Our Story

Rochelle Conefrey

Headteacher of Kirkby High School


We believe in building a culture of resilience and tolerance in which our students can thrive. Our aim is to increase our students’ self-belief and to show them that they can be what they want to be.

Good relationships between school and parents/carers are key in developing young people successfully. Because this is crucial, parents/carers are invited to phone school anytime or to arrange to come into school for a visit and a tour. I am more than happy to accommodate this personally.

I hope you find all the information you need in our prospectus. If you wish to know more, please don’t hesitate to get in touch.
