Independent School Cornwall, UK | Day and Boarding School
Every year the mothers and fathers of over 1000 children entrust us to ensure that their sons and daughters get the best possible education.
We challenge, inspire and support pupils as individuals to grow intellectually, personally and spiritually, and to achieve their potential. We aim to inspire a life-long interest in learning, equipping pupils with the essential skills to tackle the future with confidence and a degree of independence, and to succeed in whatever careers they choose.

It is for this reason that we prevail to offer a wide-ranging curriculum alongside a plethora of co-curricular activities and pastoral care in order to develop well-rounded, sociable and unpretentious young people.
