Careers Fair

Liverpool College pupils got an important glimpse into the world of work this week when they participated in a careers and providers fair. Open to all pupils from Y9, Y10 and Y12, volunteers from a wide range of professions gave the pupils an opportunity to learn about their chosen field and the qualifications and skills required to flourish in that sector. The fair included educational providers, businesses and individual professionals. In total, 38 exhibitors were in attendance at the event. This included an author, doctor, engineer, civil servant, MP, marketing manager, solicitor, case worker, Judge, optometrist, software designer, cloud infrastructure manager, banker, analyst and the assistant director of child services. Also represented at the event was the army, police, civil service, NHS, social welfare and the institute of mechanical engineers. We also were delighted to welcome to the event the National Apprenticeship Service, Edge Hill, LIPA, Myerscough College, Hope Academy, St Helens College, LMA Institute for media, music and performing arts, The Studio, Liverpool University and the University of Central Lancashire. It was delightful to see the pupils and students so interested and engaged throughout the event, asking insightful questions and expressing and developing their aspirations for the future. Our thanks to Mrs Doran and Mrs Drew for organising the event.

Sensational Science Workshop

Using ingredients only found in the average household, Year 7 Wilton Scholars were treated to a superb Science exploration workshop this week to stretch and develop their understanding of displacement, non-Newtonian fluids, air pressure and chemical reactions. Pupils predicted outcomes and theorised unusual results. They then needed to apply these concepts to alternative experiments that required them to stretch and challenge their thinking.

During the half term holiday, forty-two pupils have spent six days on a sports trip to the Spanish capital of Madrid. The trip consisted of four training sessions at the Real Madrid training ground being coached by some of the best academy coaches in the world.

The pupils also enjoyed six matches in Madrid, a training session at a local grassroots club, a walk around the parks of Madrid, a visit to a shopping centre and a meal in a city centre restaurant. The behaviour of the pupils was exemplary throughout the trip which impressed the staff and coaches of Real Madrid. This was a dream trip that pupils will never forget.
