The name has been proposed by the school’s temporary governing body following suggestions made by children from Angle, Orielton and Stackpole schools.


It reflects the fact that the new school will serve a wide area - ‘Penrhyn’ is Welsh for ‘peninsula’. The name will be formally determined by Pembrokeshire County Council’s cabinet at a future date.

Construction work on the new school has recently started, and Clr. David Lloyd, cabinet member for education, said: “I’m thrilled to witness the start of this hugely important educational provision for children in this area, which I am certain will contribute towards them achieving their full potential.”

Angle, Orielton and Stackpole primary schools will close at the end of the summer term in 2017 and it was intended that pupils transferred to the new Penrhyn School at Hundleton in September 2017.
