The Community College Bishop’s Castle is once again celebrating another year of excellent results. Even with the persistent disruptions caused by Covid19, the students and staff at the Community College have worked tirelessly to continue to build on the excellent results they have had over the last three years. Headline figures show that 86% of students achieved a Grade 4 or above in English and Maths, 38% of all students attained one or more passes at Grade 7 or above.

Biology, Chemistry and Spanish produced particularly exceptional results, with more than 50% of those studying Biology and Chemistry achieving a Grade 7 or above. Many individual students gained excellent results, with some standout performances from Eleri Gittins and Ben Ellis who secured nine Grade 9s between them, as well as Megan Wooldridge, Lewis Beavan and Freya Davies who showed the most progress across their time at The Community College.

Mr Thorley (Headteacher) said: “Results day has been a pleasure to be part of. We are very proud of all of our students, especially with all of the disruption they have had to work through over the last two academic years. The resilience, hard work and effort put in by both students and staff has really paid off. The success is well deserved and sets our students up well for their next stage in life, and we look forward to seeing what they will achieve in the future”.

Students in key stage 3 follow a broad and balanced curriculum. The key stage 4 offer is based around a core set of GCSE subjects, with approximately fifteen subjects being offered as option choices each year. Students are provided with a range of qualifications that support transition to a diverse variety of post-16 routes into further education, training and employment.

There are four houses, Clive – Austen, Darwin – Keller, Sidney – Potter and Curie – Webb. Each has a Head of House and within each house there are six vertical coaching groups with approximately eighteen students. The focus within these coaching groups is supporting students to make excellent progress in all aspects of their school life. There is a strong sense of house loyalty in the College, with students assuming roles of responsibility and leadership.  There is also a strong emphasis on creating a nurturing environment for some of our more vulnerable students, with excellent provision in place during social times to support this. Student welfare is a priority with a strong team of staff working with students in need.

GCSE results are strong, and have continue to improve. Outcomes for all students demonstrate excellent progress during their time at The Community College. We have the interests of all our students at heart, and support them to achieve not only academically but also socially, to ensure that they are well supported to move forward to their next stage when they leave us.

Students are encouraged to broaden their horizons and set themselves aspirational goals during their time at the college. Students are frequently presented with opportunities to look beyond their immediate surroundings and take a wider, global view. Visits to France, Iceland and Tanzania give our students an insight into the wider world. Visitors from many different walks of life come to present their inspirational stories to our students, and our thorough and diverse careers programme encourages students to think big when it comes to their next steps.

There is a strong sense of community with strong links between The Community College, local schools and other local groups. Students go out to work with younger children in primary schools, we have regular Primary Games Festivals and host primary school students on site for taster sessions and enrichment activities. We encourage our students to consider how they can make a contribution to their local community and take advantage of the strong support offered by those within the local area to achieve this.
