Boarders House Football

Our boarders took the house competition spirit into the weekend with an indoor house football match on Sunday evening.

There were house points to be won as each student that scored a goal claimed 3 points for their house.

After a fantastic effort by all the participants, the final house points scoreboard for the match was:

Brook’s – 24 House Points
School – 18
Howard’s – 9
Selwyn’s – 6
Howson’s – 3


1st XV advance in the NatWest Vase

The first team travelled to local rivals St Edwards for the first round of the NatWest Vase Competition on Wednesday afternoon. St Edwards took an early 3-0 lead (penalty) against the run of play but Liverpool replied in forceful fashion, driving over a maul from a well-executed line out play. Vice-captain Rhys H (Howson’s) was on hand at the back of the maul to place the ball down over the line. Liverpool dominated the first half and very rarely did St Edwards venture into Liverpool’s half. A second try soon came about, when attacking wide play ended up with Chris F (School) being tackled high, just before he would have touched down for a try, resulting in the referee awarding a penalty try.

Half Time 3-12

It was a similar start with the 2nd half, Liverpool dominating especially at the set piece. Another try soon came about after good handling skills, Pieter B (Brook’s) finishing off in the corner. Credit to St Edwards as they showed lots of determination and started to play some good rugby. Against the run of play, Captain Adam M (Howson’s) found a small gap and capitalised to go over for another try. Tiredness and a change in personnel (due to injury) gave St Edwards confidence to play attacking rugby and they scored two tries in quick succession. Penalties and silly tactical errors from Liverpool, enabled St Edwards the opportunity to camp in Liverpool’s half and another drive over the line put St Edwards within one try, with two minutes to play. Liverpool held out to secure in the end, a narrow 26-32 victory. A very pleasing first half but plenty room for improvement for the boys (including fitness) in the next few weeks.

Man of the match – Michael C (Selwyn’s)


Pre Prep Officially Open!

We were delighted to welcome Mayor Joe Anderson OBE and Cllr Barbara Murray (Cabinet Member for Education) to the College today to officially open the new Pre Prep building.

In addition to ‘cutting the ribbon’, Mayor Anderson and other guests, including members of the Liverpool College Foundation and Governing Body, had the opportunity to tour the new facilities, speak to staff and pupils and see them “in action” in their new classrooms.

All our visitors were impressed with the purpose, passion and challenge they saw in the learning taking place and in the pride our pupils had in their work and in their school. 


Upcoming PTA Events

The PTA plays a vital role in the school community and all parents and carers are automatically members. The PTA is primarily about raising funds to provide facilities and equipment which support the school and advance the education of all pupils, but through our fundraising activities we develop good relationships, and friendships, between parents and staff, and also have a lot of fun!

Annual PTA Wine Tasting Evening (Friday 21 September, 7.30-10.30pm, Dining Room)

All parents are invited to the PTA’s first event of the school year - the wine tasting quiz.

Tickets cost £12.50 each (over 18s only) and please email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. with requests for tickets. Tickets must be bought in advance for catering purposes.

Everyone is welcome to a night of fine wine, and fabulous company with a prize for the most discerning palate!

AGM (Wednesday 26 September, 7pm, Dining Room)

One of the main purposes of the AGM is for parents to elect the PTA Committee for the forthcoming year. Our school has grown substantially in recent years and to reflect this we are asking more parents to step forward to elected roles. The main roles and their core purpose are:

• Chair – provide leadership, make all members welcome, set the agenda and ensure the committee fulfils it’s role.
• Secretary – Organise meetings, take minutes and distribute, keep accurate records.
• Treasurer – Manage accounts and financial records.
• Communication – maintaining and developing website, social media and publicity.

In addition to these elected committee members, we need 8 elected ordinary members, as School Reps. These should be 2 from Pre prep, 2 from Prep, 2 from Years 7-9 and 2 from Years 10-13. The roles will include organising school relevant events (such as discos), engaging with parent volunteers and relevant staff.

Anyone willing to stand for election for any post should send an email expression of interest to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. by Saturday 22 September 2018, detailing the role they wish to take and which year(s) their child/children are in.

If you would like any further information about what is involved in any of the roles, please email Alice at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..

Record Year 7 Open Morning

A record number of visitors braved the weather conditions on Saturday to attend our final open event for those pupils and parents who are interested in joining the school in September 2019.

It is a credit to our pupils that so many volunteer to guide ever larger groups around the campus and tell the story of what “being a Lerpoolian” is really like. We receive so many compliments about our pupils and our staff on these occasions.

If you were not able to attend the open events and are interested in Year 7 entry in 2019, you can download the information booklet and other admission forms from our website here.
