Sir James Smith's Community School

North Cornwall School Success

Secondary schools in North Cornwall generally perform better than the national average.  However, only one school exceeds the national average across 7 of the 8 indicators in the table below.  Sir James Smith’s located in Camelford and the second smallest school in Cornwall is celebrating the exceptional success of its pupils.  Headteacher, Jon Lawrence, says “our pupils perform brilliantly against local schools and in almost all of the key indicators come out at, or near, the top of the 32 secondary schools in Cornwall.

Regardless of ability, all our pupils performed magnificently, at least 4th best in County.  Our brightest pupils performed better here than in any other Cornish school, something made possible by the partnership working of teachers, pupils and parents/carers.

No school in Cornwall added more value to the performance of its most disadvantaged pupils than Sir James Smith’s did.  This is a school where all pupils matter and no-one is left behind, a virtue of being a small school. We set high standards and have ambitious expectations of all our students.  We are so proud of how well our pupils have done and are looking forward to continued success in the future.  The school has undergone a transformation in the last few years and we are now seeing the result of this".
