Hilbre High School

Hilbre High School is a secondary modern school, located in West Kirby, Wirral, United Kingdom. The school holds Specialist Humanities College status.

The school was founded as a girls' school in 1966 and merged with Hoylake Parade Boys School in 1973 to become co-educational. The school has been recently rebuilt, with a City Learning Centre being added on the site. Reconstruction took place in phases over a period of a few years (starting approx 2001) and has recently been completed.

The school is run by Miss Levenson. Since she took charge exam results have incresed and increased to were they are now (2008) were 78% of students got 5 GCSE's A*-C.

An new feature to hilbre is a new "drama theatre" which was funded by the schools humanities status and was designed by the music department to be used as a recording studeo. (i mean drama isn't even humanities?!?) However the music department needs more funding, as they only receive about £800 a year and considering that an average keyboard costs £100 so that £800 doesn't go very far!!!

Notable former pupils

* The Coral, musicians
