Our Trust aims for young people to become happy, responsible and successful by learning the knowledge, skills and values which are important for society.

We seek to develop adventurous students, who have the character, resilience and self-awareness required to be successful. We have exceptionally high aspirations for our students and seek to support them no matter what their background or circumstances.

We offer a distinctively broad, personalised, and academically rigorous curriculum across our primary and secondary schools, and aspire to the highest standards of teaching and learning.

As a Trust we share information and best practices to ensure we focus on an excellent and sustainable 0-19 learning journey for children, with a strong focus on our school and Trust community.

The Trust offers expert guidance and advice to students to help them shape and achieve their future goals without limitation. We want to equip every student with the knowledge, skills and values they need to achieve the very best that they can.

We have a teaching and learning strategy which provides an overarching intent for the highest standards across learning environments, aspiration challenge and support, subject expertise and deep thinking and learning.

We seek applicants who are aligned to our aim and vision and have the talent and passion to deliver that vision successfully. We support all our schools with our Trust-wide leadership and management, teaching and learning, school improvement, financial, administrative, estates, safeguarding and HR expertise.

Our College

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.

We will offer:
● A modern, well equipped expanding college with outstanding facilities.
● A large team of dedicated and committed staff.
● A culture which seeks to be fair, developmental, and supportive of staff and pupils.
● A large support network across the primary and secondary settings.
● A focus on staff wellbeing.
● Generous pension and holidays.
● Attractive pay and opportunities to develop skills across the Trust.
● Support from cross Trust systems and leaders.
