Appeals to South Wirral High School

On 1st March parents of students moving to secondary school in September find out their allocated school. If you are unhappy with your secondary school allocation, don’t despair, South Wirral High School offers a quality education for all abilities with students achieving outstanding exam results. We have limited places available through the Wirral Council appeals process.


What do I need to do next?

At South Wirral, we operate an “Every Day is Open Day” policy. We like to allow parents to see the school on a normal day rather than just at an Open Evening.
