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.
Alex Lingard, Headteacher, said, “I would like to take this opportunity to congratulate the students for their resilience during what has been a very difficult time for them over the last four months. Not being able to sit the exams they worked so hard for was hugely disappointing, but we mustn’t let this distract from the recognition they deserve for their well-earned grades. I wish them the best for their next stage in life, whether it be at university, starting an apprenticeship or in employment. I would like to thank our fabulous staff for all their detailed and dedicated work that went into teaching the students and providing the exam boards with our Centre Assessed Grades. This wasn’t an easy process and we will do everything we can to ensure the students who have had these grades marked down by the exam boards are supported accordingly.”
Nicky Hubartt, Head of Liskeard’s Sixth Form College, added, “It has been a tough year, but the resolve and character shown by the students and staff have been so impressive. Every student should be proud of what they have achieved.”
The majority of our sixth form students are moving on the higher education with over 90% gaining a place at their first choice. Others are starting apprenticeships or having a gap year. We wish them well on their chosen paths and hope they all keep in touch to let us know how they are getting on.
