Foodbank House Shop

Senior School pupils supported a local foodbank this year in a slightly different way. A pupil from each house was nominated to attend the local ASDA superstore. The pupils were given £28 each (money raised through the Y7 House Run) to spend on tinned foods, biscuits and toiletries. The pupils paid for each item at the checkout before bagging the bought items and delivering them to the ASDA foodbank drop point. Each pupil who was representing their house was also awarded 5 house points.

Charity and service is a key component of the LCA+ curriculum

A Superb Win for the Year 7 Football Team

Last Thursday, the girls football team, fresh from a two day trial, played their first match in front of a large crowd of Liverpool College parents and friends versus St Barlow's.

The College started nervously and found themselves two goals down after ten minutes. Just before half time, the College scored two goals in a minute to draw level thanks to Giselle R and Anna R. The second half saw a confident Liverpool College pull ahead through an own goal before Anna R scored a superb goal to ensure the Year 7 team won their first ever match.

Year 11 Theatre Trip

Year 11 GCSE Drama pupils enjoyed a visit to The Everyman Theatre on Thursday afternoon to watch a performance of ‘The Lovely Bones’ based upon the novel by Alice Sebold. This captivating and traumatic story received a passionate response from Year 11 who were pleased to leave the theatre clutching a set of theatre evaluation notes. A reflection on live theatre performance will certainly prepare for them for the written examination in May and no doubt will leave a longer lasting impression on them.

Mrs Hall and Mrs Hayes were delighted to accompany the pupils who all demonstrated the Lerpoolian Standard with their immaculate uniform, conduct and attitude.

Careers Masterclass - TED talk by Medical Mavericks

The MV Hall was packed for the Careers Masterclass by Medical Mavericks during today’s NSI period. Medical Mavericks are described as one of the UK’s No 1 providers of Careers, STEM and Sports Science enrichment experience for schools.

This latest masterclass in our Careers and STEM programme was specifically designed for pupils considering a career in medicine, biomedical science, healthcare science, medical engineering, medical physics, physiology, dentistry or sports science.

Over 160 pupils from Year 7, 9-13 had requested to attend the talk and were completely engrossed during the session. Short video clips of various physiological tests that the consultant presenter had recorded, caused quite a stir as the pupils watched a camera being inserted into his lung and a sample of lung tissues taken. The interactive nature of the presentation resulted in two of our pupils being tested for growth; they were very pleased to be told they would in fact grow taller, even though one pupil only had another year of growth left! At the end of the talk one Sixth Former commented that he thought the talk was ‘brilliant’.

At the same time, our Year 8 pupils were taking part in an E-Safety talk with Megan Brickland, Digital Community Support Officer from Merseyside Police.
