Last Friday afternoon saw the visit of St Andrews, Argentina for a game against our 1st and 2nd XV rugby team.
All involved knew it would be tough challenge to compete with one of the best rugby schools in Argentina.
Our visitors put on a display of mesmerising rugby and won both games comfortably, however our boys never gave up, showed lots of resilience and were competitive in many areas including the scrum and tackle area.
All would agree that although we were beaten the experience and 'lessons learned' were most valuable.
A special mention must go to the 1st XV side who then got up early on Saturday morning to play Bolton School and came from 19-0 down to win 38-26. What a outstanding effort!
Pictured are the Captains from both the rugby and hockey sides that played last Friday.
The current parent governors have completed their four-year terms of office. We therefore need to hold elections to replace them.
Liverpool College pupils are celebrating the best GCSE results in living memory.
Despite the introduction of more difficult GCSEs in maths, English language and English literature, progress and attainment are both substantially up.
Incredibly, 95% of all pupils passed maths, 96% passed English literature or language, and 79% and 91% did so at the strong pass level respectively. This achievement is even more remarkable in the context of the government proclaiming these GCSEs more challenging than in previous years. 65% of pupils achieved the Ebacc, the highest ever, and 60% achieved it with the government’s new “strong pass” target.
Because of the new complexity of the GCSE system, it now requires a person with a first class Oxbridge Maths degree to calculate the progress and attainment of pupils. Fortunately Mr Evans, our data manager, meets these requirements and he has already established that overall attainment rose substantially, and progress for the cohort was better than expected. Elisha R was one of the standout performers achieving 8A*s equivalents, including two 9s in English language and literature, the grade which has been described by educationalists as “impossible”.
The vast majority of our pupils will join our thriving and successful sixth form. We congratulate all our pupils on their great achievements. Thanks must also go to our dedicated teaching and support staff who have worked tirelessly and with total conviction to support, inspire, and teach our pupils.
A-level candidates at Liverpool College are once again celebrating excellent and improving results.
63% of all grades were A*-B, and the percentage of grades at A* and A was higher than last year. Just under 1/3 of all grades were A* or A. 16 pupils achieved straight As and A*s. Attainment and progress, as measured by the various accountability tables, are both up overall. It is particularly pleasing that overall pupils made even more progress than our cohort last year, despite the changes to the examination system.
There were some stellar individual performances. Jack Agate achieved an incredible 4 A*s including in his EPQ on his way to do mechanical engineering at Bath University. Andrew Pennie achieved 3 A* grades on his way to read electrical engineering in Sheffield.
But it is not only in these top grades that should be celebrated. Some pupils achieved and progressed brilliantly from their starting points, including Adam Gilboy, Tayla Brack and Cai Wyn Taylor who all joined us in Year 12; their stories are perhaps even more inspiring.
These results reaffirm the excellence of our sixth form and are testament to the outstanding teaching which drives our pupils’ success.
Congratulations to all.
