Welcome to Archbishop Benson Primary School...
Mrs Helen Giblett
|Archbishop Benson School is a Church of England Aided School which is built within a large attractive site overlooking the beautiful City of Truro.
We have a Children's Centre in the grounds which provides a huge variety of services for children and their families.
It is a very happy and successful school. Our high standards are sustained because staff, Governors, parents and children work together in an atmosphere of mutual trust, care and respect the distinguishing features of a Christian Community.
In addition to our high academic achievement, we are proud that our school has a strong sporting tradition. Music and the arts also play an important part of school life.
Parents are always welcome, whether to discuss their childs progress, to help in school, to take part in Family Learning or to join our Friends of the School. We look forward to meeting you.
