Welcome to Penny Bridge CE Academy From our Headteacher
I am very happy to introduce myself as the Headteacher of Penny Bridge CE Academy. We are a happy, well motivated and hard working staff who provide a fun, stimulating and nurturing environment in which every child can succeed and fulfil their potential.
I hope our website gives you an insight into our school but we believe the best way to find out all about us is to visit and see all the things we have to offer.

- Year 1 Curriculum Week
This week we have been looking at what life was like 100 years ago to commemorate the centenary of the First World War. We have been seeing what school was like, what the poppy stands for, what the soldiers had to eat and what people wore 100 years ago.
- Curriculum Week
This week we are studying all about World War One. We hope the children will come back with a good understanding of why we wear a poppy. There is sewing, baking, clay work, poetry and letter writing all planned so be sure to ask what they have been up to!
