Welcome to Newlyn School!

I would like to warmly welcome you to Newlyn School. At Newlyn, the children are at the very heart of all we do and we work to ensure that they are happy, confident and have opportunities that will prepare them for the future. Our staff are caring, dedicated and passionate about getting the very best from every child.

Through our engaging curriculum, we ensure that children can foster a passion for learning and curiosity that will help to develop high aspirations and a lifetime of memories. We believe in ensuring that children receive a well-rounded curriculum where individual talents can be spotted and nurtured to ensure that all children experience success and reach their full potential. We are particularly passionate about art, music and sport. We have built a strong link with Newlyn Art Gallery and are lucky enough to have pieces of art from the Arts Council Collection displayed in our school. Many children have taken the opportunity to learn an instrument and take part in a wide range of sporting activities.

We strongly believe in outdoor learning and our children benefit enormously by being so close to beaches and woodland. We also believe that children need to be given the opportunity to travel further afield and opportunities are provided for the children to travel to places such as Bristol and London.  

We believe in building strong relationships with parents, the local community and the other schools in the Truro and Penwith Academy Trust. We firmly believe that education is a partnership between home and school and regard you as an active partner in your child's education and value your interest and support.

Please do not hesitate to contact us if you have any questions or, better still, come and pay us a visit. We would be delighted to show you around.
