Comments from some of our students, parents, alumni and community.

Dear Mr Bourgade,
I would like to thank yourself and your staff at Birkdale High for all the support my son has continued to receive this year. As always a special thanks to Mr Keary his form tutor. We were very pleased with his report.

School continues to provide a range of opportunities to interest my son and build his confidence and ability, thus ensuring my son can maintain his 100% attendance record. I can hardly believe he will be in year 10 next year.

Wishing you and all your staff a relaxing and happy summer holiday.

We are so incredibly proud. I have to admit, I've just shed a little tear, because, like you say, the changes are incredible.

Thank you so much for believing in our son. It's been a tough journey and I always hoped we'd come across teachers like yourself who'd see the potential in him and would inspire him to achieve that potential, which you definitely do. Without being cheesy, I honestly believe you've had such an impact in not only his academic attainment, but his confidence and self belief, which is massive.

I would also like to take this opportunity to thank yourself and the rest of the teachers, who have worked so hard in trying to get the best out of my boys. Over the last 9 years I've been able to watch my boys blossom into young men. Each one has special, happy individual memories to keep for ever. So thank you all again.

Last night [at parents' evening] it was clear to me that every teacher genuinely cares about [my son] and wants him to do well. Thank you so much for all you do!

Can I just say a big thank to all the teachers who have helped our son during his time at Birkdale High - I hope he has done you proud with his exam results as he did find school work a struggle, particularly his written work!

I am writing to say a huge thank you for the lovely boys you sent to help with our Year 1 Sports Day. They were so professional, happy to help, confident and funny!! The children loved having them here and our parents were so impressed with how they represented themselves and your school. Thank you so much.
