The Charity & Company

The Charity ('West Kirby Residential School') was founded and first registered on 22 September 1962, with the aim of providing education and care to children and young people with complex special needs.


Charity President

Mr. Anthony Shone is President of the Charity. Anthony has lived on Wirral all his life and has been involved in a number of voluntary and charitable activities including serving as a Non-Executive Director of an NHS Hospital Trust.

Anthony has had a long relationship with the school, beginning in the mid-nineties when he led a fundraising appeal to repair the roof of the school building. Through the successful completion of this project (and rising pupil numbers), it gave the momentum for the school to become the outstanding establishment it is today. A year or two later much to Anthony's surprise but delight, he was invited to become President of the Charity, and he has served in this role ever since.
