Year 10 Win the Lancashire Plate!

Congratulations are due to our Year 10 rugby team who have brought home the 2015 Lancashire Plate, after an incredibly tough game against a well organised and hard hitting Blackburn side.

The final was a fantastic game, played in brilliant spirit. Both teams took turns at taking the lead and every one of our 17 man squad played superbly in both attack and defence.

Even the opposition coach praised our boys after the game for their performance and for the way in which they conducted themselves when decisions went against them.

It was an outstanding sports performance, both during the game and outside of it, and every one of the boys should be praised for their part in it. They did themselves and the school proud.

Mr Phipps would also like to thank Mr Brown and Mr Cooper for their help with the coaching and transport.

Our trophy winning squad consisted of:

  • Ciaran Fairclough
  • Peter McCarthy
  • Jack Forest
  • Padraig Farrell
  • Ian Dunbavin
  • Mason Spencer
  • Tom Murphy
  • Bernard Fowler
  • James Evans
  • Tom Spike
  • James West
  • Reiss Carroll
  • Ethan Hughes
  • Callum Jones
  • Brandon Moore
  • Ryan McNee
  • Connor Quinn
  • Charlie Cunningham

Congratulations to you all!

Gifted and Talented Students Visit Goodison Park

This week, six of our Year 10 students were given the chance to spend the day at Goodison Park, as part of the Oxbridge Outreach Programme to raise aspirations among students applying to university.

The boys were part of a group of 340 gifted and talented students who came from across the North West to take part.

The students were treated to an introduction to applying to university and,  in particular, Cambridge University's Magdalene College.

Current and past students from Magdalene College gave a series of presentations in which they passed on their wisdom to the students and encouraged them to think about applying to the college. During the afternoon session, students were given the chance to sample lectures on History and Pharmacology.

As part of the day, the students were also taken on a tour of the stadium where they learnt about the excellent work carried out by Everton in the Community and the opportunities they offer to take part in voluntary work.

Over the next two years, this programme will offer other opportunities for students to access and we will look to involve more of our gifted and talented students in these events.

Following this event, Shaun McCormick in Year 12 will also attend a residential at Magdalene College and we look forward to reporting on his experiences there.
