3 Reasons to Choose Truro Prep School

Here at Truro Pre-Prep we believe that education is so much more than simply what happens in the classroom.
In their most recent review (2014), the Good School’s Guide reported that Truro Prep is:

“A happy school, where children get the chance to learn, have fun and grow up in their own time – as well as make the most of the glorious countryside and coastline.”

In addition, we are proud to have outstanding Forest School provision and facilities. We have two fully qualified and highly skilled Forest School Co-ordinators who through their training are able to bring out the most from the outdoor learning environment.
Bringing up young children can be demanding and we understand that working parents are very busy, often working overtime.
Early Birds’ Club is available for pupils in the dining hall from 7.45am with breakfast, games and activities to get the morning started.
There is an After School Care Club that runs from 3:45pm to 5:30pm. Held in the Pre-Prep building, a variety of group activities are available enabling you to work flexibly whilst ensuring that your children are happy and in safe hands.
Our teachers are delighted to provide a rich and varied curriculum at Truro Prep School. Elements of the curriculum include building confidence, understanding the world around us, physical development and much more.
To find out what your son or daughter could be studying in detail, please visit our curriculum page.
