Truro School is proud to announce the launch of the Truro School Music Project, a transformative initiative that will enrich the musical landscape within the school, the city of Truro, and the county of Cornwall.
With a firm belief in the pivotal role of music in education and community and cultural life, the Truro School Music Project will see the creation of a new multi-million-pound music centre and a refurbished multi-use Hall, fostering musical participation, excellence, and inclusion within the school and the broader community.
Scheduled for completion at the start of 2026, the Truro School Music Project will create a hub for musical education and aspiration in Cornwall, offering state-of-the-art facilities for pupils, the Truro community, and beyond. This project also paves the way for improved facilities to support pupil wellbeing too.
The project aligns with Truro School’s rich musical tradition, which delivers around 40 annual concerts and gigs, an annual Summer Festival, individual music lessons for over 250 pupils, and regular notable multi-show performances of major musicals.
The Truro School Music Project designs will be launched to the community during an event celebrating the importance of music and promises significant improvements, including:
Beyond Truro School, the Music Project aims to widen musical access and musical aspiration, providing a vibrant musical hub for Truro and Cornwall.
Truro School Head, Andy Johnson, commented, “I am proud to be heading a School that embraces the transformative power of music education, investing with prudence and ambition in the cultural enrichment of the School and Cornwall’s wider community.”
Head of Service at Cornwall Music Service Trust (CMST), Gareth Churcher, said, “Cornwall Music Service Trust (CMST) is a charity providing music teaching, support, and therapy for close to 10,000 children across over 240 schools or settings in Cornwall and we see this facility as incredibly important for music education in Cornwall. We are now in our 10th year of operation and are very excited about the tangible opportunities the Music Project will present, providing an efficient and effective environment to facilitate our work as a charity.”
Truro School is working alongside Tate + Co, one of the UK’s leading sustainable architect firms, and Truro-based property and construction consultants, Ward Williams Associates, to deliver the project.
