Mr Alex Lingard BSc (Hons)
Head Teacher

We were delighted to welcome the Mayoress of Liskeard, Councillor Jane Pascoe and the Rt Hon Sheryll Murray MP to school last week to celebrate with students our inclusion in the Parliamentary Review and the announcement that we have been named as Champion School by the National Citizen Service. Look out for the photos on our website, in the local press and on our social media pages. And if that wasn’t enough, our 6th formers were treated to a motivational talk this week by Olympic diver, Sarah Barrow!

So important is our belief in team work and 'achieving more together' the school has ordered Team Liskeard badges for every student. Once issued, students will wear them on the left lapel of their blazer as part of their uniform.  I'm sure they will wear them with pride when they arrive.

It is important to recognise students who go the extra mile to help their peers and their community. To this end we have also ordered additional badges for students who have won an award at one of our prestigious Awards’ Evenings and some Student Leader badges for those who hold a position of responsibility e.g. Peer Mentors, School Council Reps, Personnel Leaders, ALC Helpers, Young Enterprise Leaders, Digital Leaders.

I keep taking to the students about what I consider to be the top two attributes in people: resilience and kindness. With this in mind, we are asking all staff and students to give up something they love during the month of October to raise money for Happy Days Children’s Charity. Some suggestions include:

  • giving up unhealthy snacks for a week and donating the proceeds

  • sponsoring a friend to give up a bad habit e.g. biting their nails

  • getting sponsored to go without a mobile phone for a whole weekend!

What a great start to the year! Not only have the students come back eager to learn, but the 2016 Parliamentary Review has just been published featuring the school as an example of best practice across the country! We're the only school from Cornwall and Devon to feature and we're really proud to have been recognised for our great ethos and inclusive approach.

Last week the Local Authority paid us a visit to assess how we are doing as a school. They were really impressed with many things and made a point of saying what a lovely, friendly school we are. They were particularly impressed with the attitude of the students and their positivity about the school. I couldn't agree more!

They interviewed some Year 10 and Year 12 students who spoke highly about many things including behaviour, the support given to them by their teachers, DIT and careers advice.
