What the school says...
Truro School is a Christian School and we aim to ensure that Christian values permeate school life. We believe a happy and well-ordered atmosphere can best support our pupils against the pressures they will face, and help them to cultivate the self-confidence so crucial in adolescent development.

Good support for new pupils – sixth form prefects look after younger pupils and maps doled out to help them navigate their way round the site. The only improvements year 7s and 8s could think of would be a mini-buggy or ski lift to transport them around the campus...
