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 in to 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.

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. 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.

  • Dinner is provided at 5.40pm.
  • You do two hours of prep per evening, supervised by teachers.
  • You spend free time relaxing in the house or joining in activities in the Sir Ben Ainslie Sports Centre, supervised by staff.
  • You are collected before 10.00pm
The Truro School Identity

Our school motto, Esse Quam Videri, (to be rather than to seem to be) captures the essence of our identity. From Nursery right through to Sixth Form the Truro School Community shares the same values and approach to education which help to shape our identity. Underpinned by strong Christian principles, we are a caring and inclusive community which values and develops each individual. Click on the links below to find out more.
