About our school

Welcome to Pendeen School


Our school is in the village of Pendeen which is located approximately seven miles west of  Penzance.  We are located on the main coast road, minutes from the beautiful Penwith coastline, close to Geevor and Botallack mines. In fact, you can see the sea from our playground! 


The school caters for children between the ages of 4 - 11. We currently have just under 100 pupils on roll, taught in four classes, and offer a rich & diverse curriculum, as well as a full programme of after-school activities. The Children's Ark, a separate pre-school, is located next door to the school providing high quality early years education for younger children. 


We are a proud founding member of the Truro and Penwith Academy Trust and enjoy working collaboratively with our partner schools as well as with other local schools within the Penwith clusters, as well as those further afield in Cornwall. 


We hope that you enjoy your visit to our website, and that you find the information you are looking for. Please feel free to contact the school direct with any queries you may have.

Our School Rules

At Pendeen School, we have three simple, memorable rules which we ask all children, staff and members of the school community to adhere to.


These are: 

  • Follow instructions with thought and care.

  • Show good manners at all times. 

  • Care for everyone and everything. 


These school rules are underpinned by the belief that:


  • We all have a right to feel safe. 

  • We all have a right to be treated with respect and dignity. 

  • We all have a right to learn.
