As the town of Wallasey covers quite a large area of the eastern peninsula, there are an abundance of schools for parents to consider for both primary and secondary education.
With a rating of ‘Outstanding’ by Ofsted, Liscard Primary School on Withens Lane is a highly sought-after school. Providing care and education from children of pre-school age to those who are in the final year of their Key Stage 2 learning, the school offers a varied curriculum throughout each school year and pupils here perform higher than the national average in English and Mathematics. As an expert centre for the Global Learning Programme, Liscard Primary School is a leader in the teachings of Social, More, Spiritual and Cultural Education.
Just over the other side of the Liscard is the St. George’s Primary School, which has more pupils than the average British primary school. Having launched new curriculums in late 2017, the school has focused on improving the students’ English Literature and Mathematic skills, with pupils performing on the national average for both Reading and Mathematics. Along with the standard curriculum subjects, the school also hosts the Forest School, getting children out and about into the local green spaces to explore the great outdoors.
For those parents who are looking for a church school education for their children, the St. Peter & St. Paul Roman Catholic Primary School is a popular choice. Located at the top of the eastern peninsula, the school is just a few minutes’ walk away from the bustling area of New Brighton.
Other primary schools in the area include Park Primary School and St. Alban’s Roman Catholic Primary School, amongst many others.
Despite its vast amount of primary schools, Wallasey is home to just four secondary schools but this small and impressive list makes it a tough choice for parents with children leaving their primary school education years.
The Weatherhead High School based on Breck Road, considers itself to be one of the top performing state schools in the country and has a rating of ‘Outstanding’ in each area of its most recent Ofsted report.
