Old Truronian Event: Truro School Connected – Bristol

On Wednesday 26 February, Old Truronians from a range of decades attended the first ever Truro School Connected – Bristol networking event.  Held at The Clifton Club by generous arrangement from alumni Jerry Barnes CO79 who is Chairman of the Club.  The event provided an opportunity for alumni to network with their fellow Truronians now that most have moved into their chosen careers.

The many sectors that Old Truronians have entered into who attended include: finance, aeronautical engineering, farming, education, dentistry, graphic design, law, media, architecture and medicine to name a few. It was also a pleasure to welcome younger alumni, all of whom who are currently studying at either the University of Bristol, University of Bath and the University of Cardiff, providing an excellent opportunity for them to enjoy a drink and seek guidance from alumni with experience in the careers they are hoping to go into.

The Development team were delighted to have received the following feedback from Old Truronians following the event:

“I wanted to write briefly to thank you both for last night’s event in Clifton. Maggie and I both enjoyed it very much; it was our first TSA event (after all this time) but it certainly won’t be our last. Everyone that we met was very friendly and the whole evening was very well organised, so well done all of you (and we enjoyed the wine and nibbles!)”
John Roberts CO62
“The club was great the food and reception were lovely. Just an amazing evening. I met so many interesting people and have connected with them so well. I just did not know how powerful our alumni is in Exeter and Bristol. I have worked HERE on and off since my student days. I envy those new students embarking on their careers who can hook into the Truro School Connected.”
Matt Mullaly CO86


Thank you to The Clifton Club for being wonderful hosts for the evening and to all who attended.

The Development and Alumni Relations team are now looking forward to the Reunion Tea Party on Friday 3 April and the 100th Annual Reunion Dinner on Saturday 5 September 2020. Bookings are open now for both events.
