More in Common at Alsop

Students at Alsop High School respond positively to the recent terrorist attacks in Manchester and London.

Students at Alsop have decided stand together and launch a poster campaign within school and with partner primary schools to demonstrate that we do have “more in common.” The school has produced a series of posters to be distributed locally to celebrate diversity and community cohesion. There are ten posters in the series which promotes contemporary people and inspirational quotes.

The initiative, launched on Election Day 2017, promoted the first poster with a quote from the late Jo Cox MP.

“We are far more united and have far more in common with each other than things that divide us.”


Mr Mangan, Headteacher comments:

“After recent events Alsop was keen to relay a positive message of hope to both students and the wider community. We hope that this small gesture will encourage young people to reflect and celebrate the things that unite us as a community.

Pupils’ spiritual, moral, social and cultural development and the teaching of fundamental British values are strengths of the Alsop High School. The school is very keen to provide students with opportunities to develop their beliefs and attitudes through lessons, assemblies, guest speakers and other events. At Alsop diversity is recognised and celebrated within the school community.”


The school has also organised “The Great Get Together” to take place at Alsop on Saturday 17th June 2017 between noon and 4pm. They are inviting local people, parents and children from partner primary schools to come into school for a big picnic and “Faith Lunch”. There will be free food with music and entertainment. Liverpool Harmonic Choir and a cabaret artist will be performing on the outdoor stage. Market stalls will sell food, drink, ice-creams and gifts. There will also be traditional stalls like tombola and guess the weight of the cake. There will also be the opportunity and see the state-of-the-art facilities offered by the school.

Mr Peter Bull, Co-ordinator of FAITH 2017 writes:

“At a time when many issues that appear to be pulling communities apart the school seeks to strengthen the ties that bind us together as a community.”
