Since 2006 Liskeard School and Community College has been employing apprentices, in particular employing students leaving from their sixth form. Not only does this help retain students but it also provides career opportunities within the local area. In the last couple of years alone six apprentices have been recruited in departments including Finance, Arts, IT and Science.

Recently some of our gifted and talented mathematicians took part in the Year 10 Team Mathematics Competition at Plymouth University. We took two teams under the guidance of Mr Hill, assisted by Ben Townsend in Y13. They had various challenges to complete, including learning how to work in base 6. There was some really tough competition and even though we didn’t win, a great afternoon was had by all.

UKAYRoC stands for the United Kingdom Aerospace Youth Rocketry Challenge. This is the first year that students from Liskeard School have entered this demanding national competition. The challenge is to design and build a model rocket from scratch that reaches a height of 825 feet (250 metres or a quarter of a kilometre), with a flight time of between 47 and 50 seconds, whilst carrying a delicate payload of two hens eggs. Sounds easy? Not in the slightest. The group of year 10 boys had to use all of their science, maths and technology skills to understand aerodynamics, fin design, as well as learning how to handle explosive materials, ensuring that three rocket motors fired simultaneously to send the rocket in the right direction.
