Welcome to Helston

 

At Helston Community College, our students matter: each one an individual, valued and appreciated. We are ambitious for all of our students and are committed to providing a learning experience that consists of high challenge combined with appropriate support, and effective teaching in a safe and disciplined environment.

Our College is a place where doors of opportunity are opened for young people, and we encourage them to make the most of every opportunity that comes their way. We provide a diverse curriculum, allowing students to develop knowledge, skills and talents in a broad range of subject areas. We challenge students’ thinking and encourage them to learn from setbacks, so that they become resilient learners who can respond effectively to future challenges. We urge our students to believe in themselves, to take responsibility for their own learning and personal development, and to work hard so that they achieve their very best.

Helston Community College is part of Truro and Penwith Academy Trust.

 
Truro & Penwith Academy Trust was established in April 2014 and initially sponsored three schools – a secondary school and two primary schools – with Truro and Penwith College. The Trust is aligned in terms of ethos and vision with the College and is committed to improving the life chances of the children and young people in schools within the Trust.

The Trust has grown over the last four years with schools choosing to become academies within the Trust, establishing distinctive geographic hubs of schools in Penwith, around Truro and in the Clays area to the east.

At the heart of the Trust’s vision is a commitment to developing and supporting high quality teaching and leadership in all our schools, and to the professional development of our teams through close partnership with Cornwall Teaching School.
