We understand that it can be difficult for parents to strike the right balance between work, family and free time. At Truro School Prep, we offer significant hours of wraparound care both before and after school, giving you that much needed flexibility and breathing space.
Be it an early drop-off or a 6.15pm pickup, we want your child to greet you with a warm hug and a cheek-to-cheek smile each and every day.
There are numerous opportunities to keep your child active and extend their learning from Monday through to Friday.
Starting at 7.45am, pupils can enjoy a delicious healthy breakfast and receive excellent care until school starts. There are also a range of early bird clubs that run on different days of the week including cricket, swimming and orchestra.
We offer a huge range of after school activities. From the national award-winning Chamber Choir to Bushcraft, as well as a whole host of sports; there is bound to be something that captures your child’s imagination. For our younger pupils there is a club held in the Pre-Prep building where a variety of activities are available.
Available from 4.00 pm to 5.30pm. Pupils can also join in with homework sessions after their clubs finish.
Has it been a long day? Save the hassle of cooking with Supper Club. Taking place between 5.30pm and 6.15pm, your child can enjoy a simple hot or cold meal before collection.
There are a huge range of clubs and activities before and after school, meaning that your child is bound to discover a handful of new hobbies. There are around 15 morning activities per week, lunchtime 20, and over 30 activities to choose from after school.
Our school motto, Esse Quam Videri (to be, rather than to seem to be), captures the essence of our identity and is defined by the 5 C's below. Underpinned by strong Christian principles, we are a caring and inclusive community which values, nurtures and develops each individual.

Curiosity to always want to discover and learn more, academically and more widely too.
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.
Compassion to understand and champion the needs of others, in our community and beyond.
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.
Confidence to build resilience by learning from both successes and failures alike.
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.
Creativity to be imaginative in how we express ourselves and approach new challenges.
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.
Courage to enjoy becoming the very best of who we are, with integrity and ambition.
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.
