To honour the passion and vision of this inspirational educator, wonderful husband, father, grandfather, friend and wise counsel to countless others – we launched the GUY DODD BURSARY AWARD APPEAL in late 2020.
Together, we can make a difference. Together, we can change lives. Esse Quam Videri.
Take a moment to read about the Guy Dodd Bursary Appeal in full below:
Guy Dodd was Headmaster of Truro School from 1993 – 2001. During that time Guy raised funds to establish the Truro School Endowment Fund. In 2015, former Headmaster, Andrew Gordon-Brown, approached Guy asking for his guidance and wisdom to help find a group of passionate individuals who together could form a Board of Trustees and raise funds for transformational bursaries. From their vision the Truro School Foundation was created and today over 100 children at Truro School receive bursary assistance, supported by the School and Truro School Foundation.
“I alert you to the Guy Dodd Bursary Award Appeal, should you be keen and able to support it in any way, in what I and the Foundation recognise are challenging times for us all. We strive for a bursary system that both puts an arm around those in temporary need, and gives a leg up to those who otherwise could not reach.”
Andy Johnson, Head

Our school motto, Esse Quam Videri (to be, rather than to seem to be), captures the essence of our identity and is defined by the 5 C's below. Underpinned by strong Christian principles, we are a caring and inclusive community which values, nurtures and develops each individual.

To be and to become learners for life, to enjoy the discovery and development of knowledge, understanding, skills and interests, and to critically examine the world around us.
Because we believe that academic excellence is an important part of human excellence. Every child is an individual and we celebrate and develop their uniqueness, helping them to become an independent learner and encouraging each child to explore, understand and cultivate their talent and abilities, whatever they may be.
To be aware of and to champion the needs of others, with charitable hearts, as part of a commitment to benefit the Cornish community, and the world beyond.
Because our mission challenges us to be a vibrant community which enables people to live their lives to the full and transform society for the better. Located in the heart of Cornwall, our distinctive, serene location supports the development of balanced, unpretentious and reflective children who understand their role as global citizens.
To be people who relish intellectual and wider challenge, and to build resilience by learning from both success and failure alike, on our educational journeys.
Because we want every pupil to be comfortable in their own skin, celebrating the uniqueness of each individual in the school community. Through drama, presenting and public speaking opportunities, as well as appearing in productions and concerts, pupils learn key communication skills and gain the confidence to prosper in the real world.
To be people who relish the search for new ideas and approaches that positively and sustainably shape our lives, the lives of others, and our environment.
Because we value the development of pupils’ imaginative and creative dimensions as well as their characters. Through a broad curriculum and wide range of co-curricular activities, pupils discover the important balance between creative and logical thinking. These opportunities are fundamental to ensuring your son or daughter discovers their hidden gifts, developing a sense of individuality and a confidence in their own abilities.
To be and to become the very best of who we are, by bravely examining and discovering the personal beliefs and faiths that will guide us through our lives.
Because we believe that essential life skills are often best taught outside of the classroom, balancing an academic education. Through a wide-ranging co-curricular programme, we offer every child the chance to participate, perform and lead in the fields of their choice. In a competitive world these opportunities are fundamental to ensuring your son or daughter develops essential life skills and an ambition for life.
