Welcome to Sir James Smith's School

There has been a Sir James Smith’s school in Camelford for nearly 350 years with the current school site opening as Cornwall’s first purpose built comprehensive school over 60 years ago.  Today, Sir James Smith’s is a small, thriving school proud of the fact that all are welcome and with a simple motto that runs through everything we do:

 Aspiration, Ambition, Achievement

As a school we believe in keeping things simple and in that spirit have two simple aims; we want all pupils to be happy and we want them to be able to make interesting choices when they move on to their post-16 studies, whatever they may be.  Aims and values you can discover more about here.
