Welcome from the Headteacher Mrs Phelan

Welcome to Cullompton Community College, a caring, friendly and high achieving community of learners of approximately 500 students aged 11-16.

We are proud and delighted that an inspection by Ofsted in January 2013 confirmed Cullompton Community College to be a ‘good school.’ This follows hugely successful outcomes in GCSE examinations showing year on year improvement.

Students and staff at Cullompton Community College are absolutely delighted with this year’s exceptional GCSE results which represent massive progress for the year group and demonstrate yet another year of dramatic improvement with a 5% increase on the previous year. Students achieved 73% in the GCSE gold standard of 5+A*-C including English and maths and scored an impressive 36% success in the Ebacc subjects of English, Mathematics, Humanities and Languages. Joint English and maths outcomes were 75% and English A*-C results were stunning at 88% with maths also far exceeding national benchmarks with 78% A*- C. Progress in Maths and English show students making massive gains. Science equally scored highly with 100% in the separate Sciences and Core and Additional Science 2+ A*-C achieving 63%.

Results confirm that students did magnificently as a result of subject specialist, quality teaching and our consistent belief in high aspiration and the absolute conviction that each individual should reach their best. As Headteacher I couldn’t be more pleased with this stunning set of results and I would like to thank all the students, parents for their hard work and dedication and the staff for always being prepared to go the extra mile.

We celebrate this outstanding achievement against the backdrop of a nationally increasing level of challenge which makes the outcomes of our students all the more impressive.

At Cullompton Community College students of all aptitudes and abilities are actively encouraged to, “Believe, Achieve and Succeed” to the highest levels. Our young people benefit from highly qualified and exceptionally committed staff and creative, innovative teaching which builds learning and strong relationships. We believe in providing a well rounded education with opportunities for leadership, and a wide range of extra curricular activities including, Duke Of Edinburgh awards, Ten Tors, Ski Trip, World Challenge, links and visits with our partner school in Namibia, musical theatre, performance, and sporting excellence. There is something for everyone.

Staff and students treat each other with respect, and behaviour across the school is good. Students feel safe and are proud of their community school. Attendance is above average.

Teachers have an accurate understanding of the ability levels of each students and set work accordingly, encouraging high levels of independence and aspiration.

Students are respectful and courteous towards each other, working well in groups and respecting the views of others.
