Launceston College is part of the Athena Learning Trust alongside Altarnun Primary, Atlantic Academy, Bideford College, Egloskerry Primary and Launceston Primary School.

Launceston College is a large and established 11 – 18 secondary school in Launceston, Cornwall.

The belief at Launceston College is that the most vital part of any school is the people who make it what it is. Our students enjoy being part of our school community and we have a strong team of staff at the College who are united in encouraging students to work hard, to achieve their best and to respect others. To do this we believe that students need to be fully challenged and supported within a caring environment.

We believe that students should have all their achievements recognised, acknowledged and given credit; no child, however, should ever take away another child’s right to a high-quality education. The College is therefore run in a well-disciplined, orderly and respectful manner; we have rules and we expect students to follow them. Our very high expectations for standards of behaviour from all students were recognised by Ofsted in their most recent inspection who judged the behaviour of our students to be “outstanding”.

We are committed to the pursuit of individual excellence and achievement whilst ensuring that no-one is left behind. We believe in the education of the whole person and try to provide a range of experiences which promote the spiritual, moral, social and cultural development of our students; we are an accredited “Adventure Learning School” and provide a wide range of adventurous learning opportunities both inside the curriculum and beyond.
