West Kirby School and College (Formerly known as West Kirby Residential School) caters for children and young people, aged 5-19 years, with a range of complex special educational needs and disabilities. We support pupils with social and communication difficulties, including Autistic Spectrum Condition; complex learning, sensory and emotional needs, across a range of cognitive abilities.

Our aim is for our young people to leave West Kirby School with academic accreditations, together with developed social, emotional and communication skills. We achieve this through a structured, supportive learning environment with an individualised curriculum, based on the concept of relevant and meaningful learning, where children and young people make aspirational progress from their starting point.

Our on-site Support Services includes Occupational Therapy, Speech and Language Therapy, Clinical Psychology and Pastoral Care. All Support Services are an intrinsic part to pupils' education at West Kirby School and College; integrated across the school and Residential Care provision, this support web underpins our pupils' learning, development and success.

In tandem with this, we promote the development of life skills through structured activities, wellbeing and life adventures, both in and outside of school. These enrich learning opportunities and give pupils an appreciation of the wider world, community and charitable partnerships. Our broad approach enables pupils to experience and develop career pathways which will lead them to a successful adult life.

Due to its location to the North West on the Wirral penninsula, West Kirby School and College is able to offer a wide range of opportunities for community relationships, 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.
