Values and ethos
Our aim is for Callington Community College to be the most exciting and dynamic school in Cornwall, where both students and staff thrive.
Callington Community College is a school preparing young people for the future – academically, in lifelong skills and in their personal and social development. We believe in engaging personalised learning in which every child is supported according to individual need and set challenging aspirational targets and goals. We provide a broad and balanced curriculum which allows students to discover their hidden talents.
We are committed to improving continuously in every aspect of what we do. We believe in lifelong learning and developing leadership. We invest effectively in continuous professional development with impact on learning, development and learning environment.
We believe in looking outside our environment for new and better methods of supporting students to make progress, to other schools, universities, to academic research and to the commercial environment for new ideas and inspiration.
Importantly we provide a safe and happy learning environment, right at the heart of the community, where our students, staff and parents are valued equally.
