BBC TV primetime slot for our students

Minack Theatre students

"Talented and articulate" was the view of BBC crews who filmed some of our most able actors for a TV special marking the 400th anniversary of Shakespeare's death. 

Our students were filmed at The Minack Theatre and Abby Cander and Millie Brolly were interviewed by presenter Joe Crowley. 

The students were there performing their version of the Bard's "A Winter's Tale". Drama teacher Mrs Lyndsay Perry said she was very impressed with their interpretation and how well they did in front of the camera. "They were fantastic!". Watch our students in action yourself here and see the interviews (about 49 minutes into the programme). 

Glittering Prizes for Cape's Finest

Sam Dougal and Sierra

The cream of Cape Cornwall School stepped into the limelight to receive recognition at our annual Awards Evening last week. Awards were made for excellence in various subjects and for achievements in and outside of school. 

Our Head Boys and Head Girls hosted the evening and A-list designer Sam Dougal presented the most prestigious awards. He inspired our students to face their fears in order to "live the life that you dream of". Click here for more information and to see our winners' photo gallery.

Musical celebration with Pearl of Africa

Pearl of Africa concert

An all-singing, all-dancing troupe of musicians from the Pearl of Africa troupe roused students from Cape Cornwall and surrounding schools during an afternoon of workshops. A tremendous evening concert was met with rapturous applause. The group have been touring schools throughout the country and money raised will help children in schools and homes in Uganda.

Relishing a taste of life at Cape Cornwall

Cape Cornwall student helps a year 6 pupil

Excited children from our feeder schools got a taste of life at Cape Cornwall School during our action-packed and stimulating Taster Day. From racing maggots in science to imagining life on a desert island through prose and drama - all skills were stretched. There was also learning about migration past and present in humanities and making a wheel of hands in art. Click here to watch a short film of the day's events. 


Our best GCSE results ever!

We are so pleased and proud of our GCSE students with 60 per cent gaining at least 5 A* - C grades including English and Maths. It is one of the best set of results for our school ever.

Bill Marshall, executive head, said; "Students and staff were grinning like ‘Cheshire Cats’ over the grades. The laser-like focus on quality teaching and personalised support for individual students resulted in some of the highest percentages in Cornwall for both English and Maths with 30 per cent attaining A* and A grades.
