A warm welcome to Pencalenick School
Preparing our pupils for a full, interesting and productive life at Pencalenick and beyond
As Head Teacher, I am immensely proud of the strong sense of community and support in promoting pupils’ achievement, resilience, safety, wellbeing and aspirations as they journey through life to adulthood.
We are a school for pupils who have an Education, Health and Care plan, which identifies a need for specialist provision. Within this context, Pencalenick offers a curriculum that is wide ranging and enriching for pupils who are ready to learn whilst supporting them in their academic outcomes, developing social skills, and to become independent and self-reliant.
We have 125 pupils of secondary age on site at Pencalenick School and are responsible for a further 4 ARBs across Cornwall. An ARB or Area Resource Base is a specialist facility attached to a mainstream school, catering for children with an Education, Health and Care plan who have complex or multiple learning needs or disabilities. Some children are primarily educated within the ARB, whilst others spend a larger percentage of their time accessing inclusive, supported provision within the mainstream school. Our ARBs are located at Falmouth (ages 4-11), Mount Charles in St Austell (ages 4-11), Brannel (ages 11-16) and Budehaven (ages 11-16). Each ARB has its own website where you can find out more about their provision.
