Festive Celebrations at St George’s Hall

posted by Lucy Forster December 18, 2019 0 comments

On 17 December, the FHS community gathered at the iconic St George’s Hall in Liverpool to hold their annual Christmas Celebration event.  The evening was a wonderful celebration of the amazing musical talent of students across our school and our feeder primaries and featured vocal, choral, orchestral performances.  Of course, the audience were not only entertained but called upon to join in with  Christmas carols.  The venue was a fitting setting for a performance of such quality and celebration – a very big well done to everyone involved in the event… and of course to all who joined us.

Year 7 Panto a huge hit!

posted by Lucy Forster December 13, 2019 0 comments

What an end of year treat for all our community!  The 2019 Year 7 panto production of Cinderella has proved to be a massive hit with sell-out audiences this week.  With a cast of over 100 Year 7 students who have only been in high school since September strutting the stage with confidence, flair and humour, the performance is an absolute delight.  The production carries us away to Formbyonia where the wicked Baroness and her daughters, Chantelle and Jordan, are doing all they can do to stop poor Cinderella going to the ball. An absolutely massive well done Year 7 and to the Drama team, supporting staff and Tech Crew for another magical end to the Autumn term!

Emily returns to Inspire Young Writers

posted by Lucy Forster December 12, 2019 0 comments

Former FHS student, Emily Merrill, kindly came to meet with Year 13 English Language and Literature students this week to talk to them about her experiences as a writer. The students have to write their own short stories as part of their coursework and Emily was on hand with advice and suggestions for them. Emily, who has just had her first novel ‘Mine’ published in November, was very keen to encourage the aspirations of future writers at FHS. She said, “All the way through my time at FHS I aspired to be a writer (I remember asking one of the English teachers to give me some feedback on my short stories at the time!), and wanted the opportunity to come back to the school and speak to students who may have the same aspirations.” We are incredibly grateful to Emily for giving her time back to FHS and want to wish her continued success in the literary world!
