On Saturday, over 120 secondary phase pupils were involved in sport at Liverpool College.
Firstly over thirty girls were involved in a rugby training session with ALLcoaching. As the girls were finishing both the U13 and U15 boys rugby teams put Scarisbrick Hall to the sword with two convincing wins. Then it was over to the girls hockey and despite the U12-U14-U15 teams losing out to Westholme, the U13 produced a brilliant performance to win 2-0. Finally, the senior rugby team saw a busy sporting Saturday come to an end with an entertaining 26-22 win over visitors from the Isle of Man - King William's College.
Purpose, Passion and Challenge, all in glorious sunshine!
Our Year 13 leavers are celebrating their results today. There are many who deserve special congratulation. At least 3 pupils will take up their places at Oxbridge: Isobel W, 3A*, Natural Sciences, Cambridge, Sam R, History, Oxford and Jack C, Law at Oxford.
There was also good news for the future medics and dentists, with 4 pupils gaining the grades needed for their first choice university to study medicine or dentistry.
Some faculties and subjects were particularly impressive in adding value and in achievement at the top grades; History, English Literature, Physics, Further Maths and Art especially.
Other impressive performances were: James P who will fulfil his dream of studying Chinese Studies at Durham, and Mustafa F, 4A* and off to Imperial College to read Chemical Engineering.
Overall the average grade was a B- and well over 80 percent of grades were in the A*-C range.
Congratulations to all students and staff.
