The Senior School educates around 840 pupils and is set within 40 acres of sports fields and open spaces overlooking Truro and its iconic Cathedral. The Prep School educates around 300 pupils and is located next to the Royal Cornwall Hospital. We have superb facilities and resources at both sites that support our forward-looking educational ambitions.

We employ more than 120 teachers and 230 non-teachers (full time and part time) all of which are proud to be part of the strong community that we have built here and of the excitement and development we offer both children and staff that join us. We are genuinely a supportive and caring school and we are encouraged to engage, provide and grasp all opportunities that are presented to us.

Truro School recognises the outstanding people we have, both teaching and non-teaching, and rewards them with great value benefits including free lunch each day, shopping vouchers and discounts via our Employee Benefits platform, free use of our swimming pool and fitness suite and pension – to name but a few.
