All of our new boarders arrive a few days before starting school to settle into their new home and get to know each other a little better. During this time, there is a full programme of organised activity from local treasure hunts to beach trips, all designed to prepare girls to start the term confident and comfortable in their new school.
We are extremely privileged to have a hard working and expert board of governors, who offer support, guidance and a friendly face to our community’s team of academics.
The Governing Body at Truro High School meets at least once a term with sub-committees for Child Protection & Safeguarding, Education & Pastoral, Finance & School and Governance & Nominations meeting in advance. The agendas will vary from meeting to meeting but there are common features including the Headmaster’s Report and full reports from the chairs of the sub committees. The meetings will also refer to academic and pastoral issues that require review.
Year 7 & 8 will be heading to Porthpean Outdoor Education Centre for a jam-packed couple of days, full of fun activities and incredible adventures. We aim to inspire, motivate and challenge our girls to break out of their comfort zone, build their confidence and support their independence. Each day will bring a new adventure and the chance to try something new with the encouragement of their friends.
Exciting activities include open canoeing, archery, sea kayaking, rock climbing and much more.
Following their impressive debut in the season’s inaugural race at the world famous circuit at Goodwood, Truro High’s Greenpower Race team will spend an exhilarating weekend speeding round the track at the Castle Combe Circuit. The team started the season in style over the summer and currently two of the cars lie within the top 150 in the country.
Following some hard work in the workshop over the summer holidays, the senior team’s five strong fleet will again be flying round the track much to the delight of their proud makers.
Our girls work incredibly hard on the project and special thanks must go to Head of STEM Mr Dean and his team of volunteers who give hour after hour to ensure the team is always ready to hit the track.
