Mounts Bay Academy is located in Penzance, West Cornwall with 1065 students aged 11-16 years. Mounts Bay school converted to Academy status in 2011 and a year later was awarded an Outstanding grade in a full Ofsted Inspection. In November 2017 the Academy was inspected by Ofsted to review its safeguarding arrangements and the HMI visitors noted that the Academy had a fully inclusive culture and provided excellent support for vulnerable students. Since then we were awarded a Good grade in 2021 under the new Ofsted Framework introduced in 2019.

The Academy is a hub for the Challenge Partners’ network and part of a number of school improvement and leadership organisations such as High Performance Learning.

The Academy has also successfully made bids to improve our facilities over the last 5 years and there are now new changing rooms and Science laboratories, a new sports hall and an artificial pitch along with significant building and technological improvements in the past year.
