Camborne Pool Redruth Learning Cluster
Our school benefits from collaborating with many schools around the Camborne area, linking together wherever possible to maximize learning potential for all.

Camborne School and International Academy
We have close links with Camborne School and International Academy, which is where most of our pupils continue their education when they leave us. As the time approaches for this, pupils have the opportunity to meet staff and to spend time at Camborne School. Pupils from Camborne also come here for various projects such as work experience.
 
Football Association Skills Programme
FA Skills is a unique football coaching programme that gives 5-11s of all abilities the opportunity to get active, learn new football skills and enjoy the game.  We’ve been providing high quality football coaching courses for children since 2007 and have to date provided over 8 million child places on the programme, aiming to provide 1.2 million coaching opportunities per year.

FA Skills is a nationwide initiative run by The Football Association and funded by Sport England.  We provide after-school football coaching, holiday football coaching, support for charter standard football clubs and we also work within primary schools providing specialist football coaching. Our aim is to develop better and more technically gifted football players but also to give every child the opportunity to be the best that they can be.

FA Skills is based on a unique FA coaching model that helps boys and girls of all abilities to grow, develop their skills and to reach their potential.  The FA four corner model encompasses four key attributes that are vital for any developing young footballer: Physical, Technical, Psychological and Social elements, helping children to develop more than just their football skills – we’ll help them to gain confidence, build self-esteem, learn to work as  team and improve their decision making.

Your child can take part in The FA Skills programme through their primary school or by signing up to take part in our regular after school Skills Centres and holiday football coaching sessions.


Sporting fixtures are also arranged with other local schools.

The school actively participates in local groups, events and competitions such as Trevithick Day, Youth Speaks, Healthy School initiatives, and Camborne Youth Band.
