Sixth Form Open Evening 2017

With exceptional grades of over 40% A*-A at A-Level, find out how Truro School could be the springboard to your successful future at our upcoming open evening.

Your Big Decision

You are about to decide where to study for your A Levels. It’s a big decision: first you need to think about what type of career is best for you, then you want to achieve the best grades.

Truro School has around 200 students studying their A Levels in the Sixth Form – large enough for a diverse community, small enough to be treated like an individual rather than a number. Students in Truro School’s Sixth Form are not only from Cornwall, but the rest of the UK and overseas as well.

The Open Evening on 27 September, 5pm to 7:30pm

Arrivals on the Open Evening are flexible, however it is recommended that you turn up no later than 6:00pm to give you enough time to get a real taste of what Truro School Sixth Form has to offer. Advanced bookings are not required.

There will be the opportunity to visit each department, where the Head of Department will be giving a presentation on their subject and will be happy to answer any questions you have. Take the opportunity to see what sort of thing you could expect from life at Truro School’s Sixth Form and talk to current students in a relaxed environment.

Headmaster Andrew Gordon-Brown will be giving a welcome talk at 6pm alongside the Co-Heads of Sixth Form (Lucy Jupp and Jane Rainbow) and the Head Boy and Head Girl who will be talking about their experience of life at Truro School. The talk will be repeated again at 7pm.

Free parking will be available as well as food and refreshments in the Cafe.
