Penrice Plus

Our Extra Curricular life at Penrice, Penrice Plus, saw an exciting first year, with over half of our student population taking part.

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 skills outside the classroom that they already have.

Sign up for Penrice Plus until Christmas is now complete, but if you wish to add or change a session please contact Mr Knipe on
