Head PhotoAt Truro School we love the fact that 80% of our county is surrounded by sea and we encourage our pupils to take full advantage of Cornwall's 300 mile section of coastline whether surfing on its sandy beaches, sailing on its sheltered estuaries, walking its dramatic headlands and moorlands, or exploring its many geological features.
We believe that education is about so much more than excellent exam results, as important as these are. It is one thing to grasp something intellectually, but real learning takes place when students have time to reflect on their experiences. Our home in the South West of England is a joyful and secure place where children can grow roots, are transformed by what they learn, in order to develop wings to fly as global citizens.

Our mission is to be a beacon of inclusive excellence developing confident, tolerant and enthusiastic young people who enjoy working with others and are ready to influence the world. The mothers and fathers of around 1000 children have entrusted us to ensure that their sons and daughters get the best possible education. We offer high levels of academic study combined with a broad range of co-curricular opportunities, celebrating both cultural and sporting achievement.
Truro School is a place characterised by constructive and trusting relationships, a place where talented and dedicated teachers accompany pupils as individuals on this leg of their journey. We also aspire to be an organisation that learns, in self-critical pursuit of our goal to offer a creative, innovative and progressive education.

Do follow us online for constantly updated information about our pupils' activities and successes. Most of all, please come and visit us where you will be warmly welcomed.
