Cowen said: “We were pleased to welcome Sir David to Penryn and share our vision with him.

“Joining Aspire is an important part of our plan to improve opportunities and raise achievement.

“The staff have worked incredibly hard since the junior and infant schools merged, and now we’re in a strong position to move forward.”

Sir David said: “For a young person, there is nothing more important than the quality of the education that they receive. The provision that is made for the children at Penryn Primary Academy and the support provided for them by the Aspire Academy Trust will prove significant in ensuring that each child meets and exceeds their personal best.

“It has been a pleasure to spend time in Cornwall this week.”
