Motto... 'Living, Learning, Laughing Together
Trekenner County Primary is a small rural school about 5 miles from Launceston in Cornwall. There are three classes ranging from 19 to 23 pupils. The school motto is 'Living, Learning, Laughing Together'
The school's strengths are a combination of a traditional strong bond between school and community and 21st century innovation which makes our school a place where children want to learn.
Trekenner School works closely with two other Primary Schools - South Petherwin and Egloskerry in the Launceston Rural Learning Trust. The school works closely with two other small schools in the Launceston Rural learning Trust, and is a `feeder` school to Launceston College. Some pupils go to Callington College. Trekenner benefits from close curriculum links with both schools.
The school also has Healthy Schools status; The Active Mark; Extended School status and forms part of the Schools Sports Partnership.
The School is maintained and funded by Cornwall Council.
The building itself was constructed in 1878 originally being the school and school house (the latter now being the office/ library and resource room)
Most of the pupils families live in Lezant Parish, a community of scattered villages, hamlets and farmsteads bordered five miles from Launceston, the ancient capital of Cornwall, five miles from Callington and twenty miles from the centre of Plymouth. Parents occupations and backgrounds are very varied - farmers, locally employed and self-employed people as well as commuters.
A growing number of families travel from the nearby town of Launceston. The school is especially suited to those who prefer a small school community.
The children have a big say in the way they want to make their time at school and the style in which they learn so that they have the best opportunity for self-discovery... LIVING, LAUGHING & LEARNING!
