Celebrating 60 Years of Outstanding Education for our Community
On Monday, 15 July Ivybridge Community College held its official celebration of 60 years of secondary education at the site.
The ceremony was held with VIP’s, the Ivybridge Mayor, members of the Governing Board and honoured guest, Sir Gary Streeter. He had taken time out from his busy schedule to undertake the unveiling of the commemorative plaque, which denotes the 60 years between 1958 – 2019.
In his speech, Sir Gary said, “the one thing I have learnt over the years is that most organisations run well because of leadership. Schools like this are outstanding and of such a high quality. The College has been fortunate to have three spectacular Heads in a row and not many schools are quite like this. The school has now gone to another level again. The Principal is surrounded by a great leadership team.”
Sir Gary also commented on the “wonderful” artwork on display at the event.
