With the potential to study at higher ranked universities with cheaper, occasionally zero, tuition fees, or at more focused specialist educational establishments, applications to overseas universities have increased in recent years.
We offer outstanding provision and support for those who show an interest in studying abroad, or equally, for boarders who are returning home for undergraduate studies.
Studying Abroad has become an enticing option for many with increased tuition fees from universities in the UK and an increasing number of employers expecting to see international experience on the CV’s of their employees. Obtaining a degree from a foreign university is now a viable option for many and Mrs. Lucy Jupp, Overseas Universities Advisor, provides expert advice to students and parents at information evenings and in one-to-one meetings; guiding students in the early stages as well as coordinating all aspects of their application right through to the submission deadline, for all universities in all countries. She regularly invites guest speakers to talk to students, with admissions tutors from all over the world visiting the school. As a Spanish and French teacher who has lived abroad, she is in a strong position to guide students through the cultural and linguistic benefits of living overseas.

DEVELOPING INDIVIDUAL EXCELLENCE AT EVERY LEVEL
Because we believe that academic excellence is an important part of human excellence. Every child is an individual and we celebrate and develop their uniqueness, helping them to become an independent learner and encouraging each child to explore, understand and cultivate their talent and abilities, whatever they may be.
To inspire creativity, ignite imaginations and help each pupil to find and fully develop his or her talents.
Because we value the development of pupils’ imaginative and creative dimensions as well as their characters. Through a broad curriculum and wide range of co-curricular activities, pupils discover the important balance between creative and logical thinking. These opportunities are fundamental to ensuring your son or daughter discovers their hidden gifts, developing a sense of individuality and a confidence in their own abilities.
DEVELOPING PUPILS WHO ARE AT EASE WITH THEMSELVES AND EACH OTHER
Because we want every pupil to be comfortable in their own skin, celebrating the uniqueness of each individual in the school community. Through drama, presenting and public speaking opportunities, as well as appearing in productions and concerts, pupils learn key communication skills and gain the confidence to prosper in the real world.
To forge pupil characters and ambition through challenges and opportunities.
Because we believe that essential life skills are often best taught outside of the classroom, balancing an academic education. Through a wide-ranging co-curricular programme, we offer every child the chance to participate, perform and lead in the fields of their choice. In a competitive world these opportunities are fundamental to ensuring your son or daughter develops essential life skills and an ambition for life.
DEVELOPING STUDENTS WHO RESPECT OTHER PEOPLE AND THE WORLD AROUND THEM
Because our mission challenges us to be a vibrant community which enables people to live their lives to the full and transform society for the better. Located in the heart of Cornwall, our distinctive, serene location supports the development of balanced, unpretentious and reflective children who understand their role as global citizens.
ENCOURAGING PUPILS TO DEVELOP THEIR OWN WAY OF THINKING
Because we encourage pupils towards a personally developed life philosophy. Underlying all that we do is a solid foundation based on the ethos and values of Christianity. We nurture and challenge each individual child in a caring environment that is inclusive, enjoys the diversity within our School Community and beyond, and supports a genuine desire to question what we see and what we know.
