Visions & Values

School Vision,values and ethos

As a Non Maintained Special School, West Kirby Residential School caters for boys and girls with a range of complex social, emotional and behavioural difficulties, often linked with conditions such as Autism Spectrum Disorder, learning difficulties and communication problems.

It is a priority to provide a structured, supportive and controlled learning environment for each pupil. By actively encouraging children to develop their inner control and social skills, staff can help them to overcome their own individual behavioural difficulties.

Pupils are able to learn and grow in situations that will help them achieve their maximum potential. Staff are specially trained to assist pupils in developing an awareness both of themselves as individuals and within a group, increasing their respect for others, their self-esteem, emotional stability and acceptability.

Due to its location to the North West of the Wirral peninsula, West Kirby is able to offer a wide range of opportunities for 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.

Young people at WKRS are continually presented with a wide range of challenges, in education and life skills, to help nurture their unique talents and prepare them for adult life.

I am indeed proud to be leading such a well-resourced and active school, with highly qualified and committed staff and so many enthusiastic, responsive and successful pupils. At West Kirby Residential School we take children further and enjoy their success.
