What says..

On our visit, we followed the yellow brick road to the library and saw pupils curled up on beanbags nose in book, or sitting at tables with older pupils (literacy readers) to read together. The library is central to life at Plymstock. ‘One of the major reasons we chose Plymstock over other local schools was due to the superb range of sports facilities available to pupils,’ a parent told us.

Thank the school

Parents and pupils often have cause to acknowledge the help and support they have received from their schools, for example in helping in the choice of further education or careers.
