New Head and new partnership for school

It is all change at the top as our head teacher Mrs Nash leaves for pastures new and her deputy Mr Chris Denley takes the helm from September. He said: “Working with Humphry Davy is a real positive, giving each of us the opportunity to share ideas and ensure and excellent quality of provision in West Penwith.” Read more about the changes here.

Our head teacher is among four teachers who are joining students in taking GCSE exams this terms. Mrs Nash wanted to challenge criticisms that they are easier now than in years gone by. 

Studying for and sitting a religious education GCSE enabled her to see for herself what her students were experiencing. Find out how she got on in her mock and what she thinks of her students now, having sat a GCSE herself.

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

Celebrating the best of Cape Cornwall School

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.
