Mr Alex Lingard BSc (Hons)
Head Teacher

Huge congratulations to our U15 boys' football team who were crowned County Champions last week after beating Penryn 4-1 in the final at St Blazey. We are really proud of their achievement and the way they have conducted themselves throughout the tournament.

The future looks bright for Liskeard. The progress being made by students in school is extremely encouraging; Year 11 and Year 13 are predicted to get our best GCSE and A Level results ever this summer, whilst lower down the school students are continuing to show an impressive desire to learn and achieve.

Last night our U15 girls’ rugby team became county champions! This is wonderful news and each of the players should be extremely proud of their achievements and the way in which they conducted themselves throughout the tournament. They have been a real credit to themselves and the school. The team will now head off to the regional finals with the hope of reaching the national finals at Twickenham later in the year.

Later this month the Department for Education will publish the school performance tables. These give details of the results students achieved in their GCSEs last summer. Whilst it is important to hold schools to account it is also important to understand what the figures represent. The results this year are based on what students achieved in their first attempt in their exams not what they may have actually ended up with. The performance tables are therefore not a true representation of how well schools performed and means it is impossible to be able to compare schools. The majority of the results published also don’t give an indication of the progress the students have made from the start of secondary school to the end of their GCSEs.

As the term draws to a close it is a good time to reflect on what has been achieved and to think ahead about what still needs to be done. On a personal level it's been a wonderful first term as a new Head Teacher. There have been some challenging decisions to make, but far more importantly I have witnessed some fabulous achievements by hundreds of students, both in and out of the classroom. The New Year brings with it some challenging times, especially for our older students having to complete their mock exams.
