19 October 2009 / Former Pupils At School's Sixth Form Event
All four talked about their time at Truro High and the positive impact their experiences there had had upon their lives.
'I've got very happy, fond memories of the school,' said Poppy Roberts. 'The pastoral care was excellent.'
Emma Heller explained that she was torn between doing Physiotherapy as a degree course and going to agricultural college.
'I was advised to follow my heart which I did,' she said. 'It was exactly the right thing to do and I couldn't be more grateful.'
Emma Green told the audience that the school's sixth form tutors had always been very supportive.
'They encouraged me to be independent and self-motivated,' she said. 'Those skills really helped me when I went on to study medicine.'
Nicola Wright, who was awarded a music scholarship in the Sixth Form, agreed. 'I couldn't have achieved all that I have without the school,' she said. 'I got so much encouragement and support.'
Following presentations by Headmistress Caroline Pascoe, Deb Freeman, the school's new Head of Sixth Form, and three current pupils, visitors were given an opportunity of chatting to teachers and finding out more about the A level subjects on offer. This year, Truro High achieved a 100% pass rate at A level with 67% at A and B grades and 89% at A to C.
