Amanda Forde

Development and Alumni Relations Officer,

I joined Truro School in July 2019. My role aims to create opportunities for the Truro School community to support the school's ongoing development, including the raising of funds into the Foundation to support future bursary award children.

Before moving to Cornwall, I grew up in Bedfordshire and attended school in Bedford before moving to London at an early age. I studied at UCL, Institute of Education and worked in various roles within education, events and arts administration before moving to west Cornwall.

Please don't hesitate to contact me if you would like to discuss a donation.

If you would like to talk to the team about ways of assisting Truro School Foundation in its work, please contact:
