See what we have to offer during Open Days
It’s time to show off how proud we are of our school – the best little secondary in the West! If you know anyone who has not made up their mind about which secondary school to go to in 2015 then read on. We are holding two open days where parents and carers can drop in to see what we are all about, witness our welcoming and caring ethos, take a tour of the school and ask questions.
A local visitor to one of our last open evenings wondered if he had wasted his money putting his children through a private school education. He said: “I have seen many schools in my life in Cornwall and Bedford and I have not come across a better school than yours. So friendly and welcoming. I wish I could come to your school myself!”
Another open evening visitor was persuaded to send his child to Cape Cornwall after delighting in the head boys' speech which he said was “warm, honest and incredibly funny”. The samples of “scrumptious” curry also helped!
So it will be business as usual for our brilliant staff and pupils during our two open days when visitors can observe lessons carrying on as normal. The dates are Wednesday 14th January, period 5 (2.10pm - 3.10pm) and Friday 16th January periods 3 and 4 (11.20am - 1.20pm). We want more local youngsters to share the advantages of both a high quality and a caring educational environment. Please let your friends know that they are welcome to stop by. We hope they like it as much as we do.

Welcome to Cape Cornwall School
At Cape Cornwall School, we believe that every child matters. Our student focused approach is central to our ethos, values and our learning culture. The support we offer has even funded transport for some students, so that they may attend this very nurturing school (please contact Miss Maria Wilkinson, senior leader, for further details of how we might be able to help).
We are a small school with big ambitions - committed to:
- Maintaining small class sizes that ensure each student receives personalised, individual support in order to learn
- A curriculum that matches our students’ needs and aspirations
- The relentless pursuit of high expectations where all successes are celebrated
- Supporting families who would like their child to experience a family oriented approach in a small school
Congratulations to the Class of 2014!
Cape Cornwall students celebrated some of saw some of the best GCSE results we've ever had over the summer with English and Maths bucking the national trend. Despite a fall in English nationally, Cape saw an increase of higher grades and Maths was also very strong with both subjects achieving more than 60 per cent as well as 85% in English Literature. More widely more subjects gained 100 A* to C grades and there were exceptional results in the English Baccalaureate subjects, building further on Cape's tradition of academic strength. Mrs Nash said: Thank you to all the parents and staff who have helped these students achieve so much. We are rightly very proud of them and wish them every success for their very bright futures!"
