Wilfred Owen is one of the Birkenhead Institute's most famous pupils, and his poetry is famous world wide.

Former B.I. Pupil Dean Johnson has created a special tribute site to Wilfred Owen at:-

                                               http://wilfredowenstory.com/

2)

The B.I. Old Boys Web Site, (BIOB), is an excellent site, and the BIOB has registered over 500 former pupils of the school. 

Keith Dutton, former B.I. pupil, has now upgraded the site which contains many old photographs, as well as full copies of "The Visor" from several years of the school.

Regular newsletters are issued to all who are on the register, full of interesting information about the B.I.  I thoroughly recommend this site, so please take the time to have a look:
