Truro School is a independent co-educational day and boarding school in Cornwall. We strive to be a beacon of inclusive excellence, offering a rigorous and traditional academic curriculum that is balanced with an extensive co-curricular programme. Esse Quam Videri, (to be rather than seem to be), is our living motto calling us to bring energy, honesty, humility and generosity to the enthusiastic pursuit of our mission.

A Close-Knit Boarding Community

Boarding adds a special dimension to a Truro School education and is a thoroughly modern solution to 21st century family life. What boarders love most is being with friends and living together on our extensive campus not 5 minutes’ walk from the centre of Truro but at the same time being able to attend an excellent academic establishment where they know that all of their educational needs will also be met.

Keeping Boarders Active

We are the largest Duke of Edinburgh Award Centre in the South West and have one of the most prolific Music Departments in the region. We also offer over 70 clubs and activities in lunchtimes, after schools and on Wednesday afternoons.

New Facilities

The recent additions of the £4.2 million Sir Ben Ainslie Sports Centre and Heseltine Art Gallery have further developed the already highly successful sports and arts departments.

Senior Girls’ Boarding Update: 22 May 2017

Truro has had some great weather over the weekend - perfect for our surfing trip today! We travelled by minibus to Perranporth for our 2 hour surf lesson. First we had to get changed and as it was sunny, pulling on wetsuits proved tricky. James and Simon were our instructors for the afternoon and really helped us with our technique. Polina was whizzing by and standing up in no time while Anna, who had been on the Portugal surf trip, was making it look effortless....

Senior Boys’ Boarding Blog Update: 22 May 2017

This has been a quieter week in Trennick due to the increased focus on academic studies - the exam season has recently kicked in. The 5th Year students began their study leave and have taken on more responsibility for managing their own time. At morning roll call they have been planning their day and dividing it up between studying in the library, attending lessons or clinics, or visiting the Sir Ben Ainslie Sports Centre. So far they have all adapted well and shown good levels of self...

Junior Boys’ Boarding Update: 22 May 2017

On Friday night, many of the boys went out to do various sporting activities including Nick who travelled to the Girls’ High School to train with the County Hockey Team. Well done to Harry for completing his Duke of Edinburgh weekend expedition near Padstow last weekend. Saturday was spent with free time – with end of year exams approaching, this meant working for a few of the boys, and others went into town to see friends or used the school gym and pool...
