Welcoming Our New 1st Years

We have had the pleasure of welcoming our incoming 1st Years, who will join us at Truro School in September. Our 1st Years are a blend of those moving up from Truro School Prep and those coming from local, national and international schools.

These taster days are part of our structured induction programme, which helps to ease the transition for our newest recruits into our Senior School. Held across two mornings, they are designed to be lots of fun, with pupils enjoying a range of subjects including Chemistry, PE, Music and Drama.

There was certainly plenty to engage them; from (purposely) setting fire to the floor in Chemistry to pretending to lift ENORMOUS loaves of bread in drama, there was much fun and plenty of laughter shared. It was wonderful to see our new pupils forming bonds with their peers ahead of the new school year.

The day also provides a welcome opportunity for Mr Johnson and the wider staff body, including our newly appointed Head of 1st Year, Mr Mill, and Head of Lower School, Mrs Thurlow, to chat with new families in an informal setting.

These mornings will be followed by a further settling-in day before the term officially starts; another chance to ensure that the introduction to life at Truro School is as smooth and enjoyable as possible.

We would like to welcome our new pupils and their families and thank all the staff who made today so warm, welcoming and fun.
