At the end of November 2015, just a few short weeks before the Christmas holidays, West Kirby Grammar School suffered a catastrophic flood after a storage tank submerged the school under thousands of gallons of water. The burst tank caused £400,000 of damage. The flooring in the classrooms, laboratories, offices, corridors and the main dining hall were destroyed. The 100-year-old school was forced to close for a day and rendered a sizeable proportion of the school unusable for the rest of the term.


What we did

Wilsons Flooring Specialists dropped everything to help West Kirby Grammar restore the school before term started again in January. We are extremely dedicated to our customers and as a family-run business ourselves, we understand the impact that these sorts of circumstances can have. As such, our directors, John and Linda Wilson, even cancelled their planned holiday to help the school, losing £1000 of their own money.

Thanks to our strong relationships with our suppliers, we were able to source flooring very quickly. This was a very big job. More than 1700 sq m was fitted by our team over the festive period. Contractors, teachers and volunteers worked together to rebuild and repair the damaged parts of the school. It was a real community project.



West Kirby Grammar School was back in business and fully operational in time for the new Spring term. Most importantly, it was safe for staff and students. The school invited Wilsons Flooring Specialists to a formal re-opening of the school and a thank you party, both of which were joined by Wirral Mayor, Les Rowlands.
