Falmouth School

At Falmouth School we believe in high expectations and high standards. We set challenging targets for students and we encourage and support them to achieve their targets. Over the past 3 years we have consistently achieved results that place us as one of the top schools in Cornwall, please see the results section of the website for more details. We believe in a culture of excellence whereby we expect the best of everyone, whether students or staff. Considerable professional development time is spent ensuring that our staff employ the most effective methods, drawn from research, to encourage the best learning outcomes possible from our students. We expect our students to be ‘Ready to Learn’, by attending school, being equipped and focussed on learning and taking responsibility for their own development. We have a behaviour support structure that allows teachers to deal quickly and efficiently with any low level disruption with minimum interruption to the learning process. We expect students to behave respectfully so that everyone can achieve their potential and misbehaviour has clear sanctions. Our uniform policy encourages students to dress smartly and we enforce our uniform rules to ensure this. We expect students to attend school every day, absence affects progress and so must be avoided whenever possible.

Helston Community College

At Helston Community College, our students matter: each one an individual, valued and appreciated. We are ambitious for all of our students and are committed to providing a learning experience that consists of high challenge combined with appropriate support, and effective teaching in a safe and disciplined environment. Our College is a place where doors of opportunity are opened for young people, and we encourage them to make the most of every opportunity that comes their way. We provide a diverse curriculum, allowing students to develop knowledge, skills and talents in a broad range of subject areas. We challenge students’ thinking and encourage them to learn from setbacks, so that they become resilient learners who can respond effectively to future challenges. We urge our students to believe in themselves, to take responsibility for their own learning and personal development, and to work hard so that they achieve their very best.

Penryn College

We’re a lively thriving college, and we pride ourselves on offering the very best for our students. Penryn College caters for boys and girls aged between 11 and 16 years who mainly live in Penryn Town and the surrounding villages of Constantine, Flushing, Mabe, Mawnan Smith, Mylor, Perranwell and Ponsanooth. Students also join us from outlying villages and Falmouth. The PAN for each year group is 210, but the occupational capacity is slightly different by year groups. Currently we are oversubscribed in all year groups.
Penryn College opened originally in Falmouth in 1957 and was moved to its present site in 1961. Since that time there has been a programme of continuous improvement and updating of buildings and classrooms. Our biggest development though was the opening in 2008 of our £24 million pound new College building. We have a great range of resources that help us meet the needs of students and the community. For example, through a partnership with the university , we were able to build a 6 badminton court size sports hall and have the latest generation astro turf pitch.
