"Boarding is like having a second home while living with your friends. During weekends, we usually go on trips such as water sports in the summer time, ice skating in winter also horse riding, biking and many other things."
Hi, I’m Cyrus from Hong Kong,
I am currently in the 5th Year, my third Year at Truro School. I chose Truro School because of the opportunities this school gives and the coastal and natural environment we are surrounded by.
I especially like the sports and DT departments. The sports department is located in the SBA centre, which has many facilities, including indoor ballgames and a swimming pool. Games and PE lessons also include outdoor sports such as hockey, rugby, football and many others. The DT department has traditional and technologically advanced tools to step up our design thinking.
To everyone considering Truro School, I urge you to maximise all the opportunities you get here and learn all the skills you are interested in.
Boarding is like having a second home whilst living with your friends. During weekends, we usually go on trips such as water sports in summer, ice skating in winter or Christmas, horse riding, biking and many other things.
Lessons here are 45 minutes per period, consisting of double and single periods. Besides games and PE lessons, clubs are also available before, at lunchtime and after school. These clubs are all related to either sports, arts, music and academia.
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.

Curiosity to always want to discover and learn more, academically and more widely too.
Because we believe that academic excellence is an important part of human excellence. Every child is an individual and we celebrate and develop their uniqueness, helping them to become an independent learner and encouraging each child to explore, understand and cultivate their talent and abilities, whatever they may be.
Compassion to understand and champion the needs of others, in our community and beyond.
Because our mission challenges us to be a vibrant community which enables people to live their lives to the full and transform society for the better. Located in the heart of Cornwall, our distinctive, serene location supports the development of balanced, unpretentious and reflective children who understand their role as global citizens.
Confidence to build resilience by learning from both successes and failures alike.
Because we want every pupil to be comfortable in their own skin, celebrating the uniqueness of each individual in the school community. Through drama, presenting and public speaking opportunities, as well as appearing in productions and concerts, pupils learn key communication skills and gain the confidence to prosper in the real world.
Creativity to be imaginative in how we express ourselves and approach new challenges.
Because we value the development of pupils’ imaginative and creative dimensions as well as their characters. Through a broad curriculum and wide range of co-curricular activities, pupils discover the important balance between creative and logical thinking. These opportunities are fundamental to ensuring your son or daughter discovers their hidden gifts, developing a sense of individuality and a confidence in their own abilities.
Courage to enjoy becoming the very best of who we are, with integrity and ambition.
Because we believe that essential life skills are often best taught outside of the classroom, balancing an academic education. Through a wide-ranging co-curricular programme, we offer every child the chance to participate, perform and lead in the fields of their choice. In a competitive world these opportunities are fundamental to ensuring your son or daughter develops essential life skills and an ambition for life.
