On Saturday 7th May 2016 11 girls from Liskeard School and 3 students from Looe, Richard Lander and Newquay Tretharras attended the Under 15 National Girls Rugby Finals held at Lichfield RFC, Birmingham. The tournament started with a match against St Pauls School from Norfolk. An evenly contested game saw the Liskeard girls have a try disallowed for being held up before Merryn Doidge ended a flowing move involving the majority of the backs by scoring in the corner. Unfortunately concentration and focus was lost for a split second as St Pauls broke through a resolute and organised defence to equalise, as the referee concluded the match.

The Liskeard Sixth Form Debate Team, consisting of Abi Sharma-Burford, Teighan Borlase, Jordan Hembrow, Rose Mackonockie, Flo Gregory and Josh Cliffe, recently attended Exeter County Hall for a debate competition. The Team had been entered into The European Youth Parliament Debate, for the South West Region.

All students volunteered to take part, giving up several lunch times and meeting after school to plan, discuss and carry out research in preparation for the big day.

A small group of students from Liskeard Sixth Form recently attended an Oxford and Cambridge Information Day, which took place at the Eden Project.

Two Admission Officers representing each university gave a very clear and precise presentation. This focused on the admissions process and what qualities Oxford and Cambridge are looking for.

Twelve further mathematics students from Liskeard School and Community College recently visited the University of Warwick, where they had their first real taste of university life.

We arrived and checked into our accommodation as we were staying in Halls on campus.

The group met at the Zeeman building, where they were met by Professor Jane Hutton and had welcome talks from Dr Ewart Shaw, from the statistics department and from Professor David Mond from mathematics. Students learned about courses that are available, as well as opportunities and careers after graduation. They were also informed about studying away from home and living independently.
