Welcome to Helston Community College

It is a great pleasure to welcome you to our College Website. This site sets out the College's aims, and hopefully gives you a feel for the exciting range of educational opportunities we offer your child. I hope that in browsing it you will gain an understanding of the way we work, and of the principles for which we stand.

At Helston Community College we are ambitious for all our students.  Our College is a place where doors of opportunity are opened for students. We are committed to providing a personalised learning experience which ensures high challenge, inspirational teaching, a wide range of qualifications and an open door to the students' own unique futures. Our students will always be encouraged to step through those doors, to take responsibility for their own learning and personal development, to work hard and achieve their very best.

Our students matter: each one an individual, valued and appreciated.

Helston Community College is part of a local Education Co-operative Trust. The College's ethos and work is under-pinned by the co-operative values: self–help, self-responsibility, equity, equality, democracy and solidarity; and the co-operative ethical principles: honesty, openness, social responsibility and caring for others. The Trust works together to improve and enhance opportunities for all young people in the local community.

We recognise that it takes a whole community to educate a child and so we are committed to working in partnership with parents, carers, statutory agencies, community organisations and other educational establishments. With everyone working together, we are able to draw on all the resources available to meet the needs and aspirations of our students.

Mrs D Bryant
Head Teacher
