Parent's Review of The Bolitho School in Penzance, UK

What is the name of your child's school? (Please report on one school per survey.)

The Bolitho School

In what town or city is this school located?

Penzance

How would you describe this school? (i.e. American, British, International, Local, etc.)

British

What grade levels are represented at this school?

Aged 3-18 years

How do most children get to school everyday? (bus, train, walk, etc.)

Most get driven in by car or bus. A number however do walk if they live there

How would you describe the facilities at this school? What extra-curricular activities are available?

The school has everything that you need. Sports fileds, labs, nice classrooms etc. They use the leisure centre near the school for swimming. Lots of different clubs available. You can learn French in other subjects so that a large number of pupils are bi-lingual at 13!!

What has this school done to help your child transition from the curriculum in your home country into the curriculum in your new country? Are there programs to prepare your child for repatriation?

Really top quality staff. The school is broken up into small sections with a head of section in each - so no pupil really is able to fall through the net. A child is given the best possible teacher to child ratio - and with IB in the 6th form there is no doubt that a pupil gets better grades here than if they went to another school.

How would you describe the social activities available for parents through this school? Are there parent-teacher organizations?

Very strong pto who help in so many different aspects of the school. Real partnership.

What advice would you give to someone considering enrolling their child in this school?

The staff are friendly, and willing - the pupils are couteous - all the hallmarks of a small school which means that everyone matters. Top notch.
