PiXL Edge

Here you will find the first in a series of mini topics from PiXL Edge which will help your son or daughter to settle in and progress at Penrice Academy.

The 5 attributes developed by the programme were chosen following consultation with employers:

  • Leadership
  • Organisation
  • Resilience
  • Initiative
  • Communication

Each term students will be given a booklet which will be broken down into categories such as “Organisation”.

We hope that by using these booklets and the resources supplied we can jointly support our students, to enable them to achieve their true potential both inside and outside of the classroom.
