A-Level Results

Posted 15th August 2019

A-Level Results

Congratulations to all LCS Year 13 students who received their A Level results today.

Littleover Community School is celebrating its best ever A level results. Over a third of grades were A*-A and nearly 2 thirds of grades were A*-B with 87% of grades being C or above. The average grade was a B. These results are a significant improvement on last year and represent a fantastic achievement for our students and it is great to see the hard work of students and staff rewarded.

Over half of students achieved at least one grade A with 80% of students achieving at least one grade B or above. 2 students achieved 4 A* grades and 4 students achieved 3 A* grades with 17% of students achieving 3 or more A*/A grades. Nearly half of all students achieved three Bs or better and the overall pass rate is 100%.

Although the number of high grades is very pleasing and enables a large number of students to access the most competitive universities, courses and apprenticeships, it is important to note that there are many students throughout the ability range who have, through sheer hard work as well as natural ability, matched or exceeded their target grades, and all deserve congratulations for their achievements.

Key Figures 2019
A* 8.3%
A*-A 34%
A*-B 62%
A*-C 87%
A*-D 96%
A*-E 100%
Avg Points per Entry 39.9

Well done!

Letter to Parents from LCS Governors

Posted 28th June 2019

The LCS Governing Board has sent a letter to parents of all LCS students regarding future plans for the LCS Headteacher position.

The letter can be read in full below:

Dear Parents,

Following the recent announcement from Mr Venkatesh of his intention to step down at the end of 2019, the Governing Board met this week to discuss and agree the next steps.

The Governing Board has asked Mr Jon Wilding, Deputy Headteacher, to take on the role of Acting Headteacher for a year, commencing 1st January 2020. I’m delighted to be able to tell you Mr Wilding accepted.

The transition planning will commence immediately and carry on throughout the Autumn Term 2019. It is likely that other interim roles may be required and/or responsibilities re-distributed, and Mr Wilding will advise at the appropriate time.

The Governing Board will also commence the longer term Headteacher recruitment process. In the meantime, we are confident the interim arrangements will provide continuity, stability and continue the ongoing drive for continuous improvement in student outcomes that Littleover Community School is famous for.

If you have any questions or comments, please feel free to contact me via the school.

Jamie Cameron
Chair of Governors

E-Safety Awareness Week - 24th-28th June

Posted 19th June 2019

E-Safety Awareness Week - 24th-28th June

During E-safety week, Key Stage 3 pupils will be using their Computing lessons to focus on E-Safety in the modern age. Whilst all aspects of internet use and electronic devices are covered, we feel our priority this year is the use of social media. To raise the profile of E-Safety, there are a number of competitions for students to enter and they will attend dedicated whole year group assemblies.

In order to help facilitate students’ understanding, we would encourage parents to become involved and engage in conversation with your children on this matter. It is clearly important, but we do need to emphasise the awareness of issues that could arise, both in school, at home and socially with friends.

All content and materials are in-line with current national guidance.

If you have any concerns about your child and their use of the internet or social media you can either contact CEOP directly at the following web address.

https://www.ceop.police.uk/safety-centre/

You can find out more about E-Safety on the LCS website at Parents > Safeguarding > E-safety where there is comprehensive information and links to many different organisations that provide useful help and guidance.

Year 9 Madrid Trip 2019

Posted 12th February 2019

Year 9 Madrid Trip 2019

From 6th - 8th February 2019, 39 Year 9 students and 4 members of staff spent 3 days in Madrid. We were very lucky with the weather, and we certainly made the most of our Spanish experience!

As soon as we arrived we began our Spanish adventure. Due to our early flight from Liverpool airport we were all very hungry and tired by the time we arrived at our hotel! That didn’t stop us from eating tapas and watching a real-life Flamenco show at the famous Villa Rosa. ¡Olé!

We spent the next day brushing up on our Spanish with our pen pals in our partner school in Madrid, ‘IES Santa Eugenia’. Students spent time playing bilingual games with their pen pals and attending lessons in Spanish! Afterwards we headed to Madrid Zoo and finished off the day at the home to Real Madrid, doing the Santiago Bernabéu stadium tour.

The following morning we enjoyed our typical Spanish breakfast at the hotel and headed out via Metro to Las Ventas, for our guided bullring arena tour.

After an exhausting morning we headed back to the hotel to collect our luggage and get ready for the flight home to Liverpool.

All in all, we all really enjoyed our Spanish adventure in the capital, made lots of life-long friends, tried lots of new things and practised lots of Spanish!
