Welcome from the Chair of Governors, Peter Shrubsall
Dear Students, Parents and Carers,
As a Board of Governors we have but one vision for our College and that is to make it the one every parent in Cullompton and neighbouring villages wants to send their children to - because it truly does, "prepare young people for life". Of course the starting point is the provision of an excellent education. We were therefore delighted (but not surprised), when OFSTED judged Cullompton Community College as a ‘Good School’ in March 2017.
The next stage of our exciting journey is well under way with building improvements and additions planned and in partnership with local primary and secondary schools and education and business partners through our ‘Culm Co-operative Learning Partnership,’ a Co-operative Trust through which we work in collaboration to provide the best possible education and opportunities for all students. We are also working with the Dartmoor Teaching Alliance to help train teachers of the future.
As Cullompton grows, so will we because of our high standards of achievement but also because we are forward looking and ambitious for the College and the community it serves.
The Governor's main priorities are:
- To support and encourage staff and pupils to raise standards by ensuring that all pupils are given every opportunity to achieve their best.
- To support education by ensuring that the learning environment is safe, friendly, encouraging and constantly improving.
- To fulfill their "critical friend" rôle through monitoring, evaluation and improving all aspects of the school, with regard to school policies and procedures.
Over the last few years we have celebrated continuous improvement in our GCSE results. This upward trajectory has been achieved through the commitment of a dedicated team of teachers and support staff and the hard work of pupils supported by their parents, family, carers and friends.
We are proud of our excellent school and look forward with confidence knowing that we will continue to go from strength to strength. Please do not hesitate to contact the College if you require any further information.
