Parent's Review of Gems Bolitho in Penzance, UK

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

Gems Bolitho

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

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

Walk/public transport/own car

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

OK - nothing spectacular or modern but sufficient. Limited after school activites, and not much at lunchtime

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?

Nothing

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

Used to be brilliant - but now parents less welcome and more sceptical of the path the school is now taking under Gems

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

Think very carefully and look at excellent choice in Truro - many pupils have now left, the brilliant new head was also pushed out, so we feel the school will stumble on for a bit and then most likely close. No 6th form now to speak of, and the early years is still very much in the dark ages.
