It’s not just the town centre businesses that are enjoying success, Camborne Science and International Academy is celebrating three years at the top of the county’s state school league tables and Camborne RFC has been promoted to the National League.
It’s 20 years since CRFC has played in the National League but after over a decade of determined effort the club finished the 2015/16 season as South West 1 Champions, Tribute Cornwall Cup winners and winner of the Tribute Duchy League. These outstanding results were rewarded with promotion.
Club Chairman, Alan Truscott, attributed CRFC’s success to the club’s united approach with everyone doing their part – from the minis to the veteran players, the volunteers to the executive committee and the caterers to the sponsors.
Alan said: “Next year will be a massive challenge. Are we ready? Yes we are, but we will need everyone in Camborne once again to support us to ensure that we are able to compete and sustain rugby in Camborne at National League level.”
Camborne Science and International Academy has also been rewarded for its achievements in consistently raising the bar, setting education standards for the whole county and placing the school on the international stage alongside some of the highest performing schools in the world. Last week the school’s Principal, Ian Kenworthy was named Head Teacher of the Year at Cornwall’s Teacher Awards.
Ian said: “We are very proud to be at the core of our community, delivering a world-class education here in Camborne and allowing our students to thrive and flourish. From the creation of our acclaimed international programme to our instrumental involvement in the International Student Science Network, young people are given world-class opportunities right here in Camborne.”
