Liskeard School and Community College are proud and delighted with the outcomes of their recent Ofsted inspection, gaining a good judgement for all areas of its practice.

Inspectors praised the school for the quality of teaching: 'most of the teaching observed was good or outstanding' and noted that this had obviously contributed to the success of the examination results in the main school and the Sixth Form which ‘are improving each year.’ 'Teachers have high expectations and students respond well to this.'

They recognised the excellence of leadership at all levels saying, ‘All leaders clearly communicate high expectations and ambitions for the school and its students' and that there is an 'unrelenting' focus on improvement. They acknowledged the effectiveness and enthusiasm of the governors in offering support and challenge to the school.

Inspectors drew attention to the quality of relationships throughout the school: 'Positive and productive relationships are a strong feature of the school. The behaviour of students towards each other, to members of staff and to visitors is polite and positive. Relationships between students and adults are generally very good and promote a positive ethos for learning.... The vast majority of students are keen to achieve well and so respond positively to the help that is offered to them throughout the school... Students behave well and feel safe.'Liskeard-School-Ofsted

Donna Bryant, Head Teacher, said, 'This is a well-deserved report. Staff and students have worked so hard together and are really proud of their school. It is our belief that the local school should be the natural first choice for all students and parents, not simply because it is the nearest, but because it provides all that you would want for your child in terms of excellence and opportunity. That has always been our ambition. This report shows that we are achieving this for, and with, our community.'

In his letter congratulating the school, Trevor Doughty, Director of Cornwall Children, Schools and Families, said, ‘It’s great to know that the people of Liskeard and surrounding villages are assured of such a good service for their children.’

The Inspection team commented on the strengths of the community relationship: 'the school prides itself on being a community school and has worked hard to build excellent relationships with the local community and businesses.'

Liskeard School and Community College is part of the Liskeard Community Co-operative Learning Trust. The Trust has provided a range of additional opportunities to contribute to the success of the school. The Trust partners are delighted by the outcome of the Inspection. Andrew North, Director of The Co-operative retail group SW, said, “The Ofsted report acknowledges the hard work undertaken by Liskeard Community College and recognises the great progress in its first year as a Co-operative college.”
