Sir James Smith's School

Year 5 & Year 6 Open Evening

Thursday 27th September at 4.45pm

Sir Jim’s is greatly valued by its community. It may be a small school but it is aspirational, has great ambitions and high expectations of its students and staff. Staff and parents are committed to working together to make sure each young person’s achievements are the best they can be.

Sir Jim’s is a Good school with many outstanding features. Our pastoral care system is second to none – students feel safe and are happy. In class and around school they are helped to develop and grow as people through extra-curricular activities and leadership opportunities. As a school we are committed to arts, drama, PE and music and believe these are essential to a broad and balanced  education.

Behaviour is excellent which means lessons are calm and purposeful. All students are supported to reach their academic potential. Our classrooms are places where high quality learning can take place and this is shown by our high Progress 8 score and excellent EBacc outcomes.  The school is regularly the top performing school in North Cornwall, one of the top 5 in Cornwall and in the top 11% nationally last year.  Parents/Carers tell us they love the atmosphere and often comment it is a welcoming and vibrant place; they also value the fact that it is a small school with an inclusive ethos. One parent said “Parents/carers in the know have known for several years that this school is a little bit of magic.”

Families and prospective students are warmly invited to visit us on Thursday 27 September.   The evening will commence at 4.45pm with an address in the main hall by Mr Carrington, Interim Headteacher and Ms Hocking, Teacher in charge of Primary Transition.
