Vitality Netball World Cup
On Friday 12th July we took a group of 30 students to see the Vitality Netball World Cup which was held at the M & S Arena Liverpool. The students were truly amazed by the high level of skill displayed in the matches and the height of some of the goal keepers! (Sri Lanka Goal Keeper 40 year old Tharjini Sivalingam 6ft 10 inches) Not only was the trip inspiring for its top class Netball, the girls were given a fantastic cultural experience by seeing all the competitors from around the world and taking part in the singing and dancing led by the dedicated and passionate Zimbabwe supporters who were raising the roof of the stadium. A great day had by all.

Year 7, 8, 9 and 10 students have been competing in the Liverpool Schools Rounder’s League held at Calderstones Phil Gibbons playing fields every Thursday. The girls showed excellent commitment and dedication by practising as a team and playing to the best of their ability out on the pitch. Every week the made excellent progress with both skill and tactical awareness. Well done to all students who participated.

Staff V Year 11 Wellbeing Matches
During the stressful and busy exam time we organised staff v Year 11 Volleyball and Rounders matches during Year 11 well-being week to give the students some down time and fun. Both students and staff thoroughly enjoyed themselves, it was lovely to see everyone smiling and laughing during such a stressful period of the term.
On Monday 4th March 2019 we were extremely thrilled to be asked to be the first ever ‘ball girls’ at Anfield Stadium for the Liverpool V Everton Derby U23’s match. We took 9 of our Year 7, 8, 9, 10 and 11 students who attended Football Club after school along to Anfield where they stood proudly around the pitch collecting ball for the players. This was a fantastic opportunity for our students who will always remember this amazing experience. Well done girls, you did us proud!
