If you would like to find out more about admitting your child to Penponds School or would like to take a guided tour and meet our teaching team, then please telephone on 01209 713929 or call in to the school office to make an appointment.


For admissions for the 2022-2023 reception class please follow the Cornwall Local Authority admissions guidance which can be accessed via the link below.


For all other year groups, admissions must be done by completing an ‘in-year’ application form which must be sent to: Admissions and Transport (Policy), Camel Building, County Hall, Treyew Road, Truro, TR1 3AY. The Cornwall admissions authority will then contact you to let you know if your application has been successful. If your application is unsuccessful you will have the option to go on a waiting list or to go to appeal. If you wish to appeal, please contact the school in the first instance.


The School Admissions Code 2021 has been updated, subject to Parliamentary approval, from September 2021. We have changed our admission arrangements to comply with the requirements. The updated policies can be found below.
