"Truro School made my transition from Korea to the UK very easy. It has a lovely and peaceful environment; I’m sure anyone will like it here."
Hello, my name is Taerim, and I am from South Korea.
I joined Truro School sixth form last September. I chose Truro School because I had many recommendations from people, and I got an excellent impression from my interview with the headmaster.
My favourite thing about Truro School is that the school is very friendly, and everyone is so welcoming to new people. Boarding in Truro School is very nice in that it feels like home, and all the students in the boarding house get to know each other well.
I like the fact that lessons have small class sizes. We have regular assessments in lessons and get good feedback from our teachers.
There are a lot of clubs offered at the school, and I feel we are so lucky to have so many options available. I get a lot of support from teachers on my subjects and career choices. I got some great advice about my supra-curricular activities and choosing my career path, which I found really helpful. I want to study biomedicine or biochemistry at university, although I haven’t yet decided about universities.
I absolutely recommend coming to Truro School. The school made my transition from Korea to the UK very easy. Truro School has a lovely and peaceful environment; I’m sure anyone will like it here.

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.
