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 even offers funded transport for some students so that they may attend this nurturing school (please contact Miss Maria Wilkinson, senior leader, for further details of how we can 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 a family oriented approach in a small school
Cape to become a Centre of Excellence in financial education
Did you know that 10 is the average age that young people start buying stuff from the internet? Here at Cape our students are being taught about money and personal finance after the school was picked to join a national Centre of Excellence programme in financial education. Head teacher Mrs Nash said: "We know just how important it will be for our students to manage their money well throughout their lives. These skills don’t come automatically – they need to be taught, and as it is our responsibility to prepare them for adult life we believe embedding financial education into our school curriculum is a necessity.” Find out more about the project here.

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!"
