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.
