Easter revision

We want to congratulate all our year 11 pupils on successfully attending Easter revision school. We are pleased to report record numbers attended over the two weeks. Keep up the good revision in preparation for your GCSE exams. As we can see, our pupils had a well deserved break during the session.

Sixth Form Taster Day

The Year 10 Sixth form tasters take place on Tuesday 10th and Friday 13th July. On these days students will have a realistic experience of sixth form education and spend the day as a sixth former. Students will wear sixth form uniform and will have full access to the sixth form centre. All students will choose up to 4 subjects form their appropriate pathway and be involved in enrichment activities. The Year 10 tasters are used to broaden the experiences of the students and allow them to start to think about realistic choices in the sixth form and beyond. Also, in conjunction with this, a group of 45 students will visit the Liverpool Museum as an additional enrichment activity

Year 10 Business Breakfast

Students met with managers from differing business sectors across the Merseyside region and discussed how they managed to reach their job and any barriers they have faced along the way.

The girls also celebrated International Women's Day with their Business mentors.

Realising Ambition- Anne Frank Trust

Over 800 students from years 7-11 have been involved in the Realising Ambition programme with the Anne Frank Trust over the last two weeks. Supported by our team of 20 year 8 peer guides, trained by the Anne Frank Trust ,our students learnt about the Anne frank story in detail whilst also finding out about the historical events which effected the citizens of Europe during this period . We were also very lucky to welcome Faye an 86 year old lady originally from Gdansk ( formerly the free city of Danzig in Poland) , who came to Liverpool as an 11 year old as part of the Kindertransport- a rescue mission that took place during the nine months prior to the outbreak of the second world war. The United Kingdom took in nearly 10,000 predominantly Jewish children from Nazi Germany, Austria, Czechoslovakia, Poland and the Free City of Danzig. The children were placed in British foster, hostels, schools and farms. Often they were the only members of their families who survived the Holocaust.

6 of our peer guides have now been offered the opportunity to train as ambassadors for the Trust- which would involve them visiting local schools and libraries to share their knowledge of the Anne frank story-, a great development opportunity for our students, as they join a growing group of ambassadors worldwide as the Anne frank trust has branches throughout the world.

Thank you to all our staff for their support over the last two weeks
