School Description

Liskeard School and Community College is an average-sized secondary school with a sixth form serving the town of Liskeard in South East Cornwall and the surrounding area. The school roll has fallen significantly in recent years because there are fewer students in the secondary age range living in the area. The school is part of the Liskeard Community Cooperative Learning Trust, working in partnership with its primary schools, the local authority, The University College of St Mark and St John, Plymouth and the business sector. The school works collaboratively with nearby schools and colleges as a part of the South East Cornwall Partnership, and so gives students access to a wide range of courses. A small number of students in Key Stage 4 attend vocational (work-related) courses at local schools and colleges, including Duchy College, Cornwall College, Caradon Short Stay School and Restormel Short Stay School. There is also provision for some students with Riding for the Disabled. The school specialises in engineering; it has bespoke facilities on the main site and an off-site unit for teaching the specialism. Almost all students are White British and very few have English as an additional language. The proportion of students known to be eligible for support through the pupil premium, which provides additional funding, is equal to the national average. The proportion of students with special educational needs who are supported at school action is slightly above the national average. The proportion supported at school action plus or with a statement of special educational needs is close to the national average. The school has an on-site specially resourced provision for students with autism, known as ‘The ARC’. The school meets the government’s current floor standard, which sets the minimum expectations for pupils’ attainment and progress. There is a nursery unit on the school site; it is run as a commercial enterprise and is inspected separately.

This School Guide heat map has been plotted using official pupil data taken from the last School Census collected by the Department for Education. It is a visualisation of where pupils lived at the time of the last School Census (released annually in July).

Our heat maps use groups of postcodes, not individual postcodes, and have naturally soft edges. All pupils are included in the mapping (i.e. children with siblings already at the school, high priority pupils and selective and/or religious admissions) but we may have removed statistical ‘outliers’ with more remote postcodes that do not reflect majority admissions.

For some schools, the heat map may be a useful indicator of the catchment area but our heat maps are not the same as catchment area maps. Catchment area maps, published by the school or local authority, are based on geographical admissions criteria and show actual cut-off distances and pre-defined catchment areas for a single admission year.

This information is provided as a guide only. The areas from which pupils are admitted to a school can change from year to year to reflect the number of siblings and pupils admitted under high priority admissions criteria.

3 steps to help parents gather catchment information for a school:

  1. Look at our heat maps. They give a useful indicator of the general areas that admit pupils to the school. This visualisation is based on all attending pupils present at the time of the last School Census.
  2. Use the link to the Local Authority Contact (above) to find catchment area information based on a single admission year. This is very important if you are considering applying to a school.
  3. On each school page, use the link to visit the school website and find information on individual school admissions criteria. Geographical criteria are only applied after pupils have been admitted on higher priority criteria such as Looked After Children, SEN, siblings, etc.

See Pupil heat maps FAQs for more information about the source of pupil heat map data.
