Creative & Performing Arts at Truro High

It is perhaps no surprise that a school in Cornwall has a strong pedigree in the Creative and Performing Arts.

Creativity is at the heart of learning at Truro High and our excellent reputation in the Arts is well-founded – this year, we were again the biggest prize winner at Falmouth University’s Created Exhibition winning three major awards and sixteen highly commended.

Dance, Drama, Art, Textiles and Music are all taught by specialist teachers throughout the Prep School, Senior School and Sixth Form offering practical and critical learning experiences to inspire imaginations and hone creative skills. The department includes a theatre, state-of-the-art music technology suite, pottery studio, dark room and a dedicated Sixth Form studio that is larger than many undergraduate art spaces.

Performance is a key part of the curriculum, instilling girls of all abilities and ages with the confidence to create, collaborate and take the lead in order to produce highly professional productions. Every year, the school hosts a glittering dance show that involves girls from ages 4 to 18. The annual school production also offers students the chance to take to the stage and has opportunities for student actors, musicians, costume designers, set designers and technical crew.

Extra-curricular opportunities don’t stop here and clubs also include Ukulele band, LAMDA, Photography, private music tuition, animation and many more.

Students are also encouraged to develop their leadership skills in the Creative Arts as part of our Gold, Silver and Bronze Arts Awards.
