Penbridge School is the combination of two schools: Newbridge Junior and Penhale Infant.

We firmly believe in the partnership in different levels of education to ensure a seamless transition for pupils as the progress. As such, Newbridge and Penhale have always worked closely, planning curriculum together, holding join-events, our communications are often released in tandem, and now we are even closer!
