"The Experience of a Lifetime"

Morocco 2021 - Information Evening

Liskeard School and Community College are holding an Information Evening

Tuesday 25th June 2019 at 6.30pm.

We are delighted to once again be offering students in year 8 the opportunity to attend a residential trip to London to investigate democracy and British values. This trip has ran successfully for the past three years promoting the British values of democracy, tolerance, rule of law and respect.

One of the main events of the trip is a visit to the Houses of Parliament where students will undertake a debating workshop and have a tour before meeting our local MP. This, and the rest of the trip will provide students with the opportunity to develop their understanding of life in Modern Britain. Other exciting experiences include a visit and tour of a Mosque, a London West End show – this year Mamma Mia, exploring the world of work at Kidzania and finally the opportunity to experience a 360° view of London with a trip to the 72nd floor of Europe’s tallest building – the Shard!

Design the Student Planner 2019 - 2020 Front Cover!

The winning design will go to print and be the front cover of our school planner in September!

The design must be 125mm x 201mm and submitted in pdf format to Mr Acher, Mr Lingard and Mrs Penberthy by e-mail.

Think about:

The style of text (font) you use

The image/s you use (these need to be your own design, picture or photo)

 Why have you chosen to use them?

The deisgn must reflect the ethos and values of Liskeard School.

Liskeard School Sixth Form have been working closely with Exeter University to increase the political interest of young people and to improve their understanding of our political system. We have delivered a series of activities which has also involved Skyping the House of Lords and inviting local councillors and members of parliament in for a Q&A session.

Gill Prichard, Director of Sixth Form, said, “This has been a really interesting project. Both staff and students have really enjoyed looking at various aspects of politics.”

Students posed a series of questions to the Deputy Speaker Lord McFall when he spoke to us via the internet from his chambers. We also hosted a lively debate with local councillors and our MP Sheryll Murray.

Jessica Hynes, star of W1A, Spaced, Years & Years and recent BAFTA winner, spent the day at Liskeard School and Community College working with students and discussing the benefits of studying drama at school. Jessica is the patron of National Drama and is heading up a campaign to ensure schools keep drama as a valued part of their curriculum. Jessica had heard of the great work at Liskeard School so spent the day working with GCSE and A Level drama students as well as talking to students about how drama has helped them and why it is an important subject to do.
