Pupils from KS2 and KS3 took part in a superb event this week – the Digital Big Bang. For the past 5 years, the Big Bang Show has been a huge event which takes place in the Liverpool Exhibition centre. In current circumstances, the Big Bang Team were determined the show must go on – so they launched Big Bang Digital. This event involved 54 talks and digital workshops broadcast live over a 3-day period. Between Wednesday and Friday, ever hour both live events and on-demand content was broadcast. All events were designed to enable pupils to discover exciting possibilities and connect to inspiring role models in STEM. The events included young inventors and experimenters, future game-changers and lifesavers, politicians, activists, robotic engineers, chemists, environmentalists, meteorologists, engineers, programmers and scientists.
Videos of these talks will become available for on-demand access in the coming weeks for anyone who missed it! Details of this will be shared as soon as they are available.
Liverpool College has Finalists in every category!
We have just learnt six Liverpool College pupils were selected as winners for the Merseyside and Cheshire region in the Young Leaders Competition. As well as receiving a DISTINCTION shortlisted certificate, the pupils will also shortly have their work showcased in a Gallery. Their creativity and problem-solving skills will be exhibited in the Merseyside and Cheshire Gallery for all to see.
The Leaders Award competition posed the question "If you were an engineer, what would you do?" You can see previous entries at www.leadersaward.com. Every child in KS2 and Y7 was given an opportunity to participate this year, with KS3 Wilton Scholars and those attending Enterprise activities in the Upper School also asked to submit an entry. To participate, pupils had to identify a problem they had observed in real life, invent a solution to that problem, illustrate and annotate their creation, promote their product through a descriptive ‘Pitch Letter’ and meet a real engineer.
We have winners in every year group from Y4-Y7, which is a superb achievement and speaks to the high calibre of entries submitted by our pupils.
The Finalists were:

Liverpool College conducted its own G7 summit this half term. The event involved pupils across 3 key stages and every Prep School form had their own Youth 7 summit (known as Y7).
Pupils were able to discuss what they believed were priority areas for development and to decide upon recommendations that they would make, if they were Youth 7 delegates in G7. Mrs Doran launched the event with a presentation about G7, its history, its members and its fundamental aims. Pupils then worked in groups to brainstorm key ideas and selected their class delegates to present their ideas to the form. Working democratically, students then voted which of all the ideas they heard they felt were the most important.
Year group Youth 7 delegates will write a final communique and present their findings to a whole school Liverpool College G7 summit later in the year. Final recommendations will be presented to local politicians and eventually, emailed to our prime minister, Boris Johnson.
A superb event which introduced students to world politics.
Our first Y7 virtual exhibition is now live!
Explore a multi-sensory experience of fauvist inspired landscape painting and poetry readings from Year 7. Click here to access the gallery.
This is a binaural recording using a specific type of microphone. This technique enables you to capture a 3D sound, creating the illusion of being in the room with the performer or on location. So, for the best experience of the Y7 landscape exhibition, the audience is invited to wear headphones/earplugs when navigating the gallery space.
Thank you to Y7 Selwyn’s for the poetry reading.
