Five staff and twelve students flew by Millennium Falcon to Liverpool Comic Con on Saturday 10th March.
The Force was with us as we walked around (some of us in Cosplay) finding all sorts of activities to take part in. The Students had a really good time, Playing retro computer games looking around space ships and at comic stalls. Our chaplain Phil Johnson is a huge Dr Who fan, so meeting Paul McGann (The 8th Doctor Who) was a highlight of the day for him. Phil even got to have his picture taken with Paul and to pose with K9. Paul grew up just opposite our Academy and talked about hanging around Newsham Park as a teenager. We’re now hoping he will come to visit us in the future, although as a timelord he may well have done so already! Who knows?
