Merchant Taylors' Girls' School Merseyside

We are incredibly proud of all our students and the fantastic things they do both inside and outside the class room. This week we caught

up with Emily Chan, who is a Year 3 pupil at Merchant Taylors’ Primary School. Emily recently took part in the national BMC Youth Climbing competition and came 10th in the country!

Here she talks to us about what inspired her to start climbing and how she feels about placing so high in this prestigious event.

What inspired you to start climbing?

My Mum used to climb which is why I wanted to try it.

How long have you been climbing for?

Four years.

Where is the best place you’ve been climbing?

Probably the Climbing Hanger because even though it is small, it has lots of brilliant coaches and great climbs.

What does it mean to you coming 10th in the country?

It means a lot because I thought I might come in the top twenty but not the top ten. There are lots of other girls who are great climbers – like my friend, Corinne, who came ninth and my friend Rose who came first.

Can you tell us a bit more about the competition?

It was at Edinburgh International Climbing Arena which is the biggest climbing arena in the world. They even have their own ‘Go Ape’ at the top of the very high walls!

I was in category E, so I thought there would be less people but there was actually 26. This made me a bit scared as I thought I wouldn’t do very well.

How was the competition organised?

You had to be in the top three in your region to qualify (there are ten regions). You do three boulders and three routes. You only have six minutes on each route and you get 62 points if you climb without falling on your first go, 61 if you do it on your second go and 60 if you do it on your third go.

Nobody completed all of the climbs because they were so big and difficult. I’m not sure what the actual grades were. I wasn’t warmed up enough for the first climb – so I know to do that better in future.

What would you like to be able to achieve in the future?

I would like to be in the top three in the world, like Shauna Coxsey. I did a project on her when I was in Year 2.

She overcame

hundreds of contestants, through months of auditions, to win a place in the TV heats where one of the judges is the 2015 Bake Off winner Nadiya Hussain.  Sophie’s specialty is carrot cake.  Her proud mum Gail said, “my husband quite likes cooking so from a very early age he’s always been in the kitchen with Sophie.  We started making crispy cakes when she was a toddler and it’s just gone on from there.”

Sophie wasn’t at all phased by the prospect of appearing on national TV, Gail said “Going through the process was not an issue for Sophie.  It was something she really wanted to do, she was never nervous and always excited. I was the nervous one and I didn’t have to do anything other than chaperone her. I am so proud.”

Last week we competed in the annual AJIS (Association of Independent Junior Schools) Indoor Athletics competition at Robin Park in Wigan for Year 5 and

Congratulations to all the girls on their achievements, it is fantastic to get so many medals in such a prestiguous competition!

raise the £7000 needed to help our link school Hope Preparatory, in Sierra Leone, build a new 4 classroom build. The land had been bought by the former Headteacher, Mrs Doherty, who visited Stanfield in 2011, but who sadly passed away before her proposed idea could begin.

Building work started in November 2016, with the help of Mrs Doherty’s brother, who has taken over as the new Headteacher and Mr Power from MTGS, who has been an important link between Stanfield and Hope Preparatory School in Sierra Leone. He will fly over to officially open the school in May this year on our behalf.
