    Curriculum and Programme

    The Middle School offers pupils a broad mandatory curriculum and programme. In our lengthened school day, pupils will typically experience daily a combination of lessons and sports and activity periods. 

    Regular homework is set and posted on line through the parent portal program, and feedback provided to pupils and parents. Our aim is to inspire in our pupils the core Lerpoolian traits: Purpose, Passion and Challenge. We demand the best from each pupil and providing a variety of learning experiences marked by high expectations and outstanding teaching.

    Curriculum and Timetable

    On entering Year 7, pupils will be placed by prior attainment as measured by results in the Key Stage 2 SATs into one of two bands. The bands are divided into two teaching classes, creating four groups which we call 7P, 7Q, 7R & 7S. Within the bands pupils are set for Mathematics and Spanish. In Years 8 and 9 most lessons taught in classes, although there is setting in Mathematics and languages when pupils are allocated to classes according to ability in the subject. The curriculum in the Middle School years is broad and balanced as can be seen in the curriculum overview above and made up of 19 different components, 14 of which are traditional academic subjects. and balanced so that pupils can explore many different areas of knowledge and develop their skills, abilities and interests.

    A unique feature of the Middle School is that every pupil is involved in the Spanish Immersion programme and begins the study of Latin.

    The timetable is set on a two week cycle of 50 65 minute lessons: prosaically titled Week A and Week B. The two-week cycle includes 2 periods of games and 4 periods of activities.


    Houses and Form Time

    Every pupil is assigned to both a House and a form group. Each House has a pastoral area with lockers near a House leader in the Middle School  The houses attend chapel together and there is a weekly House assembly. In addition, the houses compete in various intramural sporting events and activities.


    NSI

    NSI (Non Solum Ingenii – Not Only Intellect) is the name given to the Middle School, Upper School and Sixth Form section of the PSHCE programme of study. This is a new programme, having been introduced in September 2014. It has been developed in light of parental and pupil feedback and our prime intention is to respond to pupils’ needs. We welcome pupil, parent and colleagues’ feedback in order to evaluate the effectiveness of the curriculum and continually improve it. Three NSI Leads, one in each school, are responsible for the development, evaluation and co-ordination of the delivery of the programme. The NSI Lead for Middle School is Ms L Hamilton.

    The content in Middle School (Key Stage 3) and Upper School (Key Stage 4) 4 is based on the framework provided by the PSHE Association and is based on three core themes:

    1. Health and Wellbeing
    2. Relationships
    3. Living in the Wider World

    How is NSI Delivered?

    NSI is delivered during one or both of the registration slots, with House Form groups having specific allocated days for this purpose. House Tutors deliver the programme and NSI Leads assist Heads of House in evaluating the quality of the teaching of NSI.

     


     

    Sport and Activities

    Pupils compete in numerous competitive sports fixtures. In addition there is a broad programme of activities. These include: Art - Cre8 group, Boys rugby, Chess, DT - 'Design and Make It' group, Girls hockey, Knitting and crafts club, Debating group, Girls netball, ICT – Coding, School play rehearsals, Science STEM CLUB.

    In Form time Middle Schoolers engage with the Great Books programme, an opportunity for pupils to read well known and challenging books they select themselves from a list created by the English Faculty. It is also the time when NSI (an abbreviation of NON SOLUM INGENII, Not only the intellect from the College motto), our program of Personal Health Social Citizenship and Character education, is delivered.


    Careers

    In Year 8, Middle Schoolers begin to receive independent Careers education. We  use the Inspire Program, a partnership between CASCAID and Futurewise. This programme begins in Middle School but is continued in the Upper School. It seeks to raise the aspiration of our pupils and assist them in selecting appropriate GCSE courses and post-16 courses.


    The School Day and Routines

    The timetable is divided into 50 65 minute periods over two weeks. Every year group has a Games session. A key feature of the timetable is the extensive activities programme. Two periods per week are set aside for activities and pupils can select from a wide variety of options including sports, the arts, adventurous activities, community service and academic enrichment.

    Middle Schoolers may choose to take their lunch in the Middle School Hall, or may choose to eat in the main College dining room.

    The SENCO and the SEN staff provide support and guidance to pupils, parents and staff, and works closely with Heads of School and Heads of Year to ensure individual needs are met.

    Pupils with English as an Additional Language take extra lessons to develop their English skills, replacing some timetabled lessons.

  • Godwyn House Nursery

    Currently all children, irrespective of need, have a statutory entitlement to part-time nursery education from the beginning of the term following their third birthday. This entitlement is for 15 hours per week over 38 week

    This can be taken at Godwyn House Nursery as 5 morning session or 5 afternoon sessions over 36 weeks only as Godwyn House Nursery has a shorter academic year.

    Admissions

    For pupils joining Godwyn House Nursery from September 2016: Please note that there is no admissions relationship between Godwyn House Nursery and Liverpool College. The allocation of a place in Godwyn House Nursery does not guarantee a place in the Reception Class at Liverpool College. This is a separate application process and places will be allocated using the reception class admissions process.

    Please click here to download the request form.

    Please click here to download the information booklet for 2016-2017.

    After a careful review of the operations and medium term strategy of the College, the governors of Liverpool College have  reluctantly endorsed a decision that this academic year will be the last year of the operations of Godwyn House Nursery. Therefore we will not be accepting any further applications for Godwyn House Nursery. 

     


    About Godwyn House Nursery

    We strive to provide a happy, secure environment where the children feel valued as individuals and develop a positive attitude towards learning. Children are encouraged to ask questions and to develop lively and enquiring minds. We have high expectations and aim to foster a sense of pride in their achievements.

    There is a morning and afternoon Nursery class in the Department. There is an excellent staffing ratio with a Nursery Nurse supporting the teacher in both Nursery classes. There is a balance of age, gender and ability within each Nursery class.

    Pupils are taught by individual teaching, group teaching or class teaching, whichever is the most appropraite for the task in hand.

    The early years are critical in terms of successful intellectual, creative, social, emotional, physical and spiritual development. It is our aim to provide a solid foundation on which all future learning is based.

    By the time children leave the Nursery, we would expect they would:

    • Demonstrate friendly behaviour, and feel confident to initiate conversations and form good relationships with other children and familiar adults
    • Move freely and with pleasure and confidence
    • Be aware that print carries meaning and attempt mark making independently
    • Listen to stories with increasing attention and enjoyment and handle books carefully
    • Know information can be found in books
    • Use some number names and mathematical language accurately in play and show an interest in numerals in the environment
    • Show an interest in representing numbers
    • Show care and concern for living things and the environment

    Godwyn House Nursery is situated in the Pre-Prep, which has its own secure building with play areas at the front and rear.


    Curriculum

    We have a carefully planned curriculum based on the Early Years Foundation Stage in Nursery. We aim to extend children whenever possible whilst supporting those who need extra help.

    There is a focus on the Prime Areas initially, these are Personal, Social and Emotional Development, Communication and Language and Physical Development.

    Also as we are laying the foundations for all the children's future learning, literacy and numeracy assume a high profile.

    Careful planning takes place at every stage and records of children's development and achievement are kept.

    In Godwyn House Nursery, there is a balance of structured activities and free play throughout the curriculum. Developing children's social skills is a major part of the Nursery curriculum. The skills necessary to become a proficient reader are also given a high priority. We use a multi-sensory system called Jolly Phonics to develop the children's phonological understanding.

    Good working habits are established and high standards of work and behaviour are expected.

    The Sixth Form Experience

    Our Sixth Form is about more than taking A level courses. We aim to provide pupils with a breadth of experiences and challenges which will allow them to develop into independent learners with a passion for further study and the skills to lead others. We do this through careful guidance and mentoring by a committed and caring staff and a rigorous and challenging curriculum which includes experiences in and out of the classroom. Some people call these “soft skills”. They are not easily measured or described in league tables and inspection reports. But it is the development of those skills, the Learning with Character, which makes two years in our Sixth Form a transformational experience for so many pupils.

  • State Boarding at Liverpool College

    Liverpool College is a boarding school.

    We offer boarding for pupils 15 years or older as a member of the State Boarding School Association (SBSA).

    To download our Boarding Brochure please click here.  If you would like one sending out please contact us.

    Boarding provides a unique experience giving pupils an excellent opportunity to develop independence, maturity and community living skills.

    Our boarders are ambitious and focused on achieving their best in their studies.

    Our boarding house is a friendly and supportive environment. It is a home away from home for a diverse and committed group of pupils and staff. The staff support and encourage each pupil to achieve the best academic outcomes and to participate fully in everything Liverpool College has to offer.

    Our boarding house is located next to our campus in Derby Hall. Facilities consist of large and comfortable single or twin rooms. In addition, the boarding house has communal rooms for relaxation, study, and snacking.

    Boarders share meals in our dining room, excursions, and activities together, Most of all, they are part of a close knit community where they are known and supported. Our last inspection rated boarding as excellent. Read our boarding inspection report here.
     

    What is a State Boarding School and how much does it cost?

    There are 38 state boarding schools in the country. They offer free education and only charge for boarding. Because of this, the boarding fees we charge are less than 50% of those charged by private fee paying schools.
