Site Closure for Her Majesty's Funeral - Monday 19th

Dear Parents, Guardians and Students,

Considering recent events and the announcement of a public holiday for the funeral of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, we will not be opening on Monday 19th September, in line with DfE guidance.

This will allow individuals, businesses, and other organisations to pay their respects to Her Majesty and commemorate Her reign, while marking the final day of the period of national mourning.

We at TST will be holding a minute’s silence this coming Wednesday morning, giving us and our learners the opportunity to demonstrate our sadness and loss at the passing of the Queen.

May we remind you to cancel transport arrangements for the Monday.

College will be re-opening as normal on the 20th of September.

Yours sincerely

Mark Claridge

Head of Education

Students Celebrate the End of the 2021/22 Academic Year with a Sunny Awards Ceremony

Our students gathered on a gloriously sunny June afternoon at the double-pod section of Merryhue Farm to celebrate the end of another exciting year with Transferable Skills Training. There have been many things to celebrate this year, and it was topped off with several awards granted to the students from the Royal Cornwall Show.

Some of our students will be leaving for pastures new and, for them, our staff have a message:

Dear Leavers,

We want to thank each one of you for the memories and the learning we have shared this year. Our final message to you is… to believe in yourself, for you are stronger than you know. Try hard, but know your limits. Ask if you need help, and trust that others will help you. Remember: you are unique, special, and amazing people. Dream, believe, wonder, inspire, always listen and, above all, be kind.

Finally, remember: it might be you last day at TST, but we will always be here.

Take care, 
From everyone at TST

The Queen Bee at Mayfest 2022

Our staff and students have been busy bees recently, preparing a Queen Bee for the Callington Mayfest parade! Janice led the way to producing the massive papier-mache invertebrate, and we'd like to thank everybody to putting in the necessary effort to pull off something so good. We're pretty sure it caught the eyes of the Callington crowd on a sunny Saturday afternoon.

Here Comes the Sun - Summer Term

We would like to welcome everybody back! The Easter break has come and gone, and we hope that you feel refreshed and rejuvenated. 

As we enter the Summer term at Merryhue Farm, let's prepare for bright sunshine and warm weather. Always wear appropriate clothing and shoes, be aware of the need for suncream on the hottest days, and most importantly: let's enjoy ourselves!


Bowling at Trethorne Leisure Park

The students had a blast at Trethorne Park. They had a game of bowling to celebrate the hard work of the last term!

Her Royal Highness, The Princess Royal visits Merryhue Farm

Her Royal Highness, The Princess Royal visited Merryhue Farm in February, where she learned about the projects that the not for profit community interest companies Battling On, Work Skills South West, Transferable Skills Training and Grown That Way have been working on. We also had presenters from other local groups, including Age UK, Tamar Grow Local and Plymouth University.


We were absolutely thrilled to be able to have Her Royal Highness visit the farm, and we hope that she enjoyed it!

Happy Halloween to our Students!

We wish our students a Happy Halloween! We were very impressed with the ghosts that they made this year. Great effort from all involved!
