Students are able to fulfil their potential through the Falmouth Learning Journey; being ready to learn, using a great teaching model, building their learning every day and experiencing a culture where everyone does their best.

How do we do this? Our curriculum is rich and diverse; providing experiences and possibilities for all. This richness runs from Year 7 to Year 13.

Our curriculum is carefully and judiciously planned to ensure that knowledge, skills and understanding are delivered to students in such way as prior learning is a building block for future learning. In this way students encounter education as an incremental process whereby previous learnt skills are continually reinforced so that learning can be ‘mastered,' while at the same time new content is presented is a sequential way: for example, in a subject like English, students may explore the theme of ‘love and relationships' through a range of increasingly sophisticated and challenging texts as they progress through the curriculum. Moreover, the theme of love and relationships itself is explored in more complex ways demanding an increasing level of maturity and understanding from the student.

We have four Learning Cycles which make each year's learning programme from Year 7 to Year 11 - these allow for learning across the year to be divided into four periods of deep learning. Each period consists of 7 weeks of teaching that are sequenced carefully through Yellow Sheets. Building on learning and allowing for maximum progression. Throughout KS3, KS4 and KS5 topics are revisited, built upon and mastered. These 7 weeks are followed by review and mastery week where the focus turns to consolidation and evaluation of the material that has been taught. All students are provided with a Knowledge Organiser each cycle for every subject which are used in lessons.

There are three key areas of learning - all lessons at Falmouth are taught using; Blooms Taxonomy, Co-Operative Learning and Metacognition. All of which encourage students to become independent, resilient learners who are able to both work and lead teams effectively.

Students are supported from Year 7-11 in making the right choices for their move into our post-16 provision; Falmouth College.

We offer a broad range of subjects both academic and vocational and an extensive enrichment programme so students continue their journey smoothly into Year 12. Students leave our post-16 College to attend a variety of universities including those of the Russell group, and also our vocational pathways lead students into apprenticeships and employment.

We have productive partnerships with Falmouth and Exeter universities and local businesses. Students can use state of the art facilities and have access to experts in a range of disciplines. We are blessed with a fabulous school site in extensive grounds in beautiful part of Cornwall. Falmouth is regularly identified in the media as one of the best places to live in the UK. We take pride in our site and work hard to develop and maintain the school facilities for the benefit of the whole community. Our most recent venture has been the development of an all-weather pitch and Sports Hub. This impressive development provides a focus for sport for everyone in the area.
