At Linton Village College everyone is a learner and every learner matters. We recognise that children and adults have different talents, like to learn in different ways and need different kinds of support.
The achievement of every single learner is what matters to us and we work hard to meet the needs of each individual.
Our excellent track record reveals how successful we have been at meeting these needs, but we believe that we can always improve and we aim to be the very best. Our mission is to be a world-class centre of learning and so we aim:
At Linton Village College we broaden horizons. As an International School Award winner, we bring the world to Linton and take Linton students out to see the world. The range of trips and expeditions we offer is extensive and impressive.
In recent years students have had opportunities to visit Sicily, Iceland, Paris, Barcelona, Croatia, Lanzarote, Austria, Belgium, Cambodia and South Africa. In Year 9, we encourage every child to go on a residential trip for a week in June.
We run language learning visits to France and Spain, ski trips in winter and scuba-diving trips in summer. The college Wind Orchestra and choir perform abroad most years. Many of our students enjoy their involvement with the Duke of Edinburgh's Award Scheme which takes them all over the UK on expeditions.
For over 10 years, LVC had a link with Boepathutse Junior Secondary School in Soshanguve township, South Africa. We raised thousands of pounds for our link school, hosted students and teachers in Linton and visited Boepathutse with student groups. By doing this, we made a difference to the lives of students in South Africa and helped students in Linton to understand difference. This tradition continued in 2017 when a group of Year 11 students visited Cambodila on a volunteer expedition with Camps International.
