Welcome to Great Torrington Community School & Sports College
Great Torrington Community School and Sports College is a good school. High expectations and a strong focus on learning ensure pupils achieve well. Pupils enjoy coming to school, which is demonstrated by their outstanding attendance and positive behaviour. The school's work as a specialist sports college is very effective in promoting pupils' health and fitness and developing their self-esteem. They learn to take responsibility and many participate in the extensive range of clubs and sporting activities.
The curriculum is broad and provides for a wide range of capabilities and interests. The school works well with external partners, both to enrich the curriculum and to provide a high level of care, guidance and support for pupils. The high quality of teaching ensures pupils make good progress and achieve standards which are better than average. This is demonstrated by the consistently good results pupils gain in examinations. Arrangements for setting learning targets and checking on pupils' progress are generally very good and are a significant factor in raising standards.
