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 4-18

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

Most travel by car, or are brought in by the school from the surrounding area

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

The facilities are very good. For a small school it caters for all the pupils' needs. It has good playing fields. strong music, excellent art, and a fantastic 6th Form Centre. The classrooms are on the whole spacious and the whole school has a wonderful family feel about it. The school is in an old ancestral house overlooking the sea on the coast of Cornwall. Pupils do really well in outside competitions and perform drama to a very high standard

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?

The pupils are given a lot of support, and because they start key stages a year early, are able to give the pupils the time and the guidance they need. pupils are assessed on their basic abilities, and the school will endeavour to give them the highest chance of reaching their potential.

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

The PTA is very strong and supportive. There are lots of activities for parents to be involved in, and they are regarded as a key player in the school's organisation

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

The school has gone through a rocky patch recently, due to the credit crunch, but they have appointed a new headmaster who has visited the school and has made a very positive impression. We feel that the school has a wonderful ethos and its size means it is able to provide as good an education as possible. Come to the school and see it for what it is-absolutely brilliant.
