Alder Hey Visit

As part of our activities to mark National Apprenticeship Week (3 - 7 March 2014) a group of our Year 11 students were invited by the Construction Industry Training Board (CITB) and developer Laing O'Rourke to visit the site of the new £250 million Alder Hey Children's Hospital in West Derby.

The afternoon was filled with presentations from young apprentices from a variety of different trades including joinery, general construction, quantity surveying and engineering.

Our students were given a tour of the site and CITB representatives then gave a presentation about how to apply for apprenticeships, the testing procedures they use and the opportunities currently available.

The boys had a great time and we'd like to thank both CITB and Laing O'Rourke for this valuable experience.

Bible Quote

“Praise the Lord because he is good.  His faithful love will last forever.”
Psalm 136:1

Word of the Week

Machiavellian (adjective)

Subject which uses this term: English Literature; Drama; History; Politics

Meaning: cunning, scheming, and unscrupulous.

For example: ‘Mrs Lyons is Machiavellian. She manipulates Mrs Johnstone into giving up her baby. She uses Mrs Johnstone’s superstitious nature to ensure she gets what she wants.’

MRS. LYONS: You do know what they say about twins, secretly parted, don’t you?


MRS. LYONS: They say…they say that if either twin learns that he once was a pair, that they shall both immediately die. It means, Mrs. Johnstone, that these brothers shall grow up, unaware of the other’s existence. They shall be raised apart and never, ever told what was once the truth. You won’t tell anyone about this, Mrs. Johnstone, because if you do, you will kill them."

Thought for the Week


"Don't be afraid! I am here with good news for you, which will bring great joy to all the people."
