Director of Admissions & Development
I joined Truro School in September 1992 and have been here ever since, welcoming new students to the school through Admissions and, most recently, leading the Development and Alumni Relations Office. It is such a pleasure to meet more and more of our Alumni bringing their children back to school to follow in their footsteps, although rather disconcerting that I remember so many of the parents as students! My two children are now Alumni (CO14 and CO16) and have fantastic friendships and memories of their time at Truro School.
Development Office Manager
Since joining Truro School in March 2016 I have had the pleasure of meeting many Alumni and corresponding with many more. I have thoroughly enjoyed every minute. I moved to Cornwall in 2003 and have since married a Cornish Farmer, who’s family farms are located on the Roseland Peninsula. My husband, and (late) father-in law, both attended Truro School as did my son who left sixth form in 2014, completing 7 very happy years at the School. As a result of my family ties I feel very connected to both the Cornish Farming Community and the Truro School Community. I have a personal passion for the Foundation, as my son was lucky enough to benefit from a Means Tested Bursary and so I have a great desire to see the Foundation move from strength to strength in order to help more young people gain access to all that a Truro School education has to offer.
Communications & Development Assistant
I joined Truro School in January 2017, so am the newest member of the Development Team. Before my role at Truro School I worked as a fundraiser for the environmental charity Surfers Against Sewage, so bring with me knowledge of the third sector and fundraising in particular. I was born in Cornwall and also went to School in Cornwall so I possess a good understanding of the Cornish Community. Since Starting in the Development office I have been enjoying getting to know our Alumni through finding out all their news to report in the online newsletter every month; it’s a joy to hear how their lives are panning out and what they have gone on to achieve after leaving Truro School.
I’ve been looking after the school archive since January 2003. I grew up in Cornwall and went to Truro High School before studying History, firstly at Royal Holloway and then at Exeter University. My interest in local history has led to various projects including researching and writing about Trerice and its owners, the Cornwall Music Festival and Truro School.
