Greasby benefits from a wide range of excellent education options for parents of young children, with infant and junior schools each within a close distance, helping the parents of those with children across both schools. Primary Schools include Greasby Infant and Junior School, Brookdale Primary School
and Our Lady of Pity Catholic Primary School.
Located on Barker Lane, Greasby Infant School
is at the center of the quieter, residential area of the village, tucked away from the hustle and bustle of the village high street. The school sets high standards for the pupils and have a core focus on Modern Foreign Languages, with the pupils learning French, Spanish and even Mandarin from Year 1, despite the fact that it is not essential in the National Curriculum. Having been rated as ‘Good’ by Ofsted, the school tends to be a popular choice within the immediate area.
Just a ten-minute walk away from the infant school is Greasby Junior School
and having been rated as ‘Outstanding’ by Ofsted in each area of inspection, there is little wonder why this school is sought-after by the local parents.
After its inspection, the school was recommended to Ofsted by the local authorities and its particular strength in teaching boys to excel in writing was used as a standard in a national report for best practice. After having introduced the Accelerated Reader Scheme into the curriculum, the pupils at the school have doubled their reading ages.
For parents who want their children to be educated in church school education, the Our Lady of Pity Catholic Primary School is a popular choice. As an academy, the school follows an alternative curriculum than other community schools in the area. The school use the principle of storytelling as an anchor for the curriculum and develop a story for each year group, allowing each subject to flow from one topic to another within the same context of the story.
Children of secondary school age are also within the catchment area for some of the best schools in the county such as; West Kirby Grammar School for Girls
, Calday Grange Grammar School, Hilbre High School, Pensby High School for Boys and Girls among others. Students are well connected by school and public buses, making Greasby a central location for a wealth of education options.
