Your Future Begins Here

Truro School’s Sixth Form is a strong community of students who are ready to learn, grow, develop and flourish together. The leading co-educational A-Level provider in Cornwall, we combine an excellent academic environment with small class sizes, extended learning opportunities, academic extensions, weekly clinics, personal mentor and supra-curricular activities to ensure students leave the school very well prepared for the next stage in their lives.

As we look ahead to the next academic year, we look forward to welcoming you on the first step of your Sixth Form journey. Like those before you, you will be given the individual guidance and support to thrive, providing the springboard to your future.

Here at Truro School we believe that, whilst our excellent examination results and university outcomes speak for themselves, they should only be the culmination of a memorable two years that help you to develop as a well-rounded individual. That is why our Sixth Form delivers excellent academic standards alongside a personalised support network and innovative life skills programme with a strong focus on leadership and employability skills to provide students with a truly ‘balanced’ education.

We also believe that studying A-Levels shouldn’t mean you have to give up your other interests; co-curricular activities, including sport, drama, arts, music and outdoor pursuits to name but a few, play a vital role in preparing students for the pressures of the exam room, as well as providing improved wellbeing and mental toughness.

What can Truro School’s Sixth Form do for you?

The aim of the Truro School Sixth Form is to provide students with a balanced and varied education; one that combines a strong academic environment with a caring environment underpinned by a strong support network.

The third ingredient is that we provide amazing opportunities to inspire, cajole and prompt students to make the most of their talents and to develop life skills for the years ahead. Our sixth formers get all the encouragement and support they need to develop self-confidence alongside communication, leadership and employability skills. We have no limits to the expectation we have of them.
