Working with, and for, the community

At Exmouth Community College we are committed to work with and for the local community. We want to forge links which extend the possibilities for our students and to broaden the wealth of qualifications and experiences we can offer.

We believe that “Every Child Counts” and that the community and local business can play a part.

Our aim is to ensure that the young people of the area are better qualified, better informed and better equipped for the world of work and higher education. We invite you to have a role in that work helping us to provide courses and learning opportunities to increase and develop the skills of young people.

Business & Community Liaison

Modern schools have an extensive role to play within the community. No longer are they solely tasked with academic development in the traditional subject areas. A successful Community College will reflect the needs of local people, the business community and work to develop courses and programmes of benefit for all. In turn, the community has much to offer schools: expertise in the workplace, adult maturity to support and encourage students; joint projects for the benefit off all and much more.

Exmouth Community College has a good working relationship with the community and has been involved in projects which broaden the opportunities for students and community alike.

Stakeholders and Partners.  Stakeholders include parents/carers, students, governors and the community: all those who contribute to the ethos and development of the College.
