02.09.20 Face mask update

Following last Friday’s government update we have decided to require face masks to be worn in corridors and communal areas from the start of term. This will be for the Senior School only. In effect, we have chosen to adopt Tier 1 of the government’s new risk management scale. This is not because there is any heightened risk in our local area or school, but because we wish to start term erring on the side of caution, and ensuring that all members of our community are comfortable with these measures should they need to be enforced in a future context. Please do contact your child’s tutor if they have any medical or SEND needs that would make an adjustment necessary in response to this decision.

21.08.20 Returning to School

The coronavirus pandemic has presented unprecedented challenges for us all; challenges that at Truro School we have met with creativity, courage and compassion. We also know that life at home for many Truro School families has been difficult, and we are eager to see our pupils safely back to School, where they belong.
