Glittering Prizes for Cape's Finest

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.

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.
