Y9 Hockey Team in Devastating Form at Wyncote

On Monday afternoon, the Year 9 Hockey team displayed some outstanding performances against Greenbank and Merchant Taylors in order to retain their title as Year 9 Tournament winners.

Playing 40 minute matches, Liverpool College convincingly beat Greenbank 4-0 with some fine performances from Ciara P, Georgia B, Isabella H and Alex S . They then went on to play Merchant Taylors who had earlier beat Greenbank 5-0. This was a crucial match and one in which they knew would be challenging from the start. With strong leadership from Libby H, they were up 2-0 by half time. The committed squad also allowed the College to continuously keep pressure on their opposition and with the College defence, led by the experienced Abi A, Merchants were unable to keep the ball in their own half for most of the game. This led to a further 3 goals being scored through sheer determination, speed and skill both on and off the ball. Superb performances from Fern P-C, Jessica A, Evie H and Sadie T enabled Liverpool College to convincingly win 5-0.

Many thanks must also go to their coaches Miss McLindon and Miss Arnold.


Golf versus Old Lerpoolians

On a warm October afternoon yesterday the Old Lerpoolians played the College at Childwall Golf Club for the annual Andrew Barr Trophy which was retained by the OLs.

Fantastic Senior Netball Team

The senior netball team was superb at Wednesday’s city tournament at Archbishop Blanch.

The team captained by Emily C lost the first match 10-6 to Blue Coat - despite a brave second half fight back. The second match versus Archbishop Blanch turned out to be one of the matches of the tournament with both teams cancelling each other out until Emily C secured a vital 4-3 win for the College. The final match was equally impressive with Liverpool College twice coming back to draw 2-2 with St Edwards College, thanks largely to the impressive Yasmin G. The students produced three passionate performances and represented the College superbly portraying the Lerpoolian standard with their excellent attitude. 

Outstanding Performances: Emily C (Howson’s) and Yasmin G (Brook’s).

Should Lewis Hamilton Be Afraid?

A group of Year 12 and Year 13 Boarders took to the race track on Sunday to try out their driving skills at Team Sport’s Go-Karting track in Liverpool. They raced each other in time trials and felt the adrenaline rush as they powered around the track. All kitted out in balaclavas and racing helmets they really looked the part and can’t wait to go again - after Farmageddon next week, that is!


120 Pupils Involved in Saturday Sport

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!


Talk for Teaching

Teachers at Liverpool College continually share the love of their subject and inspire their pupils to be the best they can be. Last year across the school, we taught nearly 70,000 lessons. Classroom teachers clocked up on average a thousand hours in front of pupils. We share all of this good work with all of our pupils every day, but only very rarely do we share it with each other.

This year is different. Each day a teacher invites three of their colleagues into their classroom. We get to see how our fellow teachers organise their classroom, engage the students and impart their knowledge. We then talk. We share what we have learnt.

For the first time, great teaching can inspire not only great learning, but also more great teaching.
