The Friends of Truro School (FTS) is designed to bring the strong and inclusive community of Truro School parents, pupils and teachers together. All parents and/or guardians of pupils at Truro School are full members of the FTS.
The FTS works to enrich our children’s school experience, strengthen the school community, raise funds to help enhance the facilities of the school and ensure that our children get the most out of their time here. Thank you very much for your support and we look forward to seeing you at events around the school.
More than ever, this Christmas is the time to support local. We hope you enjoy reading through our 2020 Community Christmas Guide.
If you are a parent, alumni or current student and would like us to feature your business (free of charge) please click below. We will be updating the guide weekly up until the end of term.
The FTS is the link between parents and the school community across the Senior and Prep Schools. In the Prep, we have Class Reps and in the Senior, we have Year Group Reps. These Reps will be the first point of contact for you for the ‘other’ (non education related), practical and social aspects of Truro School life, such as uniform, lost property, getting to know other parents, local area information, etc. A list of the Class and Year Group Reps and their email addresses is available from the school office or via email email@example.com.
We have also created Facebook Pages for each Year Group. These can be found if you search for the following:

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.
