Why Penryn?

Penryn epitomises diversity with people from a wide range of cultures, religion and languages. Being in an environment where diversity is not only tolerated, but also encouraged, helps one to understand people from different walks of life and makes you excited to be a South African. It gives you the tools to face the world and the confidence to solve her problems. All children should have the opportunity to share this privilege!

School, like life, is a journey. Throughout my time at Penryn I have been on a journey and path that God has laid out for me. Penryn has not only successfully prepared me for tertiary education, but has indeed helped me develop my full potential in all aspects of my life through a holistic education. I am well on my way to becoming a well-rounded individual with a purpose, thanks to Penryn
