Membership of the Old Birkonian Society is open to people who attended Birkenhead School, Wirral.
In recent years leavers become members automatically if their parents have paid their life subscription as part of the school fees.
Prior to this life membership could be paid as a one-off fee or there was an option for an annual standing order.
Some members also realised that the one-off life membership might not be sufficient due to rising costs to the Society over the years and either started a new annual subscription or paid a new life membership.
If you did not join on leaving school, or later on, it is still possible to take out a life membership. In 2015 Council reviewed the fees and an application form can be found here which also shows the cost depending upon your age.
