Fowey Community College students are more likely to stay in education post-16 than the average in Cornwall according to new data from Careers South West.
The Destinations 2012 Report, published on 15th April, is a collation of information on the options young people choose after leaving Year 11 and Year 13 in Cornwall & The Isles of Scilly, Devon, Plymouth, Torbay and Somerset.
The report states that 96.9% of Fowey students remain In Learning this year compared to 93.1% for the county. This includes college, apprenticeships and work-based training. Just 1% of Fowey’s former students are Not in Education or Training (NEET) compared to 2.3% across the county.
Mr Perry says: “This report offers a really valuable set of data to schools in the south west. We’re delighted that so many of our students choose to stay in education and we’re fortunate to have great choices for further education here in Cornwall.”
