Ethos and Values
It is our mission for our students to aspire to achieve beyond the expectations that others place on them. Brannel School is a growth mindset school. In practice this means that: our staff and our students understand that success is based on learning, persistence and hard work; we provide high levels of challenge for every student; we foster a safe and secure environment in which our students are encouraged to make mistakes - in order to learn from them; and we reward effort and not just attainment. Our goal is for each and every one of our students to be the best they can be. >Read More<
Brannel School was completely redesigned and rebuilt in 2011 as a 'School of the Future' at a cost of over £17 million. School buildings should inspire learning. They should nurture every student and member of staff. They should be a source of pride and a practical resource for the community. As a ‘School of the Future’, Brannel is a welcoming and exciting place in which to teach and to learn. Our state-of-the-art facilities reflect our educational vision of high expectations, high-quality teaching and learning, specialism and excellence, local collaboration and community involvement.
Brannel School is part of the Newquay Education Trust
Brannel School converted to an academy as part of the Newquay Education Trust (NET) in November 2017. We believe that we will achieve more through collective strength and shared responsibility. NET is a Multi Academy Trust, created in September 2014, based on the fundamental principle of real partnership and collaboration to secure educational opportunity and excellence for all children, regardless of their starting points in life. At the heart of our vision is the belief that education is a seamless and continuous journey and our core purpose is to create ever improving provision across our Trust which will provide the best opportunities for young people across Mid Cornwall.

We take this commitment very seriously and follow expected duties and guidelines to recognise, report and follow up any evidence of abuse.
