Sport and Outdoor Activity

Truro School Prep is blessed with outstanding sporting facilities, as well as a group of experienced and enthusiastic coaches, and takes great pride in offering a broad range of sporting opportunities for all pupils to try, regardless of their ability.

Participation and sportsmanship

At Truro School Prep we place an emphasis on participation and sportsmanship, with the ultimate aim of instilling in our pupils a healthy, life-long enjoyment of sport.

A comprehensive and competitive fixture list runs across all major sports and all year groups, all year round, providing opportunities at every level. Pupils of all ability are encouraged to participate and the high standard of coaching helps all pupils to reach their full potential.

Balanced sports curriculum

Each week we dedicate time within the curriculum on PE and games; from Reception to Year 2, the children have weekly lessons for PE and swimming and from Year 3 – Year 6 the children have three separate weekly lessons for PE, Games and Activities, combining diverse elements, such as outdoor and adventurous activities, such as kayaking, bushcraft and cycling with essential life skills, including first aid, swimming lifesaving, cookery and dance.

In addition, pupils are encouraged to join in with our extensive range of sporting clubs and activities outside of the curriculum.
