Pupils, students and parents from the 3rd, 4th, 5th and Sixth Forms are invited to attend the event which will provide pupils and students with the opportunity to talk to professionals from a wide range of industries including engineering, medicine, accountancy, graphic design and software programming, plus many more.
This year’s Careers Convention will take place in the Assembly Hall at Truro School on Wednesday 18 March, 4.00pm – 7.00pm. Our aim is to provide an opportunity for students from the 3rd Year through to the Sixth Form to meet a range of professionals working in a wide variety of careers.
Our keynote address, in the Burrell Theatre, will be delivered by Simon Haines (CO89), Founder and CEO of London firm, Simply Get Results Ltd; with 25 years of international experience advising global corporations on how to be more successful, we are delighted that he has agreed to talk about ‘The Workplace of Tomorrow’. This invaluable session will be repeated twice to ensure all students and parents are afforded the opportunity to attend (4.00 to 4.30pm and again 6.15 to 6.45pm).
For the first time we are also incorporating six breakout sessions/workshops for 5th year and Lower Sixth students at Truro School, each delivered by experts in their respective fields. These will enable students and parents to ask further questions about specific areas such as STEM based careers (Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths), apprenticeships, creative industries and careers in medicine or law, and for those students with their hearts set on a future in London, we are thrilled to welcome Matt Begley (parent of alumni) from Harris Begley Financial Planning and Graham Hooper (parent of alumni) to share their insights about ‘Careers in the City’. These sessions have limited space, so please encourage your son/daughter to sign up as soon as possible, so as not to be disappointed. They can do this by speaking to their form tutor.
This year we have again created a dedicated area to showcase some of the major growth industries such as STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths) and those outlined in the Government’s Industrial Plan which links closely to Cornwall’s Strategic Economic Plan. These areas in particular offer some fantastic employment opportunities for graduates and school leavers, often in emerging industries.
Our region’s Strategic Economic Plan focuses on two broad clusters of advanced engineering (including agritech, aerospace, spacetech, marinetech and renewable energy), and digital innovation (including creativetech, low carbon living, and healthtech).
STEM subjects of science, technology, engineering and maths have long been areas with huge opportunities for graduates and school leavers
At Truro School we are passionate about providing our students with opportunities to encounter professionals from a range of industries, and ensuring that they leave Truro School well prepared for the ever changing and competitive job market.
We very much hope you will be able to join us for the evening.
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, nurtures 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, 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.
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.
