School Voicemail Messages

We are currently experiencing issues with our telephone voicemail message service, meaning we are unable to listen to any messages which have been left on the school telephone system. This is causing particular issues for our Attendance team, who are unable to access messages from parents/carers reporting student absences. Therefore, if you reach the answerphone message service when calling Attendance, please hang up and e-mail attendance@penryn-college.cornwall.sch.uk to inform the Attendance team of any absences. 

We apologise for any inconvenience caused.
