Penbridge School

Love Learning for Life

Welcome to Penbridge School

Formally known as Penhale Infant School and Newbridge Junior School, we officially joined together earlier this year. Thanks to the merger, our two schools can provide your child with an all through primary education over two sites, Penbridge Infant and Penbridge Junior. Your child will enjoy the benefits of shared teaching expertise, resources and extracurricular activities.

Making Learning Irresistible 

At Penbridge School we want children to be successful learners and develop a lifelong love of learning. We teach the skills they need to be effective learners and the language they need to express how they can become successful across all areas of the curriculum.

We know that children are naturally inquisitive and we aim to develop this curiosity by providing a curriculum that engages and excites but also provides challenge at the correct level.

Our Values

Love Learning for Life

Our vision is that every child will ‘Love Learning for Life’.
This means that every day is an opportunity to learn something new that children will take forward into the next step of their learning journey.

Transforming Life Chances

We are part of the ‘Thinking School Academy Trust’ which means that we work on memory and retrieval skills so that children make links between different areas of learning. We follow an ‘all through’ model where the children go on to The Portsmouth Academy.

A Cognitive Approach to Education

As part of our curriculum we utilise the Thinking School approach. Thinking Hats, Maps and Keys are all used in daily teaching and we firmly believe this approach teachers our pupils skills they need to achieve their goals.
