Making Learning Irresistible

At Penbridge, we seek to instill a thirst for learning through an engaging and creative curriculum which will inspire children to become confident and curious learners. We pride ourselves on providing a safe, stimulating, challenging and caring environment where children can develop intellectually, physically, emotionally and socially to be prepared for their future lives.

This prospectus aims to provide you with an introduction to our school, our ethos and the creative curriculum which we are very proud of. Visits to the school are always warmly welcomed. Please contact the school office to make an appointment and visit our school.
