Nicky Berridge

Development and Alumni Relations Manager,

Since joining Truro School as Development and Alumni Relations Manager I have had the pleasure of meeting many alumni, corresponded with many more and thoroughly enjoyed every moment.

I moved to Cornwall with my daughter and son in 2003. My son began his senior education at Truro School in 2007 having been lucky enough to be awarded a means tested bursary. He left in 2014 after 7 happy years. Two years later, in 2016, I began working for the School. My affinity with the Truro School Community doesn’t stop there, I am now married to Ian, a Cornish farmer and also Truro School alumni, as are his brother, cousin and late father.

As Clerk to the Foundation Trustees I am passionate about Truro School Foundation, not least because I have had first-hand knowledge of the difference it can make to a young person’s life. My hope is, that through the continued generous support from Truro School Community, the Foundation will move from strength to strength, widening access further, thus enabling many more families and youngsters to benefit, as my own have.

Amanda Forde

Development and Alumni Relations Officer,

I am the newest member of the team having joined Truro School in July 2019. My role involves continuing to maintain, build and reinforce relationships between the Truro School Community, Foundation and the Association. My position also plays a vital role in creating all the Old Truronian publications and supporting our brilliant careers team with Truro School Connected - linking up Old Truronians with current students.

Before joining the team, I grew up in Bedfordshire, studied at UCL Institute of Education and worked in various roles within education, events and arts administration in London before moving to west Cornwall with my Cornish partner.

I am usually the first point of contact for any Old Truronian related queries so please don't hesitate to get in touch. I look forward to knowing as many OT's as possible.

Jo Wood

School Archivist,

I’ve been looking after the School Archive since January 2003. I grew up in Cornwall and went to Truro High School before studying History, firstly at Royal Holloway and then at Exeter University. My interest in local history has led to various projects including researching and writing about Trerice and its owners, the Cornwall Music Festival and Truro School.
