St Petroc Premier School is giving more children from disadvantaged backgrounds the chance to learn at a school ranked among the best in the County. It’s not about elitism or separating sheep from goats. It’s about recognizing that all children are different and that academic qualifications are not the only route to success.
Not every child sees a traditional, academic education as a privilege. Many would far rather go to a school that offers high-quality technical and vocational education that meets their needs and interests. With schools under increasing pressure to meet targets and boost their performance in league tables, not nearly enough is being done to meet the needs of these students…
Children learn by doing. Our classrooms offer an abundance of opportunities for their imaginations to run wild. Whether it is dressing up like a fire fighter or building incredible Lego creations, school will be fun.
We prepare pupils for primary school and beyond. Too many [schools] aren’t emphasizing critical thinking, and they’re not helping kids see the connections between science and math.
“We look for qualities that don’t show up on the school report card”, We want children who have insatiable desires to learn, and who think critically.
