Year 8 students from Liskeard School and Community College submitted designs last month for a competition to design a ‘sharing pot’ organised by The Leach Pottery in St Ives.

University of Plymouth will be running a number of subject-specific Taster Days throughout November!

These will be hosted by leading academics, university students, as well as helpful support staff, and will be designed to give students/parents/carers an insight into their area of interests. They will also have the opportunity to gather further information relating to career choices, graduate opportunities, course availability and entry requirements.

If students are interested in any of the below courses, they are welcome to attend the free online/physical Taster Day sessions this November.

Law - History - Midwifery - Occupational Therapy - 3D Design - Education - International Relations - Photography - Creative Media - Illustration - Criminology - Fine Art & Art History - Built Environment - Graphic Design - Architecture - Music – Dietetics – Nursing – Optometry – Paramedic Science – Physiotherapy – Podiatry – Psychology – Social Work – English - Computing

Ten students from year 8 have had their work selected to be submitted for a competition run by The Leach Pottery in St Ives.

The criteria was to design a sharing pot for a celebrity, somebody from history or the imagination and to explain why the choice had been made.

The submissions from all the year 8 students were of a very high standard overall but the chosen pieces were selected on the basis that the students had followed the criteria. If you have watched any of the Great Pottery Throw Down programmes you will have seen that some of the most talented potters didn't make it, simply because they had not followed the brief.

We wish all 10 students the best of luck in the competition.


On Thursday 4th March, Liskeard School joined communities all around the country in celebrating reading and books. 

Students were invited to dress up potatoes as characters, decorate their windows or doors and be creative with the books they had around them.  They were also encouraged to share their love of reading with younger children to be amazing examples of reading role models to them.

Here are the winning entries!  Congratulations to all who entered and in particular to Maddy Kolberg (overall winner) and Grace Dunn and Ella Doyle (highly commended).


Amnesty International is a world-wide organisation that advocates for human rights and defends against oppression. They have a head office in the UK and was founded by Peter Benenson a British lawyer who wrote an article for the observer called “the forgotten prisoners” about two Portuguese students who gave a toast to freedom and so Amnesty International was born.
