Learning is what we are all here
for. We inspire and challenge
students to go further than they
ever thought was possible, and we
give them the support that each
needs in order to succeed.
Students learn in a way which
develops independence of mind,
gives them a thirst for new
knowledge and the experience
which enables them to carry on
learning for life.
We create a purposeful and
stimulating environment for
learning within the College and
provide opportunities for learning
in the local community and across
Lessons at Kingsbridge are exciting:
many parents and grandparents
who visit us wish that they could
come back to school again!a
Sixth Form. We talk carefully with students and parents to help choose appropriate subjects in combinations which open gateways to Higher Education and employment beyond.
Every year our results are well-above national averages, and at both KS3 and GCSE we are one of the very top schools in Devon. We are as proud of those who enter the College with learning difficulties and achieve their own best as we are of those who each year go on to Oxbridge.
Schools can sometimes appear rather large and mysterious institutions from the outside. We work very hard to get to know each of our students as an individual, and to care for each one. Several generations of some families have attended the College, and other students join us part way through the year from other parts of the country. We are delighted at how quickly they settle. We want to identify the needs of each individual, and provide the particular support which each needs - emotional or academic - in order to take on new challenges and succeed.
|SPECIALIST SCIENCE COLLEGE|
We were very proud to be one of the first schools in the Country to be designated a Specialist Science College. We are committed, in partnership with our local schools, Colleges and businesses, to developing Science and Maths in ways that inspire and challenge. Specialist Science status enables us to raise achievement in these subjects and across the curriculum. As a centre of excellence for Science and Maths teaching, we are at the cutting edge of spreading good practice across the country.
The very best practice in Science and Maths teaching can be found in our classrooms, and our students come into contact with expert leaders in their fields, such as visits to Nottingham University to work with Professor Roberts or the University of Reading coming here to work on cloning techniques with students in workshops.We are linked to businesses across the country through video conferencing, including the Met Office. Our new technology rich eco-lab is the venue for our community work, including visits from all our Primary Schools.
The Sixth Form at Kingsbridge Community College is a special place with a distinctive atmosphere. Yes, we have high expectations of everybody in the team: both staff and students: and life is pressured, but the support to aspire to great things is always there. Whatever course you are following, you are welcomed.
We believe strongly that everybody is of equal importance and we value and respect each other’s opinions. Our world is ordered but it is exciting. There are always new challenges to take on and we expect all members of the Sixth Form to find ways of broadening their horizons, through academic and vocational excellence, travel, leadership, community service and work experience. Our reputation is special in the community.We always say that the Sixth Form at Kingsbridge is for life and we are visited by past students often and our door is always open.Our Sixth Formers are very successful and carry our aims and values into the world. Continuity and support are rare and valuable in this complex society and we like to think that we make a difference to the lives of everybody who passes through our doors.
