Ways to Board

Boarding at Truro School is all about feeling at home; the warm and welcoming houses, the support of friends and family and settling into the beautiful city of Truro.

There are four different boarding options at Truro School:

Full Boarder

You stay full time, including weekends, and return home for the holidays. Truro School does not have exeat weekends.

Weekly Boarder

You board from Monday to Friday evening and go home for the weekends.

Flexi Boarder

You stay over now and again, if your parents are away, you have exams, or if you stay late at school for activities or productions. Minimum 2 night stay, maximum number of nights per term is 20.

Day Boarder

You join the boarders for meals and prep but go home for the night.

Day boarding

Day boarding is an increasingly popular option as it offers a practical solution to the complications of modern family life.

After school you report to your boarding school house – then you can join in with any school activities, use the library, go into town, or simply spend time with your friends in the house.
