We are planning for  summer transition activities for every student from Monday 21st to Wednesday 23rd August. To register your child onto the transition week, complete this form.

Mr Harrison - Associate Assistant Headteacher

Hello everyone. My name is Mr Harrison and I am the KS2 to KS3 Transition Lead at your new high school, South Wirral High. I am proud to be welcoming you and your family into our school community where we look forward to celebrating you, your progress and successful learning.

Every child matters at our high school and we are aspirational in everything you do. We want you to be a successful leader, be organised, show resilience and initiative, which means you become outstanding characters and the best version of yourself. There are lots of exciting opportunities before you join us in September, including virtual activities on Google Classroom, the Welcome Day on Wednesday 5th July and I look forward to visiting lots of you at your primary schools too. 

Take care South Wirral Starters of September 2023!

Claire Holden - Student Welfare Officer

Hi everyone, My name is Claire and I am the Student Welfare Officer here at school. I support the House Progress Leaders and the teachers to make sure everyone enjoys their time at South Wirral. I also work closely with the Local Authority, CAMHS, and Social Services. If you have any questions about the transition to secondary school specifically in relation to these outside agencies then please send me a message here.

Miss Goode - SENCO

At South Wirral High School, we believe that all pupils are entitled to an inclusive education that allows them to achieve their full potential. Every individual is encouraged to challenge themselves, work creatively in collaboration with others and most importantly, achieve the sense of accomplishment that comes from the determined effort to succeed in learning.

My team and I are committed to supporting all students, especially those with individual needs. We have high aspirations for our young people and support them so they can achieve excellence, but also have the necessary adaptations and reasonable adjustments to ensure the best achievements, both academically and individually.

Please contact myself, or Ms Fidal (Assistant SENDCo) if you have any questions as we’re here to help.

Victoria Goode 


Miss Fidal - Assistant SENCO

Hello, I’m Miss Fidal and I am the Assistant SENCO. My job is to make sure that every student with special educational needs or a disability can make the best possible progress at school. If you have any questions about the SEND department, or our provision, please send me a message here.
