I am immensely proud to be Headteacher of Tywardreath school, a warm, caring and vibrant school for 4-11 year olds that sits in the heart of a supportive and active village community.
Tywardreath has its own unique identity and is a truly inspirational place to learn and work. Our dedicated and talented team are committed to making learning both exciting and challenging.
We all work hard to ensure the children receive the very best education and to prepare our children not only for their next phase of education, but to equip them with the skills they need to become good citizens who really can make a difference in the world.
We have a long tradition of sporting excellence and encourage participation and competitive sports through a range of clubs including swimming, cross-country, football, netball, athletics, rounders and Taiko drumming.
We are very fortunate to have a high-spec swimming pool on site which was built in partnership with our wonderful community. Our children swim every week throughout the year and we are also able to offer private swimming lessons after school.
We have extensive school grounds including a garden and forest-school area.
We know that children are far more likely to succeed when staff and parents work together to support children with their learning. We therefore aim to develop a close co-operation between home and school. We offer to meet formally and informally through the year and through each phase of the children’s schooling with events such as ‘meet the teacher’, open afternoons, drop-in sessions, parent consultations as well as a myriad of community events. These community events are organised and run by our fantastic PSA and they provide the more informal opportunities to get involved with school-life.
