West Kirby Grammar School is one of the best schools
in the country for student progress at GCSE
West Kirby Grammar School has received national recognition for the value it adds to students’ achievements at GCSE.
A recent in-depth analysis of official Department for Education data on all state-funded schools in England by SSAT, the national schools’ membership organisation for improvement and collaboration, identified West Kirby Grammar School’s success.
The school has qualified for an SSAT Educational Outcomes Award by being in the top 20% of schools nationally for progress made by pupils between their key stage 2 results at primary school and their GCSE results at age 16.
The school has been invited to receive their award at a regional celebration ceremony hosted by SSAT at Dixons Allerton Academy in Bradford on 02 June.
Sue Williamson, Chief Executive of SSAT said:
‘West Kirby Grammar School should be congratulated for their exceptional achievement. They have proved themselves to be leading the field in improving GCSE outcomes for their students. There is so much good practice that this school could share, and I hope many schools will join us at the celebration ceremony for the chance to network and share strategies with award-winning schools.
‘These results are testament to the commitment and hard work of the students, teachers and leadership team at West Kirby Grammar School, and show what can be achieved when skilled teachers have high expectations and ambition for every young person. I am proud that this school is a member of the SSAT network.’

I would like to welcome you to our School. West Kirby Grammar is one of the best schools in the Country and was proclaimed “Outstanding” by OFSTED. We have an excellent academic record and outstanding examination results. This, however, is only one aspect of our school.
In its supportive environment our students achieve their very best. In 2013 we celebrated the school’s centenary. We provide a modern education but with traditional values. Every child is unique and we help students achieve their full potential. We care about the individual and strive to develop the whole person encouraging them to excel.
All our students are offered a rich programme of opportunities and they are encouraged to participate, to use their talents, to make new friends and face challenges with confidence. We aim to ensure that all students are fully equipped with the skills and ambition to become imaginative, creative individuals with a thirst for learning.
Students here enjoy their learning and are happy to be part of our flourishing community. As a specialist centre for Science and Maths we lead the way in innovative teaching with first class resources.
