Sir James Smith’s is part of North Cornwall Learning Trust. Apart from being a ‘Good’ school, Sir Jim’s is also a great place to work. Visitors, including Ofsted, comment on the friendly and supportive atmosphere. Staff and students are happy and enjoy their time at school.

We are a smaller than average co-educational comprehensive school, serving a large rural hinterland in North Cornwall. It’s a fantastic place to live if you like the outdoors. Our extensive rural catchment area of 100 square miles includes 8 partner primary schools though we attract students from many others. The dispersed settlement pattern means approximately 70% of students travel daily by bus. North Cornwall is one of the least sparsely populated areas in England and Wales thanks to the glorious Bodmin Moor.

At present we have 38 teachers, and 40 non-teaching staff including 4 technicians, 1 Librarian, 8 admin assistants and 7 classroom assistants. The Local Governance Committee work closely with staff, as do various support agencies. The small size of the school means that we all know the students very well and staff work together effectively. This is a school on a humane scale where personal relationships matter.

We have a "continental day". This means an earlier start - at 8.10 am for staff and 8.25 am for students. Students have one year assembly per week. There are 5 one-hour lessons and 2 breaks of 20 and 30 minutes. The main part of the day ends at 2.30 pm. On Mondays there are meetings; on Wednesdays Tuesdays and Thursdays, extra-curricular activities and late buses; on Fridays many staff go home a little earlier!
