Hundreds of pupils were evacuated after four neighbouring schools received coordinated security threats.
St Ives School and Humphry Davy School in Penzance, and Truro High School for Girls and Penair School in Truro, made the decision to ask pupils and staff leave.
Police say the schools received the warning at around 8am but, by 9am, police said they found no threat or risk and buildings were able to reopen.

We acted on information given at 8:30am and after finding that there was no issue the pupils returned to their class rooms, I really must thank everyone for their co-operation.

Head Teacher Gary Hobbs says the transformation has brought the school together.
