One of the main roles of Truro School Sixth Form is to set students up for the rest of their lives; working with our thriving and supportive community we have developed Truro School Connected.
A professional and social network of past and present students, parents, staff and governors working together to offer students life-changing opportunities, Truro School Connected encourages every member of the Sixth Form to enjoy and benefit from their association with the Truro School Community.
Sixth Form students may benefit from:
Gain insight into your preferred employment sector and develop personal networks
Gain more experience ready for university and/or employment interviews
Spend time with a professional gaining a brilliant insight into that particular job role or sector of employment
Hear from those at different points of the career ladder, just setting out and those who have years of experience
Have your CV checked by those recruiting into your chosen career path
Many alumni return to visit the Sixth Form, ready to inspire our current students through talks and workshops, often offering personalised advice whilst here. Our alumni also play an essential role in delivering our Medical Pathways Programme.
Truro School Connected is as important in shaping the achievements of our younger alumni as it is in helping them towards their next steps at 18. Recent alumni are encouraged to make use of Truro School Connected through the Development Office and are invited to Networking events in London and Bristol. These play an essential role in bringing members of our community together and provide a platform for professional and social networking long after a student has left the Sixth Form.
Our school motto, Esse Quam Videri, (to be rather than to seem to be) captures the essence of our identity. From Nursery right through to Sixth Form the Truro School Community shares the same values and approach to education which help to shape our identity. Underpinned by strong Christian principles, we are a caring and inclusive community which values and develops each individual. Click on the links below to find out more.
DEVELOPING INDIVIDUAL EXCELLENCE AT EVERY LEVEL
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.
To inspire creativity, ignite imaginations and help each pupil to find and fully develop his or her talents.
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.
DEVELOPING PUPILS WHO ARE AT EASE WITH THEMSELVES AND EACH OTHER
Because we want every pupil to be comfortable in their own skin, celebrating the uniqueness of each individual in the school community. Through drama, debating and public speaking, as well as creating their own assemblies and appearing in concerts, pupils learn key communication skills and gain the confidence to prosper in the real world.
To forge pupil characters and ambition through challenges and opportunities.
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.
DEVELOPING STUDENTS WHO RESPECT OTHER PEOPLE AND THE WORLD AROUND THEM
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.
ENCOURAGING PUPILS TO DEVELOP THEIR OWN WAY OF THINKING
Because we encourage pupils towards a personally developed life philosophy. Underlying all that we do is a solid foundation based on the ethos and values of Christianity. We nurture and challenge each individual child in a caring environment that is inclusive, enjoys the diversity within our School Community and beyond, and supports a genuine desire to question what we see and what we know.
