Mr Alex Lingard BSc (Hons)
Head Teacher

With the ongoing reforms to GCSE and A Levels, I just want to advise parents about the information provided within the Progress Checks. Like all schools, we are feeling our way through the new GCSE grading system working out what each grade 'looks like' in terms of the work students produce. With limited information from the exam boards this is not easy and is something we are spending alot of time on. Given there is a degree of uncertainty, please focus your attention on the attitude scores and next step comments provided in the Progress Checks, rather than the current and forecast grades. If students are working hard (scoring 1s and 2s) and following the advice given, they will do well no matter who they are or what their target grades are.

I was immensely proud of our Young Enterprise Students for their success in the county finals last month. Not only did they perform superbly well in front of a panel of judges and at their trade stand promoting their Fantasy Trading Card Game, they were recognised for their amazing resilience and team work over the last 8 months. This won them the Young Enterprise Cornwall Board Special Recognition Award! The students represented the school exceptionally well and certainly learnt alot from the experience. Huge thanks to Mr Aird for supporting and guiding them along the way. #TeamLiskeard

Double success for Liskeard footballers as we became county champions for both our youngest and oldest students recently! The first crown was for our U12 girls' team beating Mounts Bay in the final. The second victory was for our U18 Football Academy against Truro School. Two amazing scalps as we dominated both games. Huge congratulations to all the students involved and to the PE staff (and Plymouth Argyle coaches) for their inspirational leadership. To have the best football teams in Cornwall is something to shout about! #TeamLiskeard

With the written exams in full flow I just wanted to wish all our brilliant students the very best wishes in their exams. I am really proud of the hard work and resilience they have shown throughout the year. Getting students ready for the exam season is a big operation and I'd like to thank all the teachers, support staff and parents for their amazing dedication and commitment to the students and the school. It really is a team effort. #TeamLiskeard

The Autumn term has seen the introduction of our new school badge which highlights our team approach and belief that every student matters and has a role to play. As you know, our ethos and team spirit was recognised at a national level in the Parliamentary Review in September. This term we have also been focussing on enabling all students to get on with their learning straight away with ‘Do Now’ tasks at the start of every lesson and ‘arrow’ work, designed to encourage students to stretch themselves and aspire to do even better. Our Football Academy has reached the 6th round of the national cup and our rowers have just become County champions! We’ve been awarded ‘Champion School’ status by the National Citizen Service for the second time and we have 3 candidates put themselves forward to be members of the Youth Parliament. The local community and local businesses have kindly donated funding to enable our technology department to purchase a 3D printer and the kit needed to take part in the Greenpower Go-Kart Challenge. We’ve become an Associate School for the Royal Shakespeare Company and are proud to have a World Karate Champion as a member of our staff.
