Although this year has witnessed many changes in the educational world our students and teachers have faced the challenges with their usual enthusiasm.

Gill Prichard, Director of Sixth Form said ‘What an exceptional year. Our students have excelled themselves. Amid all the constant alterations in the exam process they have risen to the ever increasing demands and exceeded our expectations. I am so proud of them and wish them all the best in their future plans.’

Liskeard School and Community College has had a facelift - a partial facelift, that is! Its Sixth Form has been rebranded to emphasize its status as a community college and to make it distinguishable from the rest of the school. Head Teacher, Alex Lingard, said "Although the name Liskeard School and Community College says we are both a School and a College we wanted to create something more visual to show that they are different. I'm absolutely delighted with the outcome."

Liskeard School and Community College recently held its annual sports day with events taking place across the school site. The sun was shining and spirits were high as students took to the school fields and Astro pitches to participate in the morning events including rounders, cricket, football, netball and volleyball. The afternoon session saw the students take to the running track for the relays which culminated in the much anticipated staff v sixth form relay won comfortably by the Sixth Form students with the PE Department struggling over the line in third place.

Liskeard School and Community College student Victoria Sichel has a new family!  In early July, during Liskeard School’s annual Challenge Week, the Year 9 student met nearly 600 new relatives for the first time. 

Victoria, who has lived in Liskeard all her life, never knew how big her family was until she discovered them through four days of intensive research into her family tree with Karen O’Livey, the English Faculty Teaching Assistant at Liskeard.  With access to billions of records on Ancestry and FindMyPast, Victoria travelled back through over five centuries, and across three continents to track the movements of her ancestors by comparing passenger lists with birth and marriage records.

Aden Pike, a Teaching Assistant at Liskeard School recently gained a place on the WKU England Karate Team to compete in Orlando, Florida for the WKU World Karate Championships which takes place in September. Liskeard School held a dress down day to raise money for Aden. The money raised will go towards the training and entry fees as well as helping Aden get to America to compete.
