How are Penzance schools performing?

We connect you to the best teachers who work across several of the best primary and secondary schools in Penzance (some detailed below). This means we can reliably provide you with a local and experienced tutor that fits your needs.

Penzance primary school performance:

The Penzance area has 15 primary schools (one of the top being Ludgvan School with 27% of pupils achieving at a higher standard).

From their latest Oftsed report:
“Leaders have an exciting vision for the curriculum that is beginning to engage pupils. Leaders have mapped out what pupils should learn in each year. For example, when exploring ‘plastic pollution’, pupils consider scientific and ethical issues, as well as, mathematically, how long a piece of plastic takes to decompose. Pupils express their feelings about this through art and plan practical ways that they can reduce their plastic usage.”

The Penzance local authority has an average of 61% of students meeting the expected standards in reading, writing, and maths at primary school age (vs England's average of 65%). And has an average of 9% achieving higher standard (vs England's average of 11%).
