We were delighted and privileged to welcome the Premier League Trophy to Birkdale. The visit was kindly donated by a Birkdale parent and all pupils and staff at both the Prep and Senior Schools thoroughly enjoyed the day. There were lots of photographs and selfies taken!
The day began with a fantastic football themed assembly by Mr Clark, where the Trophy was proudly paraded in by the security guards who accompany the Trophy wherever it goes. We were provided with interesting facts and figures about the Trophy followed by a quiz which Mr O'Toole won.
The Trophy was then taken to the Prep School where our younger pupils gasped in awe when the Trophy was revealed. There was only one Leicester City fan at the Prep school who was thrilled to have his photograph taken with the Trophy which his team won last season! All of the boys thoroughly enjoyed Mr Burch's assembly which focused on perseverance and were excellent in answering his football related questions.
