So many of students have worked incredibly hard throughout their time at college and fully deserve to be proud of their achievements. Students have shown how well they have coped with the demands of their courses during lessons and through two lockdowns as well as having to sit a series of internal exams in May and June.
Alex Lingard, Headteacher, said, “I would like to take this opportunity to congratulate the students for their resilience and hard work during what has been an exceedingly challenging time for them over the last year. The grades they have achieved are well-deserved and are based on evidence from our internal exams, assessments, and coursework.
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 the work that went into teaching the students and providing the exam boards with our Centre Assessed Grades. This was a long, detailed and thorough process, and I am proud of the professionalism and integrity shown by every one of them.”
Nicky Hubartt, Head of Liskeard’s Sixth Form College, added, “It has been another tough year for our Y13s. Yet again they have really impressed me with their courage and resilience. They have pushed themselves and worked extremely hard to achieve their results. I am delighted with how well they have done, and I wish them every success for the future. A huge thank you goes to the sixth form team and all the teachers who have supported and encouraged the students throughout these last two years. It has been a fantastic team effort from everyone.”
The majority of our sixth form students are moving on the higher education with well over 90% gaining a place at their first-choice university. Others are starting apprenticeships, having a gap year, or have secured employment. We wish them well on their chosen paths and hope they all keep in touch to let us know how they are getting on.
