About the Foundation

The Gift of Education – For Future Generations

Truro School is committed to giving access to a Truro School education to as many children as possible, regardless of parental means. In order to do this the school already offers a small number of bursaries. We aim to augment these with our Foundation Awards: for boys and girls who we believe will thrive in the Truro School environment but due to family circumstances require full or part assistance with school fees. They will have the understanding, commitment and willingness to make a significant contribution to the life of Truro School, positively influencing others along the way.

The Truro School Foundation has taken on the challenge of extending the School’s bursary programme. It brings together members of the whole School community who share my belief that we should commit ourselves to educating talented and enthusiastic young people. At Truro School they will have the opportunity to develop existing talents, find new ones and achieve their ambitions.

The Truro School Identity

Our school motto, Esse Quam Videri, (to be rather than to seem to be) captures the essence of our identity. From Nursery right through to Sixth Form the Truro School Community shares the same values and approach to education which help to shape our identity. Underpinned by strong Christian principles, we are a caring and inclusive community which values, nurtures and develops each individual. Click on the links below to find out more.
