Boarding School of the Year

On behalf of our boarding community, we are delighted to share the excellent news that Truro School has been shortlisted for ‘Boarding School of the Year’ at the Independent Schools of the Year 2023.

Head of Boarding, David McKeown, joined in 2022 and has led boarding in the UK and abroad for many years. David says, “We are proud of the bespoke boarding offering. We like the fact that we know the students and their families well. We want our boarders to feel happy and settled here with us. It is a home away from home.”

As one boarder, Gabriel, says, “Boarding at Truro School is like one big family” and we are very excited to have been shortlisted from hundreds of schools across the country in the Independent Schools of the Year Awards, designed to ‘highlight the excellence of the student experience offered by the UK’s amazing independent schools’.

Truro School Prep has also been shortlisted for ‘Prep School of the Year’.

A list of Finalists will be published in September and the winners, chosen by the Independent Schools of the Year judging panel will be announced at an awards ceremony in October.
