Open Evening


Welcome to Penair School, we hope if you are reading this you are considering joining our wonderful school.

I would like to officially welcome parents and young people to Penair. I hope through watching this film with some of our year 7’s and 11’s along with our welcome video on our home page, you gain a flavour of what Penair is all about and are able to make an informed choice about whether it is the right school for you.  We are lucky in Cornwall and certainly in the local area to have so many good schools to choose from.

I would like to make clear that as Headteacher I am absolutely determined to make sure that Penair delivers the very best for all the children that attend. Parents who choose Penair have entrusted us with one of the most important and rewarding jobs in the world – that of the welfare and progress of their child. We take this responsibility very seriously.

Having been at Penair since 2015 I have been struck by the young people who make it tick, their excellent behaviour, and pride in their school. I believe a school is much more than just its buildings, it is about the people and what goes on inside them. Relationships are key to success between students, staff, and parents. I am also excited for the future and know our best is yet to come. I am incredibly proud of the school that stands here today. But this is not the school you will end up with if you choose Penair, it will be a better school still by the time you join, and by the time you leave.

Please enjoy the film and do get in contact with us if we can be of any further help or assistance.
