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 from the 4th – 6th June 2020. 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. From Nursery right through to Sixth Form the Truro School Community shares the same values and approach to education which help to shape our identity. Underpinned by strong Christian principles, we are a caring and inclusive community which values, nurtures and develops each individual. Click on the links below to find out more.
DEVELOPING INDIVIDUAL EXCELLENCE AT EVERY LEVEL
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 inspire creativity, ignite imaginations and help each pupil to find and fully develop his or her talents.
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.
DEVELOPING PUPILS WHO ARE AT EASE WITH THEMSELVES AND EACH OTHER
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 forge pupil characters and ambition through challenges and opportunities.
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.
DEVELOPING STUDENTS WHO RESPECT OTHER PEOPLE AND THE WORLD AROUND THEM
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.
ENCOURAGING PUPILS TO DEVELOP THEIR OWN WAY OF THINKING
Because we encourage pupils towards a personally developed life philosophy. Underlying all that we do is a solid foundation based on the ethos and values of Christianity. We nurture and challenge each individual child in a caring environment that is inclusive, enjoys the diversity within our School Community and beyond, and supports a genuine desire to question what we see and what we know.
