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 atthe Truro School Sports Day. Please see the weekly school bulletin and posters for details.

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.
