It is with much regret, that due to the Coronavirus pandemic, all Old Truronian events have been placed on hold for the foreseeable future. We very much miss gathering our Old Truronian community together through the various events we usually host throughout the year. Rest assured, as soon as circumstances permit, we will resume our annual events calendar.
In the meantime, please keep safe and well.
From the Development office team.
If you would like to organise a reunion, either at the School or elsewhere – please get in touch with us to assist you with any arrangements at email@example.com.
Many Old Truronians return to visit the Sixth Form, ready to inspire our current students through talks and workshops, often offering personalised advice whilst here. OT’s also play an essential role in delivering our Medical Pathways Programme.
Truro School Connected is as important in shaping the achievements of our younger alumni as it is in helping them towards their next steps at 18. Recent alumni are encouraged to make use of Truro School Connected through the Development team and are invited to networking events in London and Bristol. These play an essential role in bringing members of our community together and provide a platform for professional and social networking long after a student has left the Sixth Form. Find out more about Truro School Connected here.
Alumni are also welcome to visit the School and grounds at any time during School hours. We would be delighted to chaperone you and any guests around the School, taking you back to any memorable classrooms and showing you what may have changed since your time. If you would like to arrange a visit, please email the Development team at firstname.lastname@example.org.
As well as special Old Truronian events, alumni are very welcome to other School events such as performances at the Burrell Theatre and exhibition viewings of beautiful exhibitions at the Heseltine Gallery, which is open to the public at selected times. The School will also once again host a stand at the Royal Cornwall Show in 2021 with restrictions permitting. Come visit us there for refreshments and a chat.

Our school motto, Esse Quam Videri (to be, rather than to seem to be), captures the essence of our identity and is defined by the 5 C's below. Underpinned by strong Christian principles, we are a caring and inclusive community which values, nurtures and develops each individual.

To be and to become learners for life, to enjoy the discovery and development of knowledge, understanding, skills and interests, and to critically examine the world around us.
Because we believe that academic excellence is an important part of human excellence. Every child is an individual and we celebrate and develop their uniqueness, helping them to become an independent learner and encouraging each child to explore, understand and cultivate their talent and abilities, whatever they may be.
To be aware of and to champion the needs of others, with charitable hearts, as part of a commitment to benefit the Cornish community, and the world beyond.
Because our mission challenges us to be a vibrant community which enables people to live their lives to the full and transform society for the better. Located in the heart of Cornwall, our distinctive, serene location supports the development of balanced, unpretentious and reflective children who understand their role as global citizens.
To be people who relish intellectual and wider challenge, and to build resilience by learning from both success and failure alike, on our educational journeys.
Because we want every pupil to be comfortable in their own skin, celebrating the uniqueness of each individual in the school community. Through drama, presenting and public speaking opportunities, as well as appearing in productions and concerts, pupils learn key communication skills and gain the confidence to prosper in the real world.
To be people who relish the search for new ideas and approaches that positively and sustainably shape our lives, the lives of others, and our environment.
Because we value the development of pupils’ imaginative and creative dimensions as well as their characters. Through a broad curriculum and wide range of co-curricular activities, pupils discover the important balance between creative and logical thinking. These opportunities are fundamental to ensuring your son or daughter discovers their hidden gifts, developing a sense of individuality and a confidence in their own abilities.
To be and to become the very best of who we are, by bravely examining and discovering the personal beliefs and faiths that will guide us through our lives.
Because we believe that essential life skills are often best taught outside of the classroom, balancing an academic education. Through a wide-ranging co-curricular programme, we offer every child the chance to participate, perform and lead in the fields of their choice. In a competitive world these opportunities are fundamental to ensuring your son or daughter develops essential life skills and an ambition for life.
