About Us

Truro and Penwith Academy Trust supports primary and secondary schools in Cornwall. We believe all children and young people should have the best possible life chances and we do this with a relentless drive for the highest possible level of achievement involving academic, creative, sporting and cultural opportunities. We have a shared moral purpose and a shared vision in our schools while celebrating the unique and distinctive features of our school communities within their local context. We genuinely believe in partnership working with our schools, the pupils and their parents and the wider community as each serves to create the best possible outcomes for our children and young people.

We also believe that our teachers, leaders and support teams are deeply committed to providing a well-rounded, inspirational, challenging and character-building education for all students throughout their time with us. We are proud to empower them through support, training and career opportunities. With such an outstanding team we are able to ensure every student achieves all that they are capable of and more, regardless of background, culture, heritage or ability.
