Boarding in Cornwall

Here at Truro School in Cornwall, we love the fact that 80% of our county is surrounded by sea and our boarders take full advantage of the 300 miles of beautiful coastline, dramatic headlands and wild moorlands. Every weekend spells a chance to explore Cornwall and participate in activities such as Camel Trail cycle rides; Poldu Cove; Oasis fun pool; laser tag; quad biking; coasteering; Treasure Land; horse-riding and much more.

For our International Boarders, Cornwall offers a world of adventure and culture and we encourage them to embrace as much as they can during their time at Truro School.

In today’s society young people can leave school with straight A grades and still struggle in the real world. This is why we firmly believe in nurturing students wholeheartedly, developing both academic and personal skills. A Truro School education is about so much more than what happens in the classroom. Our end goal is to raise affable young girls and boys who are ready to make a difference when they move on to jobs and universities at the age of 18.

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.

The Truro School Identity

Our school motto, Esse Quam Videri (to be, rather than to seem to be), captures the essence of our identity and is defined by the 5 C's below. Underpinned by strong Christian principles, we are a caring and inclusive community which values, nurtures and develops each individual.
