A school was established in Madron by the generosity of local man George Daniel in 1710. The three hundredth anniversary celebrations have just been held.
Madron School today is a small school with around 40 pupils and three teachers! The view from the school field down to St Michael’s Mount is stupendous. The school recently acquired this field and is greatly increasing the range of sporting activities available to the children. It has also acquired new play equipment, a minibus and has improved the teacher parking and entrance to the school.
As the numbers are smaller the degree of pastoral care offered to children, quite apart from the Christian ethos, results in excellent progress being made by those with special educational needs.
The school was delighted to have had a very good OFSTED report last time round, and we hope this will only serve to boost numbers further. The school is also now catering for 2 year olds and has an excellent and also growing pre-school.
If you have a child and would like a prospectus or to visit the school, the headteacher is Mrs Hilary Tyreman c/o St Maddern’s School, Madron, Penzance, Cornwall.
There is also a fine pre-school facility attached
