I am absolutely delighted to welcome you to Nexus, Camborne Science and International Academy’s Centre of Excellence for the education of the most able.

Nexus is home to CSIA’s Gifted Programmes. These Programmes offer students who are especially able a chance to thrive and shine in their chosen field of study through a bespoke curriculum designed to engage and challenge gifted learners. Alongside this specially designed curriculum, students experience a rich co-curricular programme that complements the curriculum and deepens and develops the scholarship of these students.

Our aim is to develop young learners who are able to pick and choose from the best courses at the very best Universities worldwide; young people who have a wealth of research experience from working with some of the best academics in their field of interest. These young people will be amongst those who devise the solutions for the most pressing problems faced by mankind, and Nexus will equip them for this bright future.

Nexus is an opportunity for students to shine, regardless of their background. We are particularly keen to encourage girls into the Gifted STEM Programme; as part of this drive we are working with organisations such as WISE (Women into Science, Technology and Engineering). Nexus is a hub for excellence in teaching the Most Able and we work closely with NACE (National Association for Able Children in Education). Nexus has been declared to be “wonderful” by the Rt. Hon. Nick Gibb MP, Minister of State for School Standards at the Department for Education, who recently visited.

Nexus is a very special place. From the purposeful productive atmosphere with an extended day every day, to the bright modern space designed for learning, Nexus is a place where the most able young people have the environment and support to develop into the learners and leaders of the future.

Please come and see Nexus and the Gifted Programmes for yourself; come and meet our exceptional students and staff who radiate enthusiasm and a love for learning.
