Previously a community school administered by Cornwall Council, Falmouth School converted to academy status on 1 August 2011.[3] However the school continues to coordinate with Cornwall Council for admissions. The school also has plans to sell its playing fields to buy the former Budock Hospital site and turn it into a sports centre for use by the school and local community.[4]

Falmouth School offers GCSEs and BTECs as programmes of study for pupils, while students in the sixth form have the option to study from a range of A-levels, OCR Nationals, NVQs and further BTECs.[5]
