October saw the return of Liskeard School and Community College’s annual residential experience at Porthpean Outdoor Education Centre for the new Year 7 students.

Each day started with a hearty breakfast to provide the necessary energy for the day's activities ahead which included the traditional 7 mile circular Blackhead walk. Some students attempted to set new records for the fastest time to complete the walk whereas others adopted a more leisurely pace, enjoying the phenomenal sea and coastal views.

Liskeard School GCSE Results Day 2017

Building on our outstanding A Level results, our GCSE students have done brilliantly. Over 40% of students gained a top grade of A/A* with many achieving the new top grades of 8 and 9 in the new English and maths GCSEs*. Special mention must be given to the Bartlett triplets (Callum, Abigail and Jack) who between them achieved over 30 As or A*s, each scoring a grade 9 in the new maths GCSE! Sophie Tucker secured the new top grade of 9 in all of the new GCSEs, along with another 6 A*s!

Liskeard School A-Level Results 2017

This year our A level students have achieved outstanding results with three quarters of the results within the A* to C grade boundaries and an overall 99.9% pass rate. Our vocational courses have had a 100% success rate with several candidates obtaining distinction.

Director of Sixth Form, Gill Prichard said ‘It’s been a busy year for everyone in all sorts of aspects. Our Sixth Form Football Team were County Champions this year winning all of their matches. Luke Moynan stood for the Youth Parliament and was elected. Then our debating team won the regional finals, went to Liverpool Hope University to represent the County in the national finals and two students were selected to represent the UK in the European debates. Now the team work and excellent working relationships between staff and students have culminated in a set of excellent results. It has been really rewarding to see our students do so well academically whilst also enjoying the challenges of other opportunities. I feel confident that they will be a great success with their individual plans for the future.’

Liskeard School Eren Work Experience

During Work Experience Week, I worked with Mr Luscombe and Miss Yeoman at the Publicity, Web and Marketing Department.  On Monday, I got my official staff badge printed (occupation: Junior Media Monkey). I also got a health and safety briefing, before taking photos of Challenge Week activities and posting on social media, which I did throughout the week.  I later visited Ms Nelson-Tyrrell in reprographics, where I made some booklets and learned how to use the printers in her office.

Liskeard School Sally Davis

Liskeard School and Community College had an emotional end to the term this year as long serving and hugely respected staff member Sally Davis retired after 34 year’s service.

Sally started working at Liskeard School back in 1982, working in the Technology Department as a Home Economics Teacher. Sally then diversified her role to focus on childcare, an area of work that to this day remained close to her heart.
