Constantine Primary School

Trescobeas Road, Constantine (01326) 340554

Headteacher: Mrs Helen Bancroft

Constantine Primary School is set on the edge of the lovely village of Constantine and has a friendly, family atmosphere. It has approximately 135 pupils on roll whose ages range from 4-11 years. There are strong links with the pre-school group which is located on site in a new purpose-built eco-friendly building.

The original school building was constructed in 1966. But in 2005 the school was completely tranformed by the addition of new classrooms, library and computer suite. All the existing classrooms have been brought up to modern standards and the old building has been completely refurbished.

The school has its own hall, equipped with P.E. apparatus; a new adventure play area; sports field and garden. There is an excellent canteen, fully staffed and equipped to prepare healthy meals on the premises. Classroom accommodation provides ample room for pupils, with splendid views over the Lizard peninsula towards Goonhilly Downs.

Constantine School covers the full national curriculum and offers all that you would expect from a modern primary school. However we are also proud of our “extras”. Music is a great strength with singing, private instrument tuition, orchestra and participation in festivals. Our after school clubs are many and varied, changing throughout the year. The school has a strong PTA who organise social and fund raising events for the benefit of the children. The Governing Body take a lively interest in all aspects of school life.

From Constantine School pupils transfer to either Falmouth Community School, Helston School, Penryn College or Mullion School.

If you would like more information, or to visit the school, please contact the Headteacher or Secretary at the school.

Life is good at Mullion. The students, staff, governors and parents are proud of their school, which serves the community on the Lizard peninsula.

We have first class teachers and we are sent well motivated pupils with positive supportive parents.

“The school is one where, quite genuinely, every child matters.” So says a parent, whose views are quoted in the Ofsted Report that has just been published on Mullion School. A team of 4 Inspectors visited the school, over two days, last month and they have given the school a glowing report.

The report opens with the following statement. “This is an outstanding school. It meets the needs of individual students exceptionally well in most aspects of its work. Parents and carers are overwhelminglypositive about the work of the school.” A parent/carer wrote: “The school is exceptionally aware of each child as an individual and concerned to meet all their needs.”
