About the College
Penryn College is a lively thriving Academy with an excellent reputation which caters for 1149 11-16 pupils in a modern building. We pride ourselves on offering the very best for our students so that when they leave us, they are confident and capable young people who are prepared to give something back to society.
In 2008 we moved into our £24 million pound new school building, which has a great range of resources, including an information rich environment, state of the art sporting facilities including a 6 badminton court size sports hall, the latest generation astro turf pitch, our own climbing wall and now includes iPads for every student to support their independent learning.
Our College buildings and 10 acres of grounds are used extensively by the community for adult education courses, sporting activities, performances and fund raising activities. Our unique relationship with surrounding primary schools - known as the "Penryn Partnership" - helps primary children to settle in to the college whilst adjusting to their new environment.
