We are thrilled that our students have been awarded the grades that they have worked so hard for and thoroughly deserve. What has been a tremendously hard and anxious time for them has finally ended with just reward. We'd like to congratulate all our students for showing great resilience and character during their school years, especially over the last six months. 

 Headteacher, Alex Lingard, said, "After lots of controversy and confusion over the last couple of weeks, it is wonderful that students are being recognised for their hard work and achievements. Not being able to prove themselves in an exam was a huge disappointment for many students, but receiving the grades the school believes they would have achieved has to be the next best thing. I'd like to thank all our teachers for the detailed work that went into generating the Centre Assessed Grades. It was a long and thorough process, but it was what was required to ensure the students got what they deserved."

We would like to congratulate all our students on their successes this year. So many of them have worked incredibly hard throughout their time at college and fully deserve to be proud of their achievements. Despite not being able to sit their exams, students have shown how well they have coped with the demands of their courses during lessons, through homework and any internal assessments. 

On Friday 17th July, the efforts of a year 9 Liskeard student all came together to create a leaving event for the 'In School Provision' staff and students. What started out as a small ceremony to award five students their Bronze Arts Award certificates then grew into a much more daunting challenge for Ellen Smith.

Along with 4 other students, who volunteered their help and support, Ellen co-ordinated the whole event as part of her Silver Arts Award work. But before she started she had to have meetings with Assistant heads Mrs Penberthy and Ms Birkbeck in order to clarify the necessary steps with applying government guidelines to an event.

Ellen worked hard to apply as much of these guidelines as were required.
