The power of the Cornish College curriculum
The Cornish College concept-based curriculum is powerful and ensures students gain rich understandings, a love of learning and vital enterprise skills such as creative thinking, collaboration and communication.
All children and young people are natural inquirers and powerful learners. Our curriculum helps them to use their curiosity to generate deep understanding and knowledge. This ensures academic and personal growth in every student and they enjoy achieving personal bests.
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.
