Penryn College

We’re a lively thriving college, and we pride ourselves on offering the very best for our students. Penryn College caters for boys and girls aged between 11 and 16 years who mainly live in Penryn Town and the surrounding villages of Constantine, Flushing, Mabe, Mawnan Smith, Mylor, Perranwell and Ponsanooth. Students also join us from outlying villages and Falmouth. The PAN for each year group is 210, but the occupational capacity is slightly different by year groups. Currently we are oversubscribed in all year groups.
Penryn College opened originally in Falmouth in 1957 and was moved to its present site in 1961. Since that time there has been a programme of continuous improvement and updating of buildings and classrooms. Our biggest development though was the opening in 2008 of our £24 million pound new College building. We have a great range of resources that help us meet the needs of students and the community. For example, through a partnership with the university , we were able to build a 6 badminton court size sports hall and have the latest generation astro turf pitch.
