<p>Helston Community College, in Cornwall, was recognised by OFSTED in November 2013 as a "Good School" (with 'outstanding' for student behaviour). The College extends across a wide campus, serving 1427 students from age 11 - 19, as well as adults undertaking Foundation Degrees. <br /><br />The College is a Foundation Co-operative Trust. The Trust comprises The College, The Diocese of Truro (representing Churches Together in Helston), University College Falmouth, Cornwall College, Truro College, Careers South West and Cornwall Council. It supports the school in offering the students the greatest range of opportunities particularly at age 14 -19. <br /><br />The College Campus is located on three sites within easy walking distance of each other. The South Site houses the Faculties of Cultural Studies and Visual and Performing Arts. It is also the tutor base for the Year 7 students and where the Learning Development Teach has its Centre. <br /><br />On the North site the College has a wide range of Sports Facilities, which include Sports Hall, a Gymnasium, two fitness suites, an All Weather Multi Use Games Area and a Swimming Pool. This is housed in the Helston Sport and Leisure Centre which shares our campus and with whom we have close links. All the students are encouraged to make as much use as possible of these facilities during the College day and when formal lessons end. There is a wide range of sports activities available. <br /><br />Information Technology is well resourced in the College with seven designated computer rooms, together with smaller computer outlets throughout the College giving access to excellent information processing facilities. These are supplemented by other equipment including satellite dishes which geographers use to study world weather and enable language students to sample European TV or radio programmes. Teaching is enhanced across the whole College through the use of computer-linked, interactive whiteboards in the majority of classrooms and every classroom has a computer and digital projector.<br /><br />The College has invested heavily in the provision of vocational courses, and we have created specialist facilities for Building Construction, Motor Vehicle Engineering, Horticulture and Small Animal Care, Hair and Beauty and Health and Social Care which includes a Day Nursery.<br /><br />The Sixth Form students have a separate social base. The wide range of extra curricular and community activities provided adds considerably to the quality of life in the College and to that of the town.<br /><br /></p>
