Sixth Form Open Evening

We hold a designated Sixth Form Open Evening every year. During the evening there will be the opportunity to visit each subject, where the Head of Department will be happy to answer any questions you have. Take the opportunity to see what sort of thing you could expect from life at Truro School’s Sixth Form and talk to current students in a relaxed environment.
