Our School

Trenance Learning Academy is a mixed gender school providing Foundation Stage and Key Stage One education for four to seven year olds in Newquay and the surrounding area. Our school enables education for 360 pupils organised into four form entry year groups. At Trenance we believe that every child should have access to the best start in education and not be disadvantaged by any factor in their life.

We know that consistently great teaching, immersive experiences and a safe happy environment is the key to starting their life’s adventure. We have been judged as Ofsted Outstanding since April 2010 and since then have continued to secure outcomes above the National figures in reading, writing and maths in both Early Years and Key Stage 1.

In 2018 we were designated by the Minister for School Standards as an English Hub, one of only 34 in the country and the only one in Cornwall. As an English Hub we support over 150 schools in how to teach reading.  We are also a designated Teaching School Hub, one of only 87 in the country and one of only 2 in Cornwall.  Our happy school is led by Headteacher, Matt Williams. We are fortunate to have six Designated Specialist Leaders of Education (SLE) and an outstanding team of teachers and support staff who help ensure that teaching, learning, behaviour and safety are the best they can be for our children, families and staff. As the largest provider of infant education in Cornwall, we recognise the importance of early childhood education and make it our mission to ensure that every child leaves us able to read, write, be a good friend, and have a wide knowledge of our world and a deep love of learning.
