Creative and Performing Arts 1 

The Arts Faculty consists of Art, Music and Drama and there are very close links with Media and Dance. All staff working within the arts have experience of working within the creative arts industry, providing excellent background knowledge of their specialism as well as education.

As a team we believe, in an increasingly accessible global culture, our arts provision prepares young people with a rich appreciation of their world and their responsibilities through an awareness of cultural diversity and a celebration of creative work from cultural heritage through to contemporary practice. Through the development of specialist skills in Art, Music, Drama, Dance and Media we enable our students to communicate their ideas openly, creatively and intelligently.

Pupils and the wider community benefit from purpose built accommodation with facilities that enable highly specialist work to take place. Projects explore aesthetics and each department recognises and celebrates the interdependent relationship between the arts.

We are committed to encouraging leadership, team work, independence, effective participation, creative and critical thinking, reflection and self-management within the arts through facilitating partnerships and practical projects that impact directly upon the lives of others in the school community and beyond.  The over-riding aim of the creative arts is to foster a sense of curiosity, interest and enjoyment, of pride and ownership through the celebration of individual and collective creative endeavour.

We are a friendly and inclusive department who link extensively with local primary and secondary schools and are renowned within the county for our leadership and sporting excellence.

We pride ourselves in the range of sporting opportunities that we offer our students both within the curriculum and outside of it. In the past five years alone we have travelled far and wide with our students. We have been to Barcelona and the Nou Camp, the London Olympics and Paralympics, The ATP Tennis World Tour Finals, Wimbledon, The Eindhoven Cup, The Rugby World Cup Finals, Queens Park Olympic Hockey (The Champions Cup), Twickenham  (Autumn Internationals) as well seeing as the England Women’s Cricket Team in a One Day International. We have also had visits from Paralympic Athletes David Hill and David Wetherill, Golf Pro Jason Avery, Rugby Coach Mike Smith and Cricket Coach Jack Mingo.

In terms of sporting success, 2016-17 has been another excellent year for Liskeard students:

Our Rowing Team won the Cornwall School Games and were Regional Finalists, coming 2nd in the South West. With our Project Ability teams leading the medals table at both. Football has continued to flourish with our U18 Football Academy Team retaining their County Title. Not to be outdone by the boys, our U12 Girls also won their first county title and we are proud once again to strengthen our links with Plymouth Argyle as we welcome back Jason Chapman to our coaching staff. In 2016 our U15 Girls became County and Regional Rugby Champions and went on to represent the West at the National Finals in Coventry, where they eventually finished 9th in the country. In Hockey, our U13 Boys’ reached the South West Finals at Millfield School and our U16 Mixed Hockey Team reached the Cornwall School Games Finals. Our U13 Girls Cricket Team won the Chance to Shine Cricket Finals. In Netball our Year 8’s, 9’s and 10’s all reached the North Cornwall Finals after performing impressively in the East Cornwall leagues. Our KS3 and 4 Girls Badminton teams both achieved bronze medals in the School Games Finals and our U13 Handball Team won silver and represented Cornwall at the regional finals. In addition to stand-out performances in a range of sports, numerous medals, trophies and county titles, there were also many gutsy performances which saw students recording personal bests as well as being fantastic ambassadors for the school. The behaviour at all competitions has been exemplary and the support for fellow athletes and performers has been excellent. Team spirit and teamwork is alive and well at LSCC.

The Dance department is pirouetting through the curriculum running the highly popular dance week, pupils have also attended Callington Dance Festival, visited the Theatre Royal Plymouth to see Cats, Billy Elliot and Sister Act, and also linked with professional dance companies including Cscape and SpinDriftDance.

Our sixth form students following the A Level PE and OCR Sport courses have had opportunities to visit both Marjons and Plymouth Argyle and complete physiological and biomechanical testing and this year achieved a fantastic 100% pass rate with 77% achieving A-C grades.

Student leadership at Liskeard School has gone from strength to strength. Student leaders have organised primary multi-sport festivals, umpired primary sports leagues, run activities in local primary schools and care facilities. They have been Games Makers at the Cornwall School Games and as a school we stepped in at very short notice to host the Cornwall School Primary Games, where our fantastic sixth form leaders and GLAMS team made sure that all the primary students from across the county had a highly enjoyable, competitive and unforgettable day.

What is a Business Leader?

A Business Leader sets up and runs their own business for the duration of a school year by taking part in the Young Enterprise Company Programme.


What does being a Business Leader at Liskeard School involve?

Each student in the company is given a specific role, such as the Managing Director, Finance Director or Marketing Director. There are a total of eight director roles per group.

Business Leaders may also be invited to events or meetings about the business aspects of the school.


What commitment do Leaders need to make?

As a minimum, Business Leaders need to attend a one a half hour meeting one day after school each week. However, to run the business successfully, Leaders need to commit a lot of their own time to the business activities. They also need to attend trade fairs which happen throughout the year at weekends.


What qualities would I need to have to be a member?

You will need to have a drive and commitment for completing your own ideas. Business knowledge is not essential as you will learn this over the course of the year. You must also be committed to attending the meetings and completing the tasks of the role given to you.


Which year group do I need to be in to apply?

You need to be in year 10 to be a Business Leader, but you do not need to have chosen GCSE Business Studies as an option subject


How many positions are available?

Anywhere between 5-15 places.


How do I apply?

Instructions about becoming a business leader will be given Year 10 students at the beginning of each school year. If you are interested in applying please speak to Mr. Aird who will tell you more about the programme.
