Employee of the Year

Congratulations to Mr Mike Coombs, our busy catering manager. Mr Coombs' employer P and A Catering have selected him from among their more than 400 employees as Employee of the Year.

Mike has been recognized for his cheerfulness, enthusiasm for innovation, ability to grow and expand catering (in the past decade he opened three additional kitchens in the College and built an excellent catering service for our boarders as well). Even today he met with our Prep School pupils to announce what he would be doing to improve recycling and reduce the environmental footprint of our service.

Well done to Mike and to all his great team for this honour.

Prep Charity Champions

A massive thank you to everyone who brought in sponsorship for our Race for Life. Together, we raised an unbelievable and staggering amount of £6109.22

All donations were greatly appreciated and it was incredibly inspirational to see pupils work together in form teams to make sure they raised as much money as possible for Cancer Research UK, a charity dedicated to saving lives. Your generosity has been overwhelming. It was clear talking to the students that this is a charity very close to their hearts.

The form Charity Champions prize went to 5P, narrowly winning thanks to a last minute envelope, aptly labelled ‘To help the ones who need it most.’ As a thank you, they were rewarded with a CRUK collection bucket - literally filled to the top with sweets!

Form champions were:
3P Isaac, 3Q Alexa, 3R Evelyn, 4P Bailie, 4Q Ava, 5P Aimee & Finn, 5Q Rose, 6P Alexander Y and Luke, 6Q Mary.

My sincere thanks to every single person who brought in donations. Every penny raised will make a difference. You are all my heroes.

Madrid Football Development Tour

A week before the Champions League Final in Madrid, 67 pupils from Liverpool College travelled to the Spanish capital on a Football Development Tour. This exciting trip enabled many pupils to fulfil their childhood dreams by spending four training sessions at the first team training ground of Real Madrid. These four ninety minute training sessions in glorious sunshine consisted of the pupils being given a number of high intensity drills from the academy coaches of Real Madrid.

Whilst in Madrid, the pupils played a number of matches versus local opposition, in which the College won two and drew two matches. The pupils also visited the stadiums of giants Real Madrid and 2019 Champions League Final hosts Atletico Madrid.

The trip will certainly live long in the memory of the young people of Liverpool College.

Fundraising Triumph!

Congratulations to Mr Farnan whose inspiring Chapel talks and running fundraising this term has raised a fantastic £1347 for the Alzheimer’s Society.

In loving memory of his grandfather, Bud, who battled with Vascular Dementia, Mr Farnan decided to sign up for the Liverpool Rock and Roll Half Marathon raising over £670 in sponsorship for the Alzheimer’s Society. He also recruited the help and support of pupils by raising money through this half term’s house competition “Guess the sweets to win the jar of treats”. Mr Farnan also raised awareness of Alzheimer’s and the work of the Alzheimer’s Society through a series of Chapel talks.

Congratulations to Jack J in Year 9 Selwyn’s who won the sweets competition with his guess of 335 sweets and a special thank you to Emily (Y9 Selwyn’s) for her remarkably generous donation and to all the pupils who helped raise a further £679 for the Alzheimer’s Society over the past few weeks.

Walk to School Protest

Thank you to everyone who supported and took part in the Prep School Walk to School Protest, in support of Walk to School Week.

The pupils made some fantastic banners, partnered with poignant chants to promote walking to school, the park and stride initiative and keeping our zigzags clear. With the musical help of Mr Ainscough, the pupils even performed an original song, which really helped get the message across. There was even a guest appearance from the Walk to School mascot, Strider.

Already, there has been a massive reduction in the number of cars parking so close to school. Please continue to promote and enforce the important message underpinning our protest and help to keep our pupils, and our school, safe.
