“Penpol pupils are curious, creative and courageous learners. Our school community believes in authenticity as the foundations of deep-rooted learning.
Through our rich and relevant curriculum, we nurture community-minded, forward-facing international citizens of the future.”

Governors at Penpol School

The governors of the school are required to focus upon three strategic areas and hold our headteacher to account.

  • The ethos and strategic direction of the school.
  • The educational performance of the school and its pupils.
  • The financial performance of the school.

Our governing body has representatives from the staff, parents, the local authority and various sectors of the wider community, bringing a wide range of skills and experience

We are all very proud to play our part in supporting the school and our students. We want each child to feel safe and to enjoy their time at Penpol. It is our firm commitment that every child receives the provision they deserve in order to achieve the best possible outcomes on both their academic and personal journeys.

Nikki Powell, Chair of Governors
