Friends of Truro School
The purpose of the Friends of Truro School society is to bring together the teaching and parenting communities.
The FTS would like to welcome you to the Truro School Community. Everyone who attends Truro School automatically becomes a member of the FTS. The FTS has a dual role.
The primary objective of the FTS is to bring the strong and inclusive community of Truro parents, pupils and teachers together to enrich our children’s school experience and help them to get the most out of their time at Truro School and Truro Prep School. In addition, the FTS will coordinate with Truro School and Truro Prep School to raise funds to help enhance the facilities and education.
The next FTS meeting is scheduled for 27 April 2017.
The FTS organises regular events at the Prep and Truro School – these include the Quiz and Curry night, the Fun Triathlon and the Christmas Fair. Please see the weekly bulletin and Truro School community pages for more details.
If you would like to help out at events or get involved with the FTS or for any other information please send an email to FTS@truroschool.com
The FTS Committee are pleased that they now have a group of area representatives who are able and willing to help any parents, or prospective parents, living in Cornwall or moving into the area. This will enable parents to get together in more localised venues. For new parents to the school community and to Cornwall, it will give you the opportunity to make contact with other parents and students in your area.
If you would like to make contact with representatives in any of the following areas, please contact Laura Rundle, FTS Area Rep Coordinator, on email@example.com and she will pass your details on to the appropriate representative.
Areas covered are:
- Fowey/St Austell
- Truro/Feock/St Agnes/Perranporth/Goonhavern/Bissoe/Perranwell
- Penzance/St Ives/Hayle
- Falmouth/Penryn/Mylor/Ponsanooth/Devoran/Carnon Downs

Truro Prep Summer Fair
Saturday 17 June 2017
It was a sweltering day, but it didn’t stop the crowds flocking to the Mad Hatters Tea Party. Themed side stalls, face painting, a hat parade, sizzling sausages and the samba band all contributed to a very special day. A big thank you to everyone who came, helped, or contributed their time. The new gazebos in house colours were on full display and were much needed in the heat.
FTS Barn Dance – 24 March 2017
Friends and family of Truro School were invited to don their checked shirts and straw hats for a Barn Dance on Friday 24 March. With our very own Mr MacQuarrie and his band providing the lively music, there was plenty of ‘Do-Si-Do’ing!
Thank you to everyone who came and made it such a wonderful atmosphere on the evening.
FTS Christmas Fair – 9 December 2016
The annual Friends of Truro School (FTS) Christmas Fair took place this Friday at the Prep and it was another special occasion; Father Christmas visited with his (very real) reindeer! There were a wide range of activities for all to enjoy including lucky dips; make your own Christingles; a raffle; toy and book stalls, and a photo booth. It was a lovely family atmosphere and the children all had a great time. Money raised this year will go to Children’s Hospice South West.
