  • Welcome

    It has been another remarkable year of success for Truro and Penwith College.

    Our students have achieved record-breaking results across the whole range of our offer, in partnership with excellent teaching and support staff who deliver the highest standards of education. The College continues to expand its world- class facilities and to enhance access and opportunity for students across Cornwall.

    We are one of the very best colleges in the country and were delighted when Ofsted again designated us Outstanding in its most recent inspection of our work.

    Tertiary colleges such as this one have established a very high reputation for the quality of their specialist post-16 expertise and learning environments, for the wide range and flexibility of the courses they offer on both academic and vocational pathways, and for their examination results.

    Truro and Penwith College is a leading example of a Tertiary college and is recognised nationally as one of the very best providers of post-16 education and training. Results for A Level, vocational courses, work-based learning and the International Baccalaureate have been exceptional again this year. Our students not only achieve outstanding outcomes, but the best progression opportunities into Higher Education and employment which follow from those outcomes. It is their success that allows us to present ourselves with confidence as the best educational institution for you to pursue your ambitions.

    To deliver these high levels of student achievement, we focus constantly on providing outstanding teaching, exceptional personal support, and world-class facilities. Our impressive academies at the College provide a platform for students to pursue excellence in specific fields such as sports, medicine, music, art, and enterprise, alongside their chosen course. They also ensure that specialised guidance and support is available for applications to the most competitive degree courses and to the most selective universities.

    As you explore our prospectus, you will see the level of passion and commitment we bring to all aspects of College life. I hope you will decide to become a part of our College, and in doing so create your own outstanding experiences, achievements and futures.

    David Walrond Truro and Penwith College Principal
