I am incredibly proud to be Principal of Gulval School, a warm, caring and vibrant school for 4 – 11 year olds that sits at the heart of the local Cornish community. We are a stone’s throw from the beautiful beaches of Penzance and St Michael’s Mount and are surrounded by fields and farm land, Gulval is unique, a happy a truly inspirational place to learn.
Our dedicated and experienced team are committed to making learning exciting and challenging. We all work hard to ensure the children in our care receive the very best education and that they remember their years spent at Gulval School with great affection. Our pupils consistently achieve results that are above national expectations in every measure, they prove that hard work does indeed pay off! Outcomes for pupils in 2017 placed Gulval School comfortably in the top 15% of all schools nationally.
We have a long tradition of sporting excellence and encourage participation and competitive sport through a wide range of clubs including football, rugby, rounders, swimming, cross country, athletics and High 5s. We are passionate about outdoor and adventurous learning and have developed our grounds to include a traversing wall, Poly Tunnel outdoor classroom, tyre park and animal enclosure; all to support inspirational learning and teaching. Everyone loves having Frodo and Bilbo Baggins in school who ensure an ever greater breadth of curriculum offer… Frodo and Bilbo are our resident pygmy goats! Our chickens and rabbits are equally popular with pupils and the wider community.
We welcome parents into school and value the partnerships that exist between home and school. Indeed, we could not have achieved and maintained our rapid progress without the support of our community. We offer opportunities to meet through a whole range of events including parental consultations, Big Dig days, concerts, sports and fundraising events such as our expedition week. I am immensely proud that Gulval School really does sit at the heart of the community it serves.
