Cape goes Back To The Future!
A time-travelling sports car, a mad scientist, and an all-American teenager who lands back in 1955. The unmistakeable ingredients of one of the most loved movies of the 1980s.

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!"
