About Brannel School

Brannel School was completely redesigned and rebuilt in 2011 as a ‘School of the Future’ at a cost of over £17m. Our facilities are second to none, and are underpinned by integrated technology befitting a 21st century working and learning environment. Brannel School is a welcoming and exciting place in which to teach and to learn.
Brannel School offers 800 places to pupils aged 11-16. Situated in the heart of rural Cornwall’s China Clay communities, we are committed to uniting all of our stakeholders in delivering a shared goal of Brannel School as the learning centre of our community.
We will continue to build on our strong record of tackling inequality and reducing achievement gaps in order to nurture confident, independent learners who are active participants in the community. We firmly believe that the young people of China Clay are as talented as you will find anywhere:
• Where they have ability, we will nurture it and ensure it is realised.
• Where they have ambition, we will encourage it and provide the opportunities for it to grow.
• Where social issues have led young people to have low expectations of themselves, we will raise their self-esteem, increase their self-reliance and extend their aspirations.
At the heart of our vision is to create a truly outstanding school delivering the very best educational opportunities, nurture academic excellence and enhance ambition in all its pupils. We aim to inspire the next generation of professionals and entrepreneurs.
