A welcome from the Head

The School is situated over two campuses, the Senior School set within 40 acres of sports fields and open spaces overlooking Truro and its iconic Cathedral, and a vibrant Prep School located next to the Royal Cornwall Hospital.

Truro School was founded with an ethos of compassionate ambition. We have high academic standards that are supported and balanced alongside a well-developed and personalised pastoral support network, excellent facilities and an extensive range of co-curricular opportunities.
