'To Live, To Love, To Learn'


Our Vision 


At Pensilva School, we take a themed approach to a broad and balanced curriculum.  We believe the children have an entitlement to learn about their locality and environment.  Our topic-based approach, with its emphasis on outdoor learning, encompasses our locality in the middle of beautiful Bodmin Moor with its rich environment and diverse Cornish history.


Headteacher's Welcome

 Pensilva Primary School is situated in the heart of the village of Pensilva. The original building dates back to 1913 and has always been involved in community activities.

Our school enjoys the best traditions of village schooling with creative teaching, an appreciation of the local environment and a good understanding of modern technology, which plays a major part in today’s world. The friendly atmosphere of our school provides the basis of a sound academic, caring, learning environment. At Pensilva Primary School we aim to create a stimulating atmosphere to engage children in learning and to enable them to develop their full potential in an environment that takes account of individual abilities, interests and personalities.

Our children enjoy outdoor learning and our active curriculum includes Forest School activities. We have two large fields and a wonderful wild-life area.

The school offers before school care from 0730am and we are fortunate to have the outstanding Pensilva Pre-School on site.

Thank you for visiting Pensilva Primary School’s website. I hope that you will find it useful. You and your child are very important to us; please do contact the school if you ever have any questions or concerns, are seeking further information or wish to arrange a visit to our school.
