Wall of Fame

In 2014, the Wall of Fame was introduced by one of our Student Council members to celebrate contributions and achievements from students, teachers and members of the community who have shown great effort, skill, or courage.

The Council organise regular nominations and voting to update the Wall of Fame each year. Anyone can nominate, and anyone can be nominated: pupils, staff, teams at Penryn College, members of the local community, and even people in the public eye can receive an honorary award.

2019’s Wall of Fame display features nine nominees, all listed below.
