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: March 2017
“The leadership team has maintained the good quality of education in the school since the last inspection. Standards have continued to improve and, in 2016, Year 11 pupils made strong progress placing the school in the top 10% of schools in the country for key stage 4 results. This is a result of your concerted efforts to improve the life chances for your pupils. Cullompton Community College is a caring school where pupils thrive. As a result, pupil numbers continue to rise.”
“In lessons and in pupils’ work, there is a good challenge for the most able pupils. Their work is of a high standard and is well presented. In many subjects, pupils engage in high quality conversation and debates.”
“Pupils who spoke to inspectors were animated about the support the school provides to help them understand opportunities, the skills needed and how to achieve their career ambitions.”
“Pupils and their parents report the school to be a safe place. Pupils who spoke to inspectors talked of a culture of tolerance and acceptance. They enjoy opportunities when other pupils share their experiences, including those who have different cultures and faiths.”
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.
