Bishop Bronescombe School Motto is: ‘Learning that lasts a lifetime.’
We have a 1.5 form entry, consisting of 11 classes, plus our Nursery- ‘BBeebies' - with a total of 360 children and are situated in St Austell on the south coast of Cornwall. Our recent SIAMS inspection identified us as an ‘outstanding’ Church of England School and St Luke’s Church is also located on-site.
Our ultimate aim is a brilliant education for every child in our care, ensuring we develop all aspects of their potential by providing them with a rich education, focusing upon academic and sporting achievement; fostering creativity and artistic flair; encouraging an inquisitive nature and meeting their needs, regardless of their starting point. We also passionately follow the Thrive approach in order that we may support and nurture children experiencing social and emotional difficulties.
Bishop Bronescombe is a Church of England School. The staff at BB operate to a high standard and they are open, warm and honest people who have a desire to enthuse young people about learning.
To encourage pupils to have wider learning experiences, we are committed to providing exciting trips and visits. Currently we offer residential opportunities (Y3-6) to Camp Kernow, Porthpean, Devon and London - incorporating a variety of sporting, historical, political and cultural activities.
We have just launched our own version of the Immersive Curriculum whereby we immerse children in learning which is child-led, focusses on interesting enquiry and produces real outcomes for real audiences. We also have an effective School Council, who have achieved the silver award for their work across the school community.
