Welcome to Penpol School
At Penpol, we know that every child is different. We celebrate this in our engaging creative curriculum, our varied extended provision and in rigorous challenge at each stage of every lesson. We strive to embed our learning in rich and vibrant contexts, giving real purpose to children’s lessons and making meaningful connections between subject areas. Outdoor and active learning is highly valued and we are committed to supporting our children to be outward facing: locally, nationally and internationally.
We understand that happy children learn more productively and our pupils know that they are believed in and respected by each member of our wonderful staff team. Penpol is a harmonious place where pupils explore how best to work alongside others, developing skills and dispositions which allow them to become committed lifelong learners.
Families form a vital part of any school community and we are particularly fortunate to work alongside incredibly supportive parents and carers. As a parent, you are your child’s first teacher and, in drawing upon the knowledge and expertise you have to offer, we are far better prepared to provide the personalised learning experience that your child deserves.
The world we are preparing our pupils for never stands still; exponential technological advances leave the future impossible to predict. For this reason, we embrace the need to continually evolve as a school. An ambitious cycle of research, evaluation, planning and development drives our practice forward and allows us to offer a truly 21st century learning experience.
Whether you are a prospective parent or carer, an organisation seeking to make use of our fantastic facilities or any other interested party, we warmly invite you to get in touch.
