Callywith leavers celebrate their last days at college

Student leavers said their final farewells to fellow classmates and teachers as they celebrated completing a challenging but enjoyable two years at the College.

Callywith Principal Dr Jon Grey shared how proud he and staff at the College are of the students: “We are so proud of each and every one of our student leavers and everything they have overcome and achieved during their time with us.

“It’s been amazing to have been able to say goodbye to them all properly this year and to see them celebrating their last days of college with their classmates and teachers.

“We hope they have a fantastic summer and can’t wait to see what the future holds for them all. We look forward to welcoming some of them back to inspire the next generation of Callywith students.”

During their last week, many students took the time to reflect on their positive experiences at the ‘Outstanding’ College, with one student saying: “Callywith is a very welcoming place where I made many new friends. The teachers are always really supportive, not even just work-wise, which shows they’re all very caring. It’s definitely been an experience to remember and that I’ll miss a lot.”

Another student shared their experience of learning through the pandemic: “My experience at Callywith was amazing! It was unfortunate that our college year was disrupted by covid-19, but all of my lecturers quickly adapted to this way of life and still made it enjoyable.”

One of the students who made the most of the many additional opportunities available to students whilst studying at the College, shared: “I loved that Callywith offered so many extra-curricular activities (including Debate Club and sport academies) and that it really cares about the students. The pastoral care here is exceptional. All of the facilities are also really good. I am so grateful for my time at Callywith and I would 100% recommend it. I will really miss studying here.”

Another student shared their high praises of the opportunities and staff at the College: “Callywith provides so many fantastic opportunities for its students like the Law Bar Mock Trial competition and being a Student Ambassador. The College really care about the wellbeing of students. My lecturers have always been empowering and motivating and also have been approachable when I have had any issues. I couldn’t have asked for a better place to study!”

The end of term for the College’s leavers comes after two successful years that saw the college rated Outstanding in all categories by Ofsted in January 2020, ranked as the top sixth-form college nationally for qualification achievement rate and topping local league tables for A Level results in Spring 2020.
