Each week the Principal writes to the school. Here are extracts from those letters which we feel may be of relevance and interest to The Lerpoolians

"Ms Cassidy and other leaders have done a great job creating bubbles, and Covid-safe ways to work and learn together on campus. Pupils are responding well to these measures."
"The campus is quite altered. The four new Prep School classrooms
are in use. They are bright, well-lit and the verandah or porch alludes to American cabin architecture which I enjoy. There are huge windows and lots of light. When we finish the landscaping around it, this sylvan idyll will be a charming place to learn and play. Thank you to our donors and the Liverpool College Foundation for providing the substantial funds needed to undertake this project."
"Our boarders are finally on campus. Despite Covid delays, the contractor allowed us to welcome boarders. It is a thrill to finally have boarders on campus living in Beechlands
, a beautiful completely refurbished boarding house. One of our aims for this term is to try to begin the Day Boarding Programme
within the context of the Covid safety measures. Next year, we will begin boarding from Year 7 and
pupils will be able to board from ages 11-18."
"One of the exciting developments in our school is the growth of our teaching training course. This year 22 young people are training to become teachers with us. There are some extraordinary implications from this development. The first is the rapid growth of the College as the place where teachers are trained to teach Classics. No less than six future Classics teachers are training with us."
"We are coordinating their education with schools as far afield as Shrewsbury and Durham. The fact is that Liverpool College is THE place north of the Watford Gap where people can train to become Classics teachers.
Another encouraging development is the number of OLs who train with us, thereby keeping the tradition and continuity of our school alive and embodied in our school. Ms Brooke in the Prep was the first OL to train this way and join our staff. Miss Evans, who trained with us last year, has joined as a Spanish teacher and hockey coach. Peter Convery and Alex Pye, who one feels just left the school, are back, armed with top degrees, and ready to join the teaching profession. Very exciting."
"The School's Founders’ Day preparations are somewhat surreal. Friday 9 October will be a normal school day but our Chaplain is putting together an online service which will pay tribute to the history of our school and especially its mission. It is really amazing how creative people become in these circumstances."
