Nicky Berridge

Development and Alumni Relations Manager,

Since joining Truro School as Development and Alumni Relations Manager I have had the pleasure of meeting many alumni, corresponded with many more and thoroughly enjoyed every moment.

I moved to Cornwall with my daughter and son in 2003. My son began his senior education at Truro School in 2007 having been lucky enough to be awarded a means tested bursary. He left in 2014 after 7 happy years. Two years later, in 2016, I began working for the School. My affinity with the Truro School Community doesn’t stop there, I am now married to Ian, a Cornish farmer and also Truro School alumni, as are his brother, cousin and late father.

As Clerk to the Foundation Trustees I am passionate about Truro School Foundation, not least because I have had first-hand knowledge of the difference it can make to a young person’s life. My hope is, that through the continued generous support from Truro School Community, the Foundation will move from strength to strength, widening access further, thus enabling many more families and youngsters to benefit, as my own have.

Amanda Forde

Development and Alumni Relations Officer,

I am the newest member of the team having joined Truro School in July 2019. My role involves continuing to maintain, build and reinforce relationships between the Truro School Community, Foundation and Association. My position also plays a vital role in delivering Truro School Connected to support current students through a professional networking programme with the help of our ever-achieving and supportive alumni. 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.
