THE STUDENT EXPERIENCE
College should be one of the best times of your life and Falmouth Marine School offers a fantastic student experience.
Our enrichment and inspirational activity programmes will give you the opportunity to explore different activities that are not on your curriculum. This could be anything from trying out a new sport to going on a field trip.
What's Falmouth got to offer?
Set amongst some of the most beautiful coastline and countryside in Britain, Falmouth's southerly position provides a pleasant climate with mild winters, allowing access to watersports and other outdoor activities all year round.
College isn't all about work, so take a break and discover Falmouth's beaches including Castle beach which is great at low tide for rock pooling, Gyllyngvase for sunbathing, swimming and watersports and Swanpool and Maenporth for some quiet time. There are also swimming pools, watersports clubs, gyms and bowling.
Shop and eat
Falmouth town centre is a five minute walk from the Marine School and offers high street names as well as surf shops and boutiques. And for when you need a break there are plenty of waterside cafés and a huge range of restaurants offering local as well as Chinese, Indian, Italian and Japanese cuisine.
Bars, pubs and clubs
The town centre lies on the waterfront with a range of theme bars, character pubs and lively clubs offering live entertainment and music to suit all tastes.
National Maritime Museum Cornwall
With breathtaking views from the 29m tower, one of only three natural underwater viewing locations in the world, hands-on interactives, talks, special exhibitions and the opportunity to get out onto the water and discover the marine life around our coastline, National Maritime Museum Cornwall is a new generation of Museum with something for everyone.
