Three students from Liskeard School and Community College are off to study physics at Oxford and Durham universities after securing A*s in all their subjects.  The trio achieving 10 A*s between them have embraced the world of maths and science and are determined to use their skills and knowledge to good effect in the future.

Physics teacher, Andy Davis, said, “It has been an absolute joy to teach these incredible students. Their understanding of science and ability to apply their skills to solve complex problems has been very impressive. They have a great future ahead of them.”

Callum Bartlett and Sophie Tucker are off to Oxford, after achieving A*s in Maths, Further Maths and Physics, whilst Levi Purvis is travelling up to Durham having achieved 3 A* grades in Chemistry, Maths and Physics.

This year our A level students have achieved outstanding results with nearly 80% of the results within the A* to C grade boundaries and an overall 100% pass rate. Our vocational courses also had a 100% success rate with several candidates obtaining double starred distinctions.

Director of Sixth Form, Gill Prichard said ‘We are delighted to see our students having the success they need to proceed onto university or the world of work. The staff here have high expectations and it is their constant support and encouragement which enables our students to perform at their best. We wish them all the best for their exciting future plans.’

​The science is clear: it is understood that we are facing an unprecedented global emergency. Human activity is causing irreparable harm to the life on this planet. The task before us is daunting but big changes have happened before. We must act now to make a better world.​

​Whatever your knowledge, experience or situation, it is difficult to ignore the message that nature is telling us: that we must change the way we exist and time is running out. The solutions are out there, many people and groups in our area are already doing fantastic things, but there is so much more. If we come together and act now, we can make positive change happen. ​​

Don't Forget: 

A Level Results Day, Tomorrow (Thursday 15th August).

Doors open 9.30am

Good Luck to you all, hope you get the results that you have worked so hard for.

A group of 8 intrepid students and 2 brave teachers ventured on board The Island Trust pilot cutter Pegasus for a week's challenges.  We sailed all through the night and watched dawn rise as we approached St Mary's on The Isles of Scilly.  We jumped off the boat and swam off the coast of Cornwall and braved jellyfish on St Agnes. 

All the students honed their tea making skills as well as their navigation and knot tying.  There were lumpy night passages to brave and lots of steering.  Hoisting the sails took massive amounts of energy as this was an old-fashioned style boat with no winches to assist! 

We all had an amazing time - mostly due to the excellence, bravery, courage, resilience and, most of all, kindness of the students.  I'm sure this is a Challenge Week that will be remembered forever.
