I am delighted to welcome you to Carbeile Junior School which has

been providing a broad and varied education to the 7 - 11 year olds

of Torpoint for over 50 years. We see all of our pupils as individuals and

our aim is for them all to achieve their full potential academically, while 

also nurturing their social, moral, spiritual and cultural development.


Carbeile is a large junior school with over 300 currently on roll. We

ensure close links with Torpoint Nursery and Infant School through

transition from KS1 to KS2 and with Torpoint Community College when

our Year sixes move to KS3.

Being appointed as Headteacher of Carbeile Junior School fulfilled a career ambition and I am very excited

about taking the school and the staff, the pupils and the parents on a learning journey. My first aim is to

change the 'Requires Improvement' grading from Ofsted to a 'Good' as quickly as possible and, although this

will be a challenge for everyone, I am extremely confident that all of the Carbeile staff and pupils are ready for

that challenge.


I am passionate about creating a personalised learning environment that is fun but purposeful; one that

celebrates achievement and effort, progress and hard work. We know that the pupils at Carbeile are very well

behaved and polite. We are frequently told this by visitors and members of the Torpoint community. Now,

through interesting and inspirational learning opportunities, all staff are aiming to further improve

the pupils' attitudes to learning.


I am positive that with all stakeholders working together; staff, governors,children, parents and the wider

community, Carbeile can be a great school. Carbeile has an open door policy at all times and we value all

links with parents, as working in partnership will help your child achieve their best.
