Truro High School has long been regarded as one of the top girls’ private schools in the UK and, founded in 1880, has a long and proud tradition of academic excellence and superb pastoral care.
Situated in the heart of Cornwall, with easy access to beautiful beaches and stunning coastal scenery, it offers top quality independent education in an exceptional setting.
With highly experienced teachers, small class sizes and an ethos that ensures every individual matters, its girls achieve outstanding results – not just academically but in a host of extra-curricular activities including sport, music, drama, Greenpower car racing and the arts too.
We take girls – on a day, boarding or flexi-boarding basis - in our Prep School, Senior School and Sixth Form. Based on a single campus, we aim to provide our pupils with a happy, rewarding start in life that creates aspiration, values individuality and develops self-esteem.
Our pupils travel from all across the world to be a part of this very special community and we make sure that at the weekends they get out to experience the very best that Cornwall has to offer with fabulous trips to the beach, to galleries, to try out local watersports and to visit some of the region’s bigger cities.
International students study towards a pass at ‘First Certificate English’ and GCSE English in Year 11. When girls first join the school they are assessed and EFL lessons are scheduled to provide support at the correct level.
In general, girls will receive timetabled group lessons during Modern Foreign Languages / Religious Philosophy lessons.
