Living and Working in Wirral
St. George’s is located in Wallasey Village, in the North East corner of the Metropolitan Borough of Wirral.
The Wirral peninsular is a diverse and compact area and is surrounded by the River Dee and the Welsh Mountains to the West, the River Mersey and Liverpool to the East and the Irish Sea to the North.
With 25 miles of coastline you are never more than twenty minutes away from a beach which makes it a great place to live, especially in the Summer!
As well as miles of lovely coastline and some spectacular countryside, its attractive towns and villages of West Kirby, Meols, Hoylake, Heswall, Greasby and Caldy and its proximity to Liverpool and Chester, Wirral is a diverse area that will meet most lifestyle needs.
Wallasey Village is minutes from the popular seafront of New Brighton, a family friendly area that has recently undergone major redevelopment. With views across the Liverpool bay, the newly created Marine Point is a fun place to spend evenings or weekends visiting the many restaurants, bars and shops. There’s also the Light Cinema where you can catch the latest blockbuster movie and for the more active, a visit to Peak Pursuits, a state of the art activity centre where you can take part in outdoor pursuits such as canoeing, kayaking, climbing and sailing.
A few miles on, the coastal town of Hoylake with its vast beach, thriving high street and array of independent shops, cafes and bars as well as the attractive Victorian architecture make it an ideal place to live or just visit.
The beach at Hoylake has a wide expanse of sand, sand dunes and clean water. Horse riding and sand buggying are popular pastimes at low tide.
On the North Western tip of the peninsular, West Kirby, an attractive beach town, overlooks the Welsh Mountains across the bay. The beach is popular with swimmers, kayakers, sailors and wind surfers and anyone else who loves the sea. West Kirby is a vibrant town with a good selection of smart shops, restaurants and bars.
If you prefer Big City life then Liverpool is just a few minutes drive, or a short train ride. The city centre and water front apartments mean you can live right in the hub of it all – with art, football, shopping, water sports, film, theatre, music, walks, history, classical music, eating and drinking right on your doorstep. Further afield, Manchester is within an hour’s drive and Chester is less than half an hour away.
If you have children, the Wirral has many excellent primary and secondary schools across the borough in both the state and independent sector.
There’s a good stock of houses and apartments to suit all budgets and tastes, to rent or buy, if you are considering relocating here.
For commuters, Wirral is served well by the M53 motorway which connects with the M56 (Manchester and Wales) and M6 (Midlands and North). The Wallasey tunnel, just a few minutes from school, connects Wirral to the centre of Liverpool. Many of our teachers travel from Chester, Cheshire, Liverpool and North Wales – all within 30 minutes.
