Cornwall School of Mathematics and Science officially launched last night with an event attended by current and prospective students, academics, industry partners, local dignitaries and former students of Camborne Girls’ Grammar School, whose historic school building has been fully renovated and restored to its former glory, now the home of CSMS.

Dr Jo Foster, announcing the programme, emphasised the important role of STEM education today in meeting the growing demand for high-tech employees. Last year 2.4 million STEM job roles went unfilled, a number which is only forecast to increase.

At CSMS we passionately believe in giving students the opportunity to study their Science and Maths A Levels among other very able and committed students. Our programme will prepare them to take a leading role in the future of STEM in this country.

Students with the drive and ambition to apply for Oxbridge places are able to join our Oxbridge stream, where intensive entrance exam preparation sits alongside interview practice and an expanded curriculum to create an unrivalled offer.

We believe that the students who entrust their education to us are the future. We cannot wait to see how they shape it during their time with us.
