About the school

Penhale Infant School is a three form entry infant school for children aged 4-7.  In addition to this we have a 50 place nursery.

The school has nine large, bright classrooms as well a purpose built nursery and resource, all of which are resourced to a high standard.  We have a well equipped library, two large halls and our Rainbow room, used to support pupils across the school.  We have recently redeveloped our playground area, which also includes a pond and wildlife area, as well as our foundation stage outside area.

The school serves a community bound by Fratton Road, St Mary’s Road and Fratton railway line.
