An Introduction to Dawpool

A Virtual Tour of Dawpool
  • A Message from Mr Burrows

    Head Teacher

On behalf of the children, staff, church and governors, I welcome you to Dawpool Church of England (Aided) Primary School. 

Due to the ongoing COVID-19 restrictions, we are currently unable to host events in school for prospective parents. We recognise that being able to visit a school is an important part of choosing the right school for your child. We have therefore provided above a virtual tour to enable you to look around Dawpool at a time that is convenient for you. Please have a look at the information on our website which will hopefully answer many of your questions.  If you have any further questions about Dawpool or the admissions process, please Mrs Kenney, our School Business Manager, on 0151 648 3412 or email who will be happy to help you.

Dawpool is a welcoming, inclusive family school with a strong Christian ethos, a sense of community and a commitment to excellence for all children in our care. The Dawpool community are united in their ambition to create a school which embodies the person, love and work of Jesus Christ: a school which enables Christian values to flourish and where all children may experience 'The abundant life that Jesus offers' (John 10:10).

We are a Voluntary Aided Church of England school and have very close links with St Chad’s Church, Irby and St Bartholomew’s Church, Thurstaston. Our Christian values - known as the ‘Fruit of the Spirit’ - are embedded into the heart of the school:

‘Love, Joy, Peace, Patience, Kindness, Generosity, Faithfulness,

Gentleness & Self-Control (Galatians 22-23)

We are enormously proud of our school and its place in the local community of Thurstaston and Irby. Our locality at the foot of Thurstaston Hill is one of the most attractive school settings on Wirral. Our website will hopefully give you a sense of our unique environment and the abundant curriculum we provide.

Thank you once again for your interest in Dawpool and please don't hesitate to contact us if you have any questions. 

David Burrows
