College Information

Bodmin College is a large 11-19 establishment providing, what we consider to be, an outstanding educational experience in which we maintain high standards of achievement and traditional values within a disciplined and caring environment of opportunity. Students are encouraged to enjoy their education, to develop respect for others and, through assuming responsibility, to develop as reliable and mature individuals ready to take an active role in adult life.

Our College is characterised by its vision of, 'striving for excellence by putting the learner first'. We aim, in all that we do, to put your child at the centre of our decision making processes and at the heart of our four key objectives, which are:

  • To improve the attainment and progress of all students in all subjects.
  • To improve the educational opportunities for all students in all subjects.
  • To improve the quality of the learning experience for all students in all subjects.
  • To assist and work in partnership with parents and carers to improve students' spiritual, moral, social and cultural development.

This vision and our objectives are underpinned by an ethos in which we expect everyone to be kind, be polite, be honest and to work to the very best of their ability. With notable success as a High Performing Specialist College, we were assessed by the National College for Teaching and Learning and were the first to achieve the Specialist Quality Mark in the country.

More recently our journey with the Specialist Schools and Academies Trust has seen our committed involvement in 'The Framework for Excellence, a journey towards a world-class education system.' Within this structure, assessment has been robust and challenging, yet one in which we have been successfully recognised as providing 'exceptional education' through our 'principled curriculum design', 'leadership through moral purpose' and in our 'climate for learning' (SSAT, 2017). We have received national recognition for raising aspirations, removing barriers to social mobility, and opening up world-class opportunities to our students (Finalists in 2019 & 2020).
