Speech Day

Speech Day at both the Prep and Senior School is a celebration of all the remarkable achievements from the academic year gone by.

It is a time for parents, pupils, students and staff to come together, to reflect, to commend those who are awarded prizes for sustained attainment and for commitment and effort throughout the year and to prepare our leavers for the next stage in their lives.

Senior Speech Day 2021

A huge thank you to Sophie Daud, Chair of the Y7 (official youth engagement group for the G7 Leaders’ Summit), for sharing her inspiring and motivating words about the role and impact that young leaders can have in the world.

After a year of uncertainties and changes it was with great pleasure, and some relief, that we were able to welcome prize winners and Upper Sixth students, along with their parents, to celebrate another busy and successful year.

Prep Speech Day 2021

With great pleasure, we welcomed our guest speaker, Mr Chris Lubbe, and our audience of Year 6 pupils and parents, to this morning’s Prep Prize Giving.

An internationally acclaimed inspirational keynote speaker and storyteller, Chris shared his incredible story of resistance against ‘apartheid’, keeping his audience spell-bound as he took them on a journey of discovery.

Chris was joined on the stage by Chair of Governors, Richard Thomas, Truro School Head, Andy Johnson, Head of Prep, Sarah Patterson, Deputy Head of Prep, James Frewer and most importantly, all of our super Prep prize winners.

Prep Speech Day 2020

Prep Speech Day 2020 had a slightly more virtual and socially distanced format this year. Instead of pupils gathered in the Assembly Hall and proud parents watching, the prizes were filmed ready for parents to watch this morning.

Year 6 then made their way outside where they collected their prizes from the table where Ms Patterson directed them to their prize instead of shaking their hands.

Senior Speech Day 2019

Parents, friends and pupils gathered in the Sir Ben Ainslie Sports Centre on Friday 5 July to celebrate all of the remarkable achievements from the academic year.

This year, we welcomed guest speaker and Truro School Alumni, Tim Just, Head of Space at UK Research and Innovation, alongside The Headmaster, Mr Andrew Gordon-Brown and Chairman of Governors, Mr Kim Conchie.

Students from each year group were awarded prizes for sustained attainment and for commitment and effort throughout the year. School prizes were awarded to excellent ambassadors, all of whom demonstrate great commitment and achievement in their fields.

Prep Speech Day 2019

Offshore and ocean sailor Susie Goodall joined our Year 3 to 6 pupils, their families and friends to celebrate the children’s endeavours, aspirations and achievements at this year’s Prep Speech Day.

The Welcome was given by Kim Conchie, Chair of Governors and the Opening Prayer by Andrew Gordon-Brown, Headmaster. Sarah Patterson, Head of Prep, then delivered her reflection on the year gone by before distributing prizes alongside Guest Speaker Susie Goodall, who talked about the importance of embracing new chapters in her inspirational speech. Billy S then expressed the vote of thanks before a final blessing by Reverend Aubin de Gruchy.
