This week students at Alsop High School launched their new promotional film, in the presence of the Lord Mayor of Liverpool, Councilor Peter Brennan. The short film celebrates that Alsop is #MoreThanASchool.
This year Alsop celebrates its centenary and the centenary working group worked alongside the school council and consulted extensively with the students to develop a strategy to engage and reach out to the north Liverpool community.
The students wanted to communicate a shared vision that Alsop is more than just a school and that togetherness is at the heart of the school community. They wanted to inspire young people to achieve and promote a culture that challenges low aspirations, builds self-esteem and promotes the “Yes, I can do it” mentality.
The film launch took place during a special assembly, to welcome Mr Chris Wilson as headteacher of Alsop. The assembly included readings and musical items with the theme of working together for the common good.
During the assembly, the Lord Mayor of Liverpool formally welcomed Mr Wilson to Liverpool. He told the assembled students that he hoped that “Mr Wilson will receive a warm welcome and that soon he will feel at home in our city.”
Headteacher Mr Wilson, said: “We are thrilled with the film. It reinforces ‘the Alsop way.’ It demonstrates that through teamwork, our students’ journey along a pathway to academic excellence. The words are the thoughts expressed by Alsop students and they demonstrate our school goes the extra mile to support and nurture all members of the school community.”
