The Friends of Truro School (FTS) is designed to bring the strong and inclusive community of Truro School and Truro Prep School parents, pupils and teachers together.


All parents and/or guardians of pupils at Truro School & Truro Prep are full members of the FTS. The FTS organises regular events at the Prep and Truro School – past events include the Quiz and Curry night, the Fun Triathlon, the Christmas and Summer Fairs and the Cream Tea Stall at Truro School Sports Day. Please see the weekly school newsletter, posters and the FTS page of the school website  – look under the Community tab.

The FTS works to enrich our children’s school experience, strengthen the school community, raise funds to help enhance the facilities of the school and ensure that our children get the most out of their time here.

Thank you very much for your support and we look forward to seeing you at events around the school.

Truro Prep Summer Fair

Saturday 17 June 2017

It was a sweltering day, but it didn’t stop the crowds flocking to the Mad Hatters Tea Party. Themed side stalls, face painting, a hat parade, sizzling sausages and the samba band all contributed to a very special day. A big thank you to everyone who came, helped, or contributed their time. The new gazebos in house colours were on full display and were much needed in the heat.

FTS Barn Dance – 24 March 2017

Friends and family of Truro School were invited to don their checked shirts and straw hats for a Barn Dance on Friday 24 March. With our very own Mr MacQuarrie and his band providing the lively music, there was plenty of ‘Do-Si-Do’ing!

Thank you to everyone who came and made it such a wonderful atmosphere on the evening.

See the images from the Barn Dance here. 

FTS Christmas Fair – 9 December 2016

The annual Friends of Truro School (FTS) Christmas Fair took place this Friday at the Prep and it was another special occasion; Father Christmas visited with his (very real) reindeer! There were a wide range of activities for all to enjoy including lucky dips; make your own Christingles; a raffle; toy and book stalls, and a photo booth. It was a lovely family atmosphere and the children all had a great time. Money raised this year will go to Children’s Hospice South West.
