At Helston Community College, our students matter: each one an individual, valued and appreciated. We are ambitious for all of our students and are committed to providing a learning experience that consists of high challenge combined with appropriate support, and effective teaching in a safe and disciplined environment.

Our College is a place where doors of opportunity are opened for young people, and we encourage them to make the most of every opportunity that comes their way. We provide a diverse curriculum, allowing students to develop knowledge, skills and talents in a broad range of subject areas. We challenge students’ thinking and encourage them to learn from setbacks, so that they become resilient learners who can respond effectively to future challenges. We urge our students to believe in themselves, to take responsibility for their own learning and personal development, and to work hard so that they achieve their very best.

Helston Community College is part of the Southerly Point Co-operative Multi-Academy Trust, which was established on 1st June 2017. The College's ethos and work is under-pinned by the co-operative values: self–help, self-responsibility, equity, equality, democracy and solidarity; and the co-operative ethical principles: honesty, openness, social responsibility and caring for others. The Trust works together to improve and enhance opportunities for all young people in the local community.


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. 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. 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.

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.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.
