Able Students

What is an able student?

  • Students who are self-confident, motivated and engaged learners.
  • Students with strong skills in speaking, listening, critical thinking and independent study, with a good command of academic English.
  • Students who are engaged in learning that goes above and beyond the curriculum.
  • Students who understand what top grades look like.

At Penryn College, we have a variety of opportunities to help support able students in English, Maths, Science, Humanities, Creative Arts and MFL. Please click the subject link for further details.

As a parent/carer there are many ways you can support your able child, from puzzles and crosswords to announcing a word of the week at home. Please see the the below downloads for ideas.
