Welcome to Penpol School
At Penpol School we believe that every child matters and have always advocated that children achieve great success when they are happy at school.
Creativity is at the heart of our curriculum and our aim is to give all of our children the confidence to become life-long learners. We promote a culture of high achievement for all and prepare each child for their future by providing them with the opportunity to grow academically, socially, morally, culturally, and spiritually.
We believe that education involves a close partnership between the home and school and view parents as being a fundamental and essential element in the success of their child’s learning.
Our motto is ‘Forward Together’ and this very much reflects the kind and caring ethos of our happy school.
I hope you enjoy looking through our website.
