Principal’s Welcome

Welcome to Penrice Academy, a school to be proud of.

We are committed to providing the highest quality teaching and learning for all our students. As an Outstanding school we maintain the highest of standards in all aspects of school life.

School is a life experience. You spend 7 hours a day, 5 days a week – 190 days of the year – with us, so we want you to leave with life-long memories and stories. All students benefit from a broad and varied education, so we offer sport, art, catering, drama, trips abroad and at home, and much, much more.

Our extra-curricular life is like no other. Lessons are engaging, the support is amazing and the opportunities are endless. Our Year 7s immerse themselves in choir, creative reading and outdoor learning, as well as a huge range of sports.

Every Thursday, Penrice Plus sees over half of our students taking part in clubs and activities and there are opportunities throughout the year to perform, develop new skills and travel the world.

Please come and visit and, more importantly, speak to our students about their experiences of their school.
