U16 Team a credit to School

The U16 County  Netball Tournament was held at Penryn College on Saturday. The team of Scarlet Clemens, Amy Walker, Izzy Hopkins, Liberty Hartley, Harly Beale, Daisy Ingall, Chelsi Mitchell, Sasha Bailey and Lola Cockwell won all 5 games in their group and went on to win their quarter final against Wadebridge. They just missed out on a place in the Regionals losing to Penair School 6-7 in the last 5 seconds of the game! Thank you girls. You played together in great spirit were a credit representing the School.


Great performance from Penryn College U14s who reached regional Hockey Finals.  The team played Truro School in semi final, winning 1 – 0.  They finished 2nd in their group, losing only to Truro High School 1- 0 and now have qualified for regionals!



4th November: a really successful week for the teams. Y11s beat H.Davy 4-0 in the County Cup,  Y9s beat Launceston 3-0 in Round 3 of the National Cup. Well done to Jonah Bough who score two goals on his debut!

Penryn’s best ever collective set of results in the National Cup finally suffered a hiccup last week (w/b 14 Nov) with both the Y8s and Y10s losing to very good sides from Devonport High School For Boys in Round 4. However, there was better news for the Y9s who beat Plymstock and now face Paignton in Round 5, the last 64 of the competition! Penryn’s goal came from Liam Morris, and an outstanding performance by the defence, and in particular Billy Daly, ensured Plymstock couldn’t peg the goal back.


Penryn College Girls’ Football team made it through to the regionals last week!








Teams in Years 7,8,10 all beat Falmouth in fixtures last week (17th November)!
