Welcome to Sennen School

'Aiming high together to be outstanding in all we do'

‘The first school in the Land’

Welcome to our popular and successful village school overlooking picturesque Sennen Cove in the far west of Cornwall, and situated only a short distance from Land’s End.

At Sennen School we believe that all children are unique individuals with a right to a safe and happy learning environment, in which both safeguarding and children's wellbeing are a shared priority. An inclusive environment which offers acceptance and respect for everyone, ensures equal opportunities regardless of social background, culture, race, gender or ability and which embraces both British values and diversity.

Ofsted praised our ‘good’ school, and it’s achievements, in October 2013, stating that : “Sennen is a popular, effective school that lies at the heart of its community” …the “pupils’ love of school is seen in their swift mention of many friendships with other pupils and warm encouraging relationships with adults. Pupils say ‘this is a small and friendly school with nice teachers and happy people.’”

Our aim is to provide not only a creative and stimulating curriculum, but also a broad and challenging curriculum, to ensure that all our pupils receive the widest educational opportunities of the highest quality. To this end, our dedicated team of staff succeed in bringing learning ‘truly alive’ through their use of the stunning local landscape, and the rich cultural heritage, which surrounds us.
