U11 Boys Football – South League Match

13th April 2018

It was the final match of the Under 11 Boys South League against St Paschal Baylon at home this week. The boys were determined to keep up their unbeaten run following 4 wins and a draw. Although we took a 2-0 lead early in the first half, a good performance from St Paschal Baylon brought it to 2-2. A disallowed goal, a goal line clearance and the ball hitting the bar made it clear it wasn't to be Childwall's day. The score finished 2-2 and, although the boys were disappointed with the result, they can certainly be proud of keeping their unbeaten record. We now await the league results to see our finishing position. Well done boys!

LFC Flag Bearers

The girls’ football team had a fantastic day at the LFC Legends v Bayer Munich Legends football match at Anfield. As the winners of the LFC Premier League Premier Stars Tournament we will be representing LFC at the national finals in May at The King Power Stadium, home of Leicester City. As a result, the LFC Foundation invited the team to wave the Foundation flags before kick-off at the Legends match and have pitch side seats to watch the game.


Before the match we visited the kid zone and had a few rounds of beat the keeper with LFC Foundation staff, saw some samba dancing and saw the stilted mascots. We then went for lunch in the Kenny Dalglish Stand before donning our LFC Foundation t-shirts and raising the flags proud. We were then treated to the match filled with lots of legends and goals! A great day out.

Y5&6 Basketball – City Finals
Following an exciting qualifying round at the beginning of January, the children were eager to take part in the City Finals at Archbishop Beck Catholic High School.

The team were unbeaten throughout the group stages without conceding a single goal, playing fantastic football which caught the eye of the opposing teams. We were the team to beat. The close score line in the semi-final didn’t do our performance justice as the boys convincingly cruised through to the final. It was heart breaking when the other team scored a last minute goal to take the final to penalties. A great team spirit and effort from our team, but luck was not with us as we got beaten on sudden death penalties. Mr Hawthorne and the school are so proud of all of the boys, well done to you all.

Very courageous and dedicated Phoebe.

Y5&6 Basketball Competition

10th January 2018

We took two teams (Team A & Team B) to represent our school in the Y5&6 Basketball Competition this week, which took place at St Margaret's Academy. It was the children's first ever competitive game, following weeks of hard work and practice in P.E lessons. The teams were split into two separate groups, with the top two teams moving forward into the semi-finals. Whilst both of our teams did not lose a group game, it was Team B that progressed through to the semi-finals as Team A drew all of their games, closely missing out on 3rd place in the group. Team B, however, played a tough semi-final game which ended in a draw which saw the game be determined by a shootout. Each team had 5 free throws, with Noah scoring the decisive basket to win the game. Team B have now qualified for the City Finals in February! Well done to all of the children involved.

She also told us how very lucky we are to have the support from Mrs Mason to allow us to go out and about competing against other schools, to have our teachers who plan their lessons around our competitions, our children who love to play and compete in sports, our parents who travel around Liverpool dropping off and collecting from events and for having Mr Hawthorne who plans all of our sport and PE in school. She told us that not many schools have a Mr Hawthorne, someone who is so dedicated to the school, the children and sports, often giving up his own time to ensure that the children have the opportunity to compete and to be the best in their chosen sports. Mr Hawthorne, you really are the best!

6th November 2017

Two of our Quicksticks teams took part in the City Finals after qualifying in the South Heat last week. Childwall A and Childwall B played in two separate groups, playing 5 group games each. Childwall B won 1, drew 3 and lost 1, closely missing out on the semi finals by 2 points. Childwall A won all of their group games and were considered the favourite moving into the semi final. A close game against Booker however, saw Childwall A lose the game 1-0. Childwall A then battled it out for a third place play off against Bishop Eton, winning the game 5-0 and finishing in 3rd place in the city overall! A great effort from both teams, well done!

Under 11 Boys’ Football Match - Broadgreen 7-a-side League

1st November 2017

Another boys’ match took place again this week, this time in the Broadgreen 7-a-side League against Monksdown Primary School. Once again, it was a close and difficult game for the boys who stuck to their task well, remaining patient and disciplined. It took until the second half for the opening goal and it was Childwall that took the lead. Another goal shortly after made it 2-0 and sent the boys to yet another win in the Broadgreen League who are currently unbeaten in all competitions.

Under 11 Boys’ Football Match – South League

31st October 2017

It was the second South League match of the season for the boys, playing away at Booker Avenue. It was a fast and competitive match with both teams displaying some fantastic football. Childwall opened up the scoring early on in the game before finding themselves 2-1 down shortly after the break. Two goals in quick succession gave Childwall the lead once again, before a late equaliser from Booker to see the game finish 3-3. Great game to watch and a fair result in the end. Well done boys.

Y3&4 Quicksticks

30th October 2017

We took three teams to represent our school in the LSSP Quicksticks Competition this week at The Academy of St. Nicholas. Quicksticks is a primary version of hockey which enables the children to gain and develop the fundamental skills of the game in a 4v4 match without goalkeepers. All three teams played 5 group matches in the hope to progress through to the semi-finals. Two of our Childwall teams won all of their group matches followed by a winning performance in separate semi-final games.This meant that it was an all Childwall final, with both teams already qualifying for the City Finals next week. After a close game between Childwall A and Childwall B, the score finished 1-0 with Childwall A taking home gold medals. Well done to all of the children involved and good luck for the City Finals next week!

Final score Childwall 2 - 1 Lister. Well done girls!!

Y3 LSSP Football

4th October 2017

It was a fantastic opportunity for a group of Y3 boys to take part in the LSSP Football Competition at Liverpool Academy this week. The children were split into two teams 'Childwall Blue' and 'Childwall Yellow' and played in separate groups. It was a great experience for the children who displayed fantastic attitude and behaviour throughout the games. 'Childwall Blue' played in high spirits, working really hard together as a team, but didn't quite make it through to the finals. 'Childwall Yellow' managed to progress through the group stages and into the final. There was some great football on show and 'Childwall Yellow' won the game 3-1! They will now progress to the City Finals in November, congratulations. Well done to all of the boys involved!

Gold for Childwall CE
We are delighted to be celebrating the Sainsbury’s School Games Mark Gold Award for the second year running! This shows the involvement and commitment of our children engaging in PE and sports in school and competing in a huge variety of events across the City. Our ethos of competition is about more than just winning, but about children getting involved in physical activity and challenging themselves to achieve their personal best, supporting team mates and building the resilience to get back up after a defeat. As a school we believe that sports plays a crucial role in the contribution to the health and well-being of our children and that the lessons learnt ‘on the field’ translate to wider life, providing extensive skills and strengths.


A huge thanks to Mr Hawthorne and the staff for their hard work delivering PE lessons and the numerous after school sporting clubs that are delivered. The Gold Award puts us amongst the top schools in the country for the sporting opportunities we provide children. What a great start to what will hopefully be a successful sporting year for Childwall.
