At Birkdale North School, the children are at the heart of all our decision-making. Our top-quality staff provide an environment where children can flourish academically, physically, artistically, socially and emotionally.

We have a collective ethos of care, fostering close, positive relationships with students and their families, living our core values of respect, integrity, perseverance and empathy. All our children enjoy these many benefits:

  • Vibrant multicultural atmosphere
  • Strong arts and sports programmes
  • The chance to participate in our kapa haka and Pasifika performance groups
  • Fantastic playground
  • Huge, grassy grounds
  • Large hall for school and community gatherings
  • Swimming pool.

Our teachers are second to none in their enthusiasm, creativity, and sincere engagement with the children’s educational progress.

We are an open, friendly school and invite you to come for a visit. Our principal, Linda Low, will be pleased to answer your questions and show you around. Come see for yourself the school we are so proud of!
