Welcome from the Headteacher Mrs Jennifer Leach
Welcome to Cullompton Community College (CCC)
CCC is a 11-16 school with approximately 800 students. It has a Good OFSTED rating and I have found the school to be inviting, warm and friendly. Its ethos of ensuring that every student is included and supported to achieve their potential is evident throughout from the warm greeting at reception to the experienced and highly engaging staff in lessons.
Underpinning the Curriculum is a culture of inclusion, trust, respect and acceptance, making it a great school to study in. Safeguarding is everyone's responsibility and further details of our safeguarding policy can be found at this link:
OFSTED: September 2022 ( full report )
"Relationships between staff and pupils are warm and respectful. As a result, pupils feel safe and enjoy attending this school. Leaders want the best for pupils. They have high expectations for pupils’ learning and wider development.
Pupils make an important contribution to the life of the school. There are captains, vice-captains and prefects for different areas, such as community and sustainability.
Those with leadership roles speak with pride about their responsibilities. Pupils feel that staff listen to them and act on their ideas.
Pupils behave well. Those who need help with their behaviour receive the right support. Overall, pupils have positive attitudes towards their learning.
Pupils enjoy a wide range of clubs and societies. They feel empowered to lead their own initiatives. For example, some groups of pupils promote awareness of global issues. Others champion well-being.
Pupils say that bullying is rare. When it does occur, the school deals with it effectively and quickly most of the time. Pupils learn to respect people from other backgrounds and how to treat everyone equally."
Serving the mid and east Devon local communities the school was established in 1872 and continues to be an integral part of the local community. Student numbers are growing, in part because of local housing developments but also as the reputation as a caring and supportive school grows.
The college is passionate for helping students to succeed; a well thought out subject curriculum, underpinned by the Positive Living curriculum which focuses on personal development, excellent staff, strong support systems such as our Pastoral system and a dedicated SEND team. We have across the school leaders with a clear vision. All of these aspects contribute to making it such a great place to learn.
It is my ambition to work with staff, students, parents/carers, governors and the local community to ensure that students at the college thrive and go on to make a positive contribution to our future workforce.
