Glittering prizes for Cape’s finest students

The cream of Cape Cornwall will be stepping into the limelight to receive recognition for their talents and achievements at our annual Awards Evening. Awards are made for excellence in various subjects. Special awards will be made to those who have exceeded expectations in their efforts in and outside of school or made tremendous personal progress. Presenting some of the awards is A-list designer Samuel Dougal (pictured) who has designed gowns for Madonna, Beyonce and Rihanna. Find out more here along with a reminder of last year's winners.

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.
