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.
Click on the links below to find out more.
Curiosity to always want to discover and learn more, academically and more widely too.
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.
Compassion to understand and champion the needs of others, in our community and 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.
Confidence to build resilience by learning from both successes and failures alike.
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.
Creativity to be imaginative in how we express ourselves and approach new challenges.
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.
Courage to enjoy becoming the very best of who we are, with integrity and ambition.
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.
