Advice and Encouragement

At Truro School, we take pride in the academic record of our students. Not only are their examination results consistently high, but the overwhelming majority move on to succeed in Higher Education, including at the most selective universities.

While these achievements are in no small part down to our Sixth Form students’ positive attitude to their work, we have also earned a reputation for the outstanding quality of our advice and encouragement.

Superb Support

Truro School Sixth Form offers superb levels of support, both in and out of the classroom. Small class sizes, clinics and excellent teaching maintain an environment where each student is able to be the best that they can be academically, whilst a proactive approach to tracking, monitoring and communications provides a safety-net for all our students.

Community Ethos

The Truro School Community is a thriving and supportive network of past and present students, parents, staff and governors working together to offer students life-changing opportunities. A professional and social network, we encourage every member of the Sixth Form to enjoy and benefit from their association with the Truro School Community through diverse events, invaluable careers support, guidance and mentoring opportunities, including personalised careers and university services and The Medical Pathways Programme.

Greater Independence

Developing a healthy work-life balance is an essential ingredient to success at A-Level and beyond.

In the Lower Sixth, students are able to utilise their greater independence and make the most of private study periods with spaces on campus specifically for the Sixth Form: Sixth Form Café, Sixth Form Common Room, ICT suite and Sixth Form Study Area. Students may also make use of the Sir Ben Ainslie Sports Centre’s gym.

Throughout the Upper Sixth, if on track, students can gain additional independence. You can leave campus or sign out in the afternoon if you have no further commitments that day. There is also a designated Sixth Form parking area.

The Truro School Identity

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.
