Welcome to Penponds

I am delighted to welcome you to the Penponds School website which I hope will provide insight into our vibrant, creative and happy school located on the edge of Camborne in the beautiful countryside of west Cornwall.  

Our mantra is for our school community to be, 'aiming high and achieving their best' in everything we do.  

We are committed to ensuring that our children thrive during their time at Penponds and that they are instilled with confidence, curiosity and creativity to be ready for whatever challenges come their way.  

At Penponds School the children come first, this is reflected in everything we do.  We believe in inspiring pupils to move their cutting edge of learning into their 'challenge zone' and become a 'boss of their own learning' through our staff as facilitators, teachers and negotiators to encourage and challenge the children to be life long learners.
