L – Learning

Each project is planned around a complex enquiry question, leading to a high-quality end outcome and exhibited to an authentic audience.

The projects are designed to cover all aspects of the National Curriculum whilst at the same time providing the children with engaging, real life experiences. This allows pupils to develop their confidence and gives them the ability to self-manage their learning as well as developing skills In preparation of a world outside of school.

Each project has a real world, real life outcome and is rigorously tuned before being delivered to pupils. Projects culminate in a final exhibition to a real-life audience.

On Tuesday 11th September (9.00am) and Tuesday 2nd October (9.00am) There will be Open Days where staff will be available to show interested parents/guardians and members of the community around the school.

The school works alongside the local community and utilises local experience as experts within the projects. If you are a local business or charity with a project that you would be interested in Pensans supporting they would be delighted to hear from you. Previous collaborators on projects include a local Care Home, supermarket and Plastic Free Penzance. You can contact Tiffany Pope (Head of Curriculum) on 01736 363627 or
