Awards Evening

Liskeard School and Community College and Liskeard Sixth Form celebrated its third annual Awards Evening, a prestigious evening to celebrate the successes and achievement of students across a range of categories.

The invitation only event, held in the New Hall, was attended by students from all year groups, proud parents, staff and members of the community to recognise the wonderful efforts of students across the academic year.

Liskeard School Hannah Pollard DOE

Hannah Pollard, a student at Liskeard Sixth Form, was awarded her Gold Duke of Edinburgh Award at Buckingham Palace recently. The Olympic champion Greg Rutherford was an inspirational speaker at this event and he explained how sport had changed his outlook on life and linked it to the influence of scouting and how this association is so worthwhile for youngsters.

Liskeard School Football Academy

Liskeard School Football Academy was founded 2013 after a successful Sixth Form Football team and has gone from strength to strength. The past season was the first full season working in conjunction with the Plymouth Argyle Community Trust and more specifically coach Jason Chapman, who has fulfilled his promises to improve the professionalism, and in turn the results and success on the pitch.

Brendon Teague, a Condition Based Maintenance engineering Manager from South West Water, delivered a presentation and demonstrated numerous pieces of equipment including thermal imaging cameras, laser aligning equipment, Oil Analysis equipment and Vibration Monitoring and Analysis software to support Liskeard Sixth Form A-level students with their coursework on ‘The Engineering Environment.’

A-level Engineering students from Liskeard Sixth Form recently visited the materials laboratory at Plymouth University to use their tensile testing machine and furnace to complete some destructive tensile tests on three samples of EN3B Bright Drawn Mild Steel. This was carried out to measure the behaviour of steel when it’s subjected to a tensile (pulling) force.

Liskeard School and Community College continued their drive to promote the importance of democracy and to engage young people with politics as they welcomed Liberal Democrat Leader Tim Farron and Liberal Democrat Parliamentary Spokesman for South East Cornwall, Phil Hutty, as part of Mr Farron’s three day visit to Cornwall.

Engineering students from Liskeard School and community College were delighted to be given the opportunity to visit Kawasaki Precision Machinery UK Limited to gain a better understanding of how local engineering manufacturing companies mass produce products to an extremely high quality using ‘state of the art’ CNC machines.
