Why Cornish?

All children are natural inquirers and powerful learners. We nurture their sense of inquiry and aim to inspire a quest for learning throughout life.

Gallery-Secondary-School-18Our curriculum is powerful with a focus on academic achievement and generating rich understandings and creativity. Through ‘inquiry’ learning we combine subject-specific knowledge with valuable skills that enable students to learn beyond the classroom.

We educate for a sustainable future, embedding sustainability in all of our teaching and cocurricular activities. We do this through our Rings of Sustainability, which underpin our curriculum and focus on natural, personal, socio-cultural and urban/ technological sustainability. Everything we do supports one of our rings, helping students to understand their learning in a local, regional and global context and how they can make a difference to a sustainable world.

Overarching everything is our motto ‘Make A Difference’. Students from ELC to Year 12 learn compassion and empathy, and they are challenged to make choices that will have a positive impact on the world. By developing the whole child, we create problem solvers and leaders who can truly make a difference within their community and globally.

With our passionate and skilled teachers, well-rounded and able students and a wider community that truly supports and cares for each other, Cornish College can be the difference for your child.
