Careers

Being at Penrice gives your son or daughter an advantage in life. They have opportunities that not all children will have to go places, meet people and be exposed to exciting new ideas.

We also keep a close eye on where our students are heading to, providing careers advice, briefings on the opportunities locally and nationally, arranging work experience, visits from employers, lessons taught by staff from Truro College or Cornwall College so that our Year 11 leavers know exactly what they want to do next. We give those students the GCSE grades they need to open doors of employers, apprenticeship providers or universities. We ensure every child leaves here with self-confidence, self- assurance and self-belief.

We were proud that last year 20% of our Year 11 Leavers entered into apprenticeships and nearly 60% have decided on a university level course. Some of those apprentices will go onto university level education; some of those doing A Levels will switch to an apprenticeship route rather than university.

Our Careers service helps make sure our students know what they want to do and how to do it.
