Great nursery with fantastic staff. Both of our girls have gone there and love it.

My son has recently started in the pre-school room and is loving it. Every time I pick him up he is always engaged in an activity as are all the other children. The room is spacious with lots of resources. The staff are very friendly and welcoming. I was particularly impressed that the nursery had a qualified teacher in the room. It is also an added bonus that he is a male teacher. With being a single parent it is great to know that my son has a positive male role model to look up to. When my son was doing his settling in sessions he took a shine to a little car and bus. The teacher promised him that he would look after them for him. The following day when he went in the teacher took the car and bus out of his pocket and handed them to my son. It is the small things like that that make a big impact. I can only presume that all the other rooms in the nursery are so well run.

Calday Grange Grammar School

Grammar School Ln, West Kirby, Birkenhead, Wirral CH48 8GG, UK – 0151 625 2727

I am picking a sixth form soon and I'm strongly considering going. I know people who attended the school and all are very well-read/well-spoken individuals and the school clearly turns out good people. Right now, I go to Chester Catholic High and it's terrible. Teaching quality at chsc is hit and miss and very few extracurricular activities. Will be moving to Calday before long hopefully.

I attended from 1946-1951 on a Scholarship -- was the greatest education and experience which I will never forget

Phoenix School of Dance

Fantastic dance school catering to a range of ages and stages. Welcoming, inclusive, and the only dance school my daughter has actually enjoyed.

Excellent dance school. Teachers ery professional and caring towards the children. It's a very family orientated school and it shows as the kids love going. They have won numerous awards and have danced at Disneyland. I wouldn't take my daughter anywhere else.

Hoylake School Of Dance

100 Market St, Hoylake, Wirral CH47 3BD, UK – 0151 632 6257

Hoylake School of Dance is a wonderful school well managed with a fantastic reputation. The staff are friendly, encouraging and approachable, but the lessons are challenging too. It has high standards and pays particular attention to detail. The teachers manage to bring out confidence and skills even in the quietest child, through encouragement, perseverance and belief. The facilities are great and my daughter loves going there as she has made many friends from being a young shy child. Other parents are very friendly and helpful too. Anyone interested in dance should go along and see for themselves.

Great place for children to discover a love of dancing. However it has given my daughter so much more than just a love of dancing, she has made so many friends and grown in confidence in the last 7 years. All abilities catered for and embraced by a great staff. When you watch the students dance you can't help but be impressed by the standards achieved. Lots of different types of dancing to choose from as well. Would recommend to anyone.

Study Time

176 Banks Rd, West Kirby, Wirral CH48 0RH, UK – 07850 038106

Since my daughter, G, who is Year 5, joined one of “Mr Joe’s” classes her progress in Mathematics and Comprehension has been immense. She thoroughly enjoys the lessons, which he renders exciting and engaging through his highly enthusiastic style, and looks forward to the next one with lively anticipation. She has put herself in a great position as regards her upcoming assessments: that is entirely due to “Mr Joe” and his team and I cannot thank them enough. I am confident that G will perform well in September and do herself justice.

Our son thoroughly enjoys attending lessons at Study Time - West Kirby. His attitude to learning has significantly improved, since he joined last September. He has recently passed his entrance exams, with special merit on his creative writing. This was no easy task, given that he was an extremely reluctant writer. We simply couldn't have recieved this result without the hard work and support of Mr. Joe and Miss Libby. Their extremely enthuastic nature and engaging manner has made learning so much fun. I cannot recommend Study Time highly enough! It is tremendous.
