Truro School Governor

Truro School is seeking to recruit two new Governors interested in applying their skills and experience to a rewarding voluntary role helping to shape our young people’s future.

Truro School is situated over two campuses, the Senior School set within 40 acres of sports fields and open spaces overlooking Truro and its iconic Cathedral, and a vibrant Prep School located across the city.

Truro School was founded with an ethos of compassionate ambition.  Truro School’s motto “Esse Quam Videri” (to be rather than seem to be) captures the essence of our identity. Underpinned by strong Christian principles, we are a caring and inclusive community which values, nurtures and develops each individual.

Our mission is to be the independent school of choice in the South West and our Governors are a key part of providing the strategic and effective leadership needed to achieve this.

The Board works closely with the Head and Senior Leadership Team acting as a “critical friend”, providing challenge and support in equal measure. All our Governors have integrity, strong personal and professional values and a willingness to challenge and ask questions along with an understanding of the needs of the School and an appreciation of our values.

We welcome interest from anyone who feels they have the right skills or experience to contribute to the work of the Board.  At this time, we are especially keen to hear from those with a background in either buildings & estates, sustainability, wellbeing, human resources or education.

We actively encourage applications from all members of society, regardless of background, culture, gender, ethnicity, disability, or age.  Importance is placed on the “mind-set, skill-set and tool-set” that individuals can offer. Full training and support will be provided.  Cornish residency is not essential.

If you are interested in an initial conversation, please contact the School through the Clerk to the Governor’s office, [email protected]:  Closing Date: 9 May, 2021
