Unparalleled commitment


Staff and students at Alsop High School have acknowledged the passing of its former chair of governors, Marilyn Fielding. Marilyn was one of the longest serving governors in Liverpool. Mr Paul Masher, headteacher at Alsop said: “Marilyn was chair of governors at Alsop for over 30 years. Whilst I never had the pleasure to meet or work with Marilyn personally, the tributes made by staff, former students and members of our community demonstrate that her life was one of service to both our school and Walton. “Her legacy is interwoven into the fabric of Alsop, and we will ensure that there is a lasting memorial to her dedicated service to education and young people. “Selfless people like Marilyn are like rare diamonds and as a community we are blessed to have had her support; she will be greatly missed and we send our sincere condolences to her husband Cliff and the Fielding family.” During her time as chair of governors, the school grew in numbers and the Queens Drive site benefitted from several capital building programmes. Mrs Fielding was delighted to secure funding to build the Alsop Lifestyles Sports Centre, a purpose-built performing arts facility, and a new IT building.
