School and community came together when a group of Sixth Form students in Liskeard School’s Bridge Academy helped put on the first ‘Make Things Happen’ event.  The school and students worked with the Real Ideas Organisation (RIO) which brought together a variety of groups, individuals and Community businesses to talk about what’s already going on in our town and what can be developed.

Year 12 Business students from Liskeard Sixth Form travelled to Plymouth University recently to experience what life might be like for them in the future.

The team of students – Giles Blackwell, Tom Pugh, Josh Randall and Jordan West - took part in a competition hosted by Plymouth University’s Business School.  Their task was to research and create a presentation on any topic of their choosing based around the theme of either technology, environment and sustainability, logistics or entrepreneurship and enterprise.

Liskeard Sixth Form were delighted to welcome local Olympic diver Sarah Barrow to deliver a motivational talk to students in Year 12.

Sarah, born in Plymouth, shared her story of how she achieved her goals to become an Olympic athlete. Sarah was able to set herself individual goals which led her to compete in the London Olympics, coming fifth in the 10m Synchronised Diving and showing resilience in her battle against injury to compete in the 2016 Rio Olympics. The diver also won gold in the 2012 European Championships in the same event and in the 2014 Championships in the 10m Platform.

The National Citizen Service, the UK’s flagship youth programme for 16 and 17 year olds, has again named Liskeard School and Community College a ‘Champion School’ after being selected from thousands of schools participating across the country. The school has excelled at motivating students to take up extracurricular activities, specifically encouraging young people to attend the four week programme during their holidays, leading to an increased interest in volunteering.

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.’
