Head Boy & Girl
Firstly, as Head Boy and Head Girl, we would like to offer you a warm welcome to Cullompton Community College. We are Alex Powell and Libby Smith. With the support of our Deputies Max Foster and Rebecca Matthews and our student leadership team we work together to create a friendly, safe environment for all of our students. We believe that each student has the potential to reach their goals and they are encouraged to do so through the very high standard of teaching and education provided.Read more
As Deputy Head Boy and Girl we are part of an extended student leadership team working with students and staff to make good things happen. Student leaders apply for posts of responsibility such as prefects, sports leaders, house captains, school council, eco-group representatives and assistant librarians as well as Head Boy, Head Girl and Deputy roles. Students in all year groups are encouraged to develop their leadership by working cooperatively in teams, supporting others and supporting the community.
The school council represent the student voice. Views are sought from every year group and discussed in regular meetings. We link with the Headteacher and Governors to make things better for the school and for students. We believe that students have an important part to play in making the school the best it can be and in contributing to the local and wider community.
Quality First Learning
At CCC we learn in varied and interesting ways. Experiments, practical activities and using new technologies are as much a part of daily life as the essentials of reading, writing, communication and mathematics. Individual thought as well as group work, discussion and learning how to act as a team are at the heart of all we do.
Students and staff at Cullompton Community College are absolutely delighted with this year’s impressive GCSE results, the first under the new examination system which is deliberately designed to be tougher. CCC students have the highest ever level of A*/A grades with over a third of students gaining A*/A in English and above a quarter of students doing so in maths. In the new 9-1 grade results English scored 79% and maths 68%.Read more

Welcome to Cullompton Community College, a caring, friendly and high achieving community of learners of approximately 700 students aged 11-16.

Cullompton Community College celebrates excellent GCSE results under the new, tougher examination system August 2017.
Students and staff at Cullompton Community College are absolutely delighted with this year’s impressive GCSE results, the first under the new examination system which is deliberately designed to be tougher.
In what is described as a ‘year of volatility’ CCC students have the highest ever level of A*/A grades with over a third of students gaining A*/A in English and above a quarter of students doing so in maths. The new 9-1 grade results in English and maths combined are high with 68% achieving 4+ and 45% achieving above the new standard of 5+. English scored 79% and maths 68% whilst success in the Ebacc subjects of English, Mathematics, Humanities and Languages exceeded expectations at 43% and 68% of students (a very similar number to previous years) have attained at least 5 passes at the equivalent of C and above including English and Maths. Science performed exceptionally well achieving 100% across the board in the separate Sciences of Physics, Chemistry and Biology with the overall percentage in the category of two Sciences being 71% A*-C, showing a 9% point increase on 2016.
Results confirm that students did magnificently despite the more challenging content of this year’s examinations as a result of top quality, specialist subject teaching and our consistent belief in aiming high, whilst working hard to achieve the best for students at all ability levels.
As Headteacher I am proud of this stunning set of results achieved during a time of nationally increasing challenge making the outcomes of our students all the more impressive.
I would like to thank all the students and parents for their commitment and dedication and the staff of CCC for always being prepared to go the extra mile. This was your day.

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 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.”
As a successful school we move into an expanding future as a centre of educational excellence where all can, ‘Learn More and Achieve the Best.’ We place great value on partnership and good relationships between parents, carers, students, staff and governors. Through our partnerships including our Co-operative Trust of local primary schools, education and business associates we ensure that all are equally valued, and that achievement, success and opportunity lie at the heart of all we do.
I hope that you find the information on this website helpful and informative, however, if you would like to find out more about the school in action visit us to ‘Learn More’ at any time, you will always be welcome.
