Penryn College is an average-sized secondary school. The college moved into a new building in 2008. The college was Cornwall's 'Building Schools for the Future' pathfinder and raised an additional £1.4 million to provide community sports facilities. It converted to an academy in July 2011. The college draws its students from Penryn and the surrounding villages. The large majority of students are of White British heritage and most speak English as their first language. The proportion of students known to be eligible for free school meals is similar to that found nationally. The proportion of students supported by school action plus or who have a statement of special educational needs is above that found nationally. An area resource base providing for 15 students with moderate learning difficulties is integral to the college. Alternative curriculum choices for a few students are provided at local partner colleges. The college has held sports specialist status since 1998 and was designated a leading edge college in 2004 and an applied learning college in 2006. The college is in receipt of numerous accreditations through nationally recognised awards, including the Arts Mark Gold. The college meets the government’s current floor standards, which set the minimum expectations for pupils’ attainment and progress.
