Falmouth School is a friendly, inclusive and highly successful school of 980 students, including a growing Sixth Form. Our ethos is that students achieve their best when they enjoy their learning. We believe every student has a talent, and it is our duty to guide and support each individual on their journey towards greatness. We are proud to be an ambitious 11-18 school with an excellent sixth form in a beautiful setting that serves the historic and vibrant town of Falmouth.

Falmouth has been shaped and influenced by its strong connection to the sea. Combining a fascinating maritime heritage and modern creativity, Falmouth is one of the South West’s leading cultural and festival destinations. It is framed by Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONBs) along the Helford and Fal Rivers and the Roseland Peninsula, located on the outstanding South West Coast Path, a magnet for walkers, picnickers and families alike.

Our school strive for passion for learning, thirst for knowledge and courage to embrace all challenges in learning with resolute determination. We expect everyone to be able to enjoy a learning environment that is disruption free and where exciting learning happens every minute of the day and we all pursue these highest standards: adults and students. We expect everyone to achieve their best every day and our sense of belonging is mighty as we are a ‘Falmouth Family’.

Falmouth School and Sixth Form is part of The Roseland Multi-Academy Trust, consisting of three secondary schools, two primary schools and a Teaching School Hub. The Trust’s mission is "to provide an outstanding education for our communities, where everyone succeeds" and we put our staff at the heart of everything we do to create a team spirit in our highly successful schools.
