About Pennthorpe

The Pennthorpe Vision

Pennthorpe is a remarkable school with an extraordinary amount to offer.

We are highly ambitious for our school, and for our pupils so to stand still and relish what we currently have is, in effect, to go backwards.

Our Pennthorpe vision grasps the opportunity to look forward and plan through four core objectives that reflect and emphasise our educational offering. It is based upon our understanding of the schools’ strengths and areas for development.

To ensure delivery of each of the four core objectives, the school produces an internal operational document, the Annual Implementation Plan which details how the core objectives will be delivered and enhanced on an annual basis.

Our four core aims are:

  • To inspire every pupil with the ambition to discover and achieve academic excellence
  • To stimulate and nurture every pupil on a uniquely personal journey of self-development
  • To cultivate and enrich an engaged, happy and collaborative community: pupils, parents and the local and global community
  • To enable, maintain and develop business stability and growth

Pennthorpe has inspired lightbulb moments in young people since 1930. The rich and eclectic mix of authentic pastoral care teamed with high academic standards driven by passionate, caring staff and an invigorating curriculum, make Pennthorpe the intangible school it is.
