Penrice Plus

Penrice Plus sees half of our student population taking part in extracurricular activities every week.

Penrice Plus runs after school on Thursdays from 3.15 – 4.15pm (unless otherwise specified) and offers every student at Penrice Academy the
opportunity to take part in activities, learn new skills and build on the skills they already have outside the classroom.
