Readers of the West Briton will have seen the new 2016 school league table shared in last week’s paper.
Here is what Headmaster Andrew Gordon-Brown had to say following the updated league tables in his latest blog:
If you have a chance this weekend glance through the West Briton, where you will see the A Level league tables which clearly show Truro School as the most successful provider of A Levels in the county.
You will probably also know that I don’t place much store on league tables in the first place – they don’t measure any of the intangible benefits of a great education. But as a staunch supporter of all things Truro School, it is gratifying to see the press acknowledging our place in the delivery of Cornish post-16 education.
