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.

The British Youth Council have acknowledged the excellent work to promote and engage students in democracy taking place at Liskeard School. Liskeard are only one of sixty schools nationally to receive the Discovering Democracy Award and the only school in Cornwall. This is in recognition of the work students have been doing in PHSCE as well as the numerous events held over the last twelve months such as a mock general election, youth parliament election and having outside speakers such as Lord Teverson, a peer in the House of Lords, come into school to speak to students. There was also an opportunity for Liskeard Sixth Form students to debate in the European Youth Parliament at Exeter County Hall.

In March, Liskeard School and Community College were delighted to host Brook Cornwall for a Health Awareness Day. The two day ‘bitesize’ event was presented to students in year 10.

Brook ran a number of different activities in the Active Learning Centre that students actively took part in. Topics were lead by the students and included information about STIs; discussions about LGBT; safe sex and not feeling pressured. The activities were interactive and engaging and students were positive and involved throughout.
