  • Brilliant to welcome local MP Scott Mann to Callywith this week to speak to students at our weekly Academic Academy session which included students taking our new Politics A-level. Scott delivered a talk on the process of becoming an MP and the functions and duties of members of Parliament, as well as giving students the opportunity to ask questions and challenge him on a range of important issues from feminism to Brexit!

  • It’s brilliant to see our new first year students getting to know each other by working together in some great team-building challenges! Art and Design Diploma students were set the challenge to build the tallest free standing tower they could from newspaper which also had to support an egg at it's tallest point. There were some ingenious designs and some amazingly tall towers, the tallest being just over 3 metres! We’re pleased to say that no eggs were harmed throughout the task 👏🏼

  • BUS UPDATE: Buses via Camelford (180 from Yeolmbridge and 181 from Piper’s Pool)

We have been informed that the 180 from Yeolmbride was quite crowded especially past Camelford. We recommend anyone wanting a bus from Camelford gets on the 181 at Highfield Road rather than the Spar Shop.  The 181 follows the same route as the 180 after Camelford so anyone wanting to board between Valley Truckle and Dunmere can also use the 181. 🚌 Buses via Liskeard
(11 from Plymouth and 179 from Gunnislake) The 11 bus was also very busy this morning.  Plymouth Citybus have a stop at Charter Way (Morrisons) on the OPPOSITE side of the road for the 179 which stops there at 0820 and at the Post Office at 0823.  We recommend anyone wanting to board at Post Office or Morrisons waits and gets this bus rather than the 11.

If you have any queries, please contact us on 01208 224000

  • Callywith Psychology Lecturer Beca certainly made the most of her Summer break by setting herself the challenge to hike and wild camp along the South West coastal path from Minehead to Lands End over 20 days!

Beca took up the challenge to raise money for spinal injuries charity, Back Up, raising an amazing £800. The money has been able to provide training for an individual to become a chair instructor for new chair users.

Well done Beca!

  • All of our students did us proud with their results last week, but here are just some of the outstanding individual success stories.

Cali-Mai Willett from Saltash achieved straight A’s in Biology, Chemistry and Maths A Levels and is going on to study Medicine at the University of Bristol. On top of her studies, Cali-Mai was also a member of the Medics’ Academy at Callywith. “I can’t recommend the Medics’ Academy enough to anyone considering a medical application, it’s so helpful in both making a strong application and deciding if medicine is for you. It’s a massive achievement for me to get into medical school and I’m really excited about starting in September.” Ian Lamb from Tintagel was also delighted to achieve straight A’s in Economics, History and Law A Levels. “I feel absolutely fantastic, I really didn’t expect it! “My teachers have always been brilliant at engaging me and getting me interested in the subjects I am studying. “Staff of all levels - my tutor, lecturers, the senior management team and the Principal included - have always been very approachable and helpful and I have always been able to talk to them about my problems.” Well done Cali-Mai and Ian! 👏🏼👏🏼 Find out more about just some of our students’ success stories below:

  • Our very first students have really done themselves proud with some truly exceptional grades.

Here are just some of their success stories!

A Level student Rebecca Langford from Bodmin couldn’t believe it when she opened her envelope to see A*, A*, A next to her subjects, “I’m completely shocked, but really, really happy and a little bit overwhelmed, I can’t believe it! My tutor Lisa played a huge part in my application to Oxbridge and she really encouraged me to do it even when I was reluctant. I’m so pleased I came here, it’s fulfilled all of my expectations and more, it’s been brilliant!” Rebecca is now looking forward to studying a degree in Education in Psychology and Learning at University of Cambridge.

Neo Cass, from Liskeard who is going on to study Computer Science and Maths at the University of Bath, was delighted to achieve A*, A, A in his subjects. Neo couldn’t speak highly enough of the staff that have helped him to achieve his results: “The lecturers, senior management and support staff at Callywith have all given me excellent academic, emotional and personal support throughout my time here.” A Level students weren’t the only ones celebrating their success. Megan Chadd from Wadebridge achieved a triple distinction* in BTEC Business (the highest possible grade for this qualification) and is delighted to have secured a place to study Business Management at the University of Gloucestershire. She said: “I’m really pleased with my achievements today, all the staff at Callywith have been really supportive and helpful and even gave up their free time to teach me everything I needed to know again for my re-sits.” Well done Rebecca, Neo and Megan! 👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼 Find out more about just some of our students success stories: www.callywith.ac.uk/latest-news
