Senior Boys’ Boarding Update: 28 November

Trennick students have had another busy week and are taking full use of the fantastic opportunities available to them.

During the week Jay, Sammy and Andrey have been attending training sessions at the Truro Fencing Academy which is based in the schools’ old gym. It is one of the country’s top fencing clubs and has sent fencers and coaches to the recent Olympics.

Once again some Trennick boys were involved in the Ten Tors expedition training on Saturday. Rob and Dom both walked from Pendeen to St. Ives – one of the most demanding but stunning sections of the Cornwall Coast Path with fantastic views of the industrial mining heritage. It is hoped that next spring Rob and Dom will lead a Trennick expedition along a section of the coast path.

Josh and Rory were busy in action for the 1st XV rugby team on Saturday – it was great to see Josh make his debut and run in a try during the victory against West Buckland School.

Torin has been performing well in the school play – The Fiddler on the Roof. Some of the Trennick boys managed to watch him in action in the Burrell Theatre.

Joe has been away all weekend in London on a Young Investment Bankers’ Weekend. It is hoped that he returns to school with an offer for a Summer Internship. He follows our Head of House, Henry who also visited London recently to explore finance opportunities in the City.

On Sunday the house visited Falmouth – a nearby seaside town with an important maritime heritage. It is the well known as the last port for ships sailing out across the Atlantic Ocean or the first port home. There is currently one of the best arts colleges in the country based in Falmouth which has a close link with the University of Exeter. It is a popular destination for Truro School leavers who wish to take a foundation course in the arts. The trip included the first-rate National Maritime Museum where several of the students posed next to the Olympic gold medal winning dinghy of the former Truro School pupil Sir Ben Ainslie.
