High Sheriff Visits

Alsop for Breakfast

Alsop welcomes the High Sheriff of Merseyside, Mr Stephen Burrows DL for breakfast with students.

It is not everyday that the High Sheriff pops into school for breakfast. Students at Alsop High School, were delighted when Mr Stephen Burrows, DL, took time to visit and present “Golden Tickets” to a talented group of Year 8 students, who have made outstanding progress in all areas of the curriculum.


Ms Philips Head of Year 8 comments:

“We would like to thank Mr Burrows for his visit. Year 8 students were inspired by his words of encouragement. The High Sheriff was fabulous the way he interacted with them. Some of the 6th form students got really involved too and ended up wearing his hat and sword!!!!”

After breakfast Mr Burrows met a large group of students in the library. He watched the premiere of a special film commissioned by Alsop to highlight the work undertaken as part of the FAITH 2017 initiative, shortlisted for the National Crimebeat Award. Mr Burrows spoke about his role and gave students an amusing insight into the work of the High Sheriff. He congratulated Alsop on being shortlisted for the prestigious national Crimebeat award. Mr Burrows told Alsop students that the school was receiving the Award in recognition of “great and valuable services to the community. The award also recognises the appreciation of the residents and people for Alsop’s contribution for enhancing the life of the community.”


Mr Burrows shows students his sword.

You should have asked for a knife to butter your toast.


An Alsop student who may be a future High Sheriff.
