A Warm Reception on Open Night!
Sep 20, 2018

We offered a warm reception to the hundreds of people who braved the inclement weather to join us on our Year 6 Open Evening!

Despite the rain we enjoyed a packed house as parents and students came to find out more about what it means to be part of the St. Julie's School Community, with standing room only for the Headteacher's presentation.

All departments staged fun activities and were available to engage with our visitors. Guests got frizzy hair and held flames in the science department, crafted pizza and explored manufacturing in technology, stretched their vocal chords in music and their mental arithmetic in the maths department. Some visitors even got their dimensions measured to see how the ratio of their height to span could influence their proclivity for kleptomania!

We'd like to thank everybody who made the journey to come to see us, and we hope to welcome many of our visitors back next September as St. Julie's students!


Primary Performing Arts Project Takes Flight
Sep 19, 2018

This week saw the launch of the St. Julie's Primary Performing Arts Project designed to engage and encourage the arts in our local Primary Schools.

The project is being delivered by the Performing Arts Department at St. Julie's at no cost to our Primary School colleagues, and the launch session included an interactive training workshop with demonstration ideas on how to approach, explore and combine dance, drama and music using methodologies that allow delivery either as extra curricular clubs, stand alone lessons or fully integrated into a blended curriculum.

We'd like to offer a big congratulations to our guests for their fantastic engagement with the project, and a hearty thank you to our volunteer Performing Arts ambassadors who hugely enjoyed sharing their talents with our local school partners.

We're very much looking forward to developing our partnerships further of the coming year with some very exciting projects lined up for the near future.


Drama Students Analyse Blood Brothers
Sep 19, 2018

Hard on the heels of our English trip, Drama students have made a trip to the St. Helen's Royal Theatre production of Blood Brothers from a slightly different perspective.

The GCSE students were able to make observations on the performance and technical aspects of the production as well as gaining a lively insight into the narrative. 

The students were lucky enough to catch 'Mickey' by the stage door before the performance to give their best wishes for a great show.


Hundreds Answer The Casting Call!
Sep 16, 2018

Our hard working cleaning team faced an unusual challenge on Friday evening as they set about their usual task of making the corridors sparkle only to find students just about everywhere!

The casting call had gone out for the Christmas Showcase and whilst demand to be a part of the show is always high this year saw 200 Year 7 and 8 students - that's more than half of each year group - request an audition.

Although it was a big task, all students were assessed in multiple disciplines, including singing, dancing and acting, and the Performing Arts team want to commend everybody who came along for their hard work, their energy and their enthusiasm. It was particularly pleasing to see such a wonderful uptake from those students in Year 7 who have been with us for just two weeks.

The team now have some difficult decisions to make and we'll look forward to announcing our cast soon. Watch this space!

 


Year 12 Do Some Blue Sky Thinking
Sep 14, 2018

Year 12 students have reached for the sky as they pitched new airline ideas as part of a Liverpool John Moores Workshop. 

The event was the first session of our new Year 12 enrichment programme, and saw a team from John Moores University engaging the students in a series of talks and practical activities, covering subjects including:

  • - Differences between GCSE and A Level, including: becoming a more autonomous learner; taking responsibility
  • - Progression pathways to university
  • - Planning time effectively e.g. balancing work, life, relationships and studies
  • - Team building activities (how to pitch a business idea) to help form friendships with new students and to encourage collaboration of individuals that may not have worked together previously.

 Thanks very much to the LJMU team for coming to see us!


Year 11 Visit 'Blood Brothers'
Sep 13, 2018

A group of 118 Year 11 students headed to St. Helen's Theatre Royal to see Willy Russell's hit musical, 'Blood Brothers' this week.

All GCSE students study 'Blood Brothers' as part of their English Literature exam, and so it was brilliant to be able to see it performed live.

We are so proud of our students for being polite, well-mannered and excellent representatives of our school. We hope they enjoyed the show - and not too many tears were shed in the final scene!


St. Julie's Student Represents GB!
Sep 11, 2018

We send all of our best wishes to Year 13 student Emily Pyper as she represents Great Britain in the Under 19 European Championships in Water Polo.

This is closely followed be her representing the City of Liverpool in the EU Nations Club Championships.

The action is nailbiting at the tournament in Funchal in Portgual, and Team GB have so far won one, lost one and drawn one.

Keep up to speed with all the action at the tournament website.


The Big Sing Resumes
Sep 7, 2018

On the first Friday of each month, before the school day starts in earnest, students and staff gather by the statue of St. Julie for Hymns Old and New.  

The First Friday Band led the congregation in an old hymn dating back to the days of the American Civil War - Mine Eyes Have Seen The Glory of the Coming of the Lord.   These were the words with which Martin Luther King concluded his final speech in 1968.  The exuberant rock and roll version played today certainly woke everyone up and got them in the mood for a wonderful day.

Continuing the Civil Rights theme, the other hymn was We Shall Overcome which was most famously sung on the Freedom March on Washington in 1963.  This deeply spiritual hymn drew everyone into a feeling of unity with those who had gone before.

Thanks to all for being there especially some of our new Year 7 students along with our Performing Arts Ambassadors and 1804 Society.


Building Bridges With Summer Work
Sep 6, 2018

While we encourage all our students to get some rest, relaxation and fun during the Summer, it's often all too easy to spend the entire six weeks without picking up a pen, and that can sometimes prevents students from getting the smoothest start to the new academic year.

Instead, we make sure that students leave with bridging work which helps to keep their skills honed, as well as introducing some expecations of new structures and standards if students will be starting new courses.

This year Mr Radburn was very pleased to get some excellent work back from students moving into Year 8 who demonstrated some great skill in colour toning with different media and realising coherent design elements in their DT work.

Well done Year 8!


Grounds For Success!
Sep 6, 2018

The long anticipated second phase of our building work is almost at completion and we hope that you agree that the results have been worth the wait.

Looking over our new tennis and netball courts, the uninitiated observer would have no idea that the old school buildings once stood there, such is the degree of transformation.

Students have already been very quick to take advantage of the expanded play and recreation areas, which include the planting of our olive grove which surrounds the lower yard and forms the basis of our Mediterranean peace garden.

As our works reach completion we would like to once again extend our thanks to our neighbours for their patience, kindness and tolerance during the construction of this wonderful resource that will help us to better serve our community.
