Liskeard School Connor Davey Poem

Connor Davey wrote the poem below in Mrs Leon's 9x3 English class when studying extended metaphor as part of the creative writing and poetry topic. Well done on a great piece of work Connor!

Life is a current

a current that flows

life is a current

from young to old.

At the end of term, Liskeard School & Community College students Josh Conway, Lissie Boney and Toby Cogan raised money for their ‘Camps International Trip’ to Ecuador by running a Halloween disco for students in year 7 and 8.

The New Hall was filled with music and lights as students danced the night away in a terrifying selection of amazing Halloween costumes. Teachers Mrs Kelly and Mrs Dove even joined in with costumes of their own.  In addition to the music there were activities for the students to try including pinning the nose on the witch, the slime experience and apple bobbing.

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.’
