“Boarders frequently described boarding at Truro School in terms of being “home from home” and “a community”.”

Truro School is a independent co-educational day and boarding school in Cornwall. We strive to be a beacon of inclusive excellence, offering a rigorous and traditional academic curriculum that is balanced with an extensive co-curricular programme. Esse Quam Videri, (to be rather than seem to be), is our living motto calling us to bring energy, honesty, humility and generosity to the enthusiastic pursuit of our mission.

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.

Keeping Boarders Active

We are the largest Duke of Edinburgh Award Centre in the South West and have one of the most prolific Music Departments in the region. We also offer over 70 clubs and activities in lunchtimes, after schools and on Wednesday afternoons.

New Facilities

The recent additions of the £4.2 million Sir Ben Ainslie Sports Centre and Heseltine Art Gallery have further developed the already highly successful sports and arts departments.
