A Truro High School education takes learning and personal development way beyond the classroom. From yoga to elite swimming, creative writing to Greenpower engineering, our extra curricular programme is as broad as it is diverse and it’s the opportunity to try these new experiences that will help your daughter to grow.
New skills and new confidence will come as a result of this wealth of enrichment opportunities. Through them your daughter will discover and develop new talents and become the curious, creative, ambitious and courageous learner we want every student to be.
She can create costumes, play football, construct theatrical sets, design and build cars to race at top tracks around the UK, read ancient Greek, become a published author, gaze at the wonders of the universe through our telescopes or play in the Jazz band.
Some students find themselves spoilt for choice and cram activities into every moment of their school day.
Our Extra-Curricular clubs include choir, LAMDA, ballet, sailing, astronomy, rock climbing, cross country, Greenpower engineering, football, textiles, flute ensemble, surfing, school newspaper, horse riding, science experiments, tap, orchestra, lifeguard qualification training, pottery, cricket, rugby, kayaking, stand-up paddle boarding, origami, athletics, photography, tennis, super orchestra, rounders, baking, Chamber Choir, clarinet ensemble, film making, seismology, private music tuition, survival skills, the Duke of Edinburgh’s Award, acapella choir, debating, hockey, netball, coding, swim squad, drone engineering, creative writing, table tennis, poetry, Ancient Greek GCSE, saxophone ensemble, badminton, music theory, yoga, set design, Young Enterprise, Mandarin, ukulele choir, philosophy, costume design, jazz band and volleyball to name but a few.
As girls progress through the school, the range of activities continues to grow and grow, and they are encouraged to take the lead in the areas they are passionate about. They can become creative leaders in the Gold Arts Award, organise outreach work the school is undertaking in Cambodia, run a student newspaper, qualify to teach English as a foreign language, train as first aiders, canoe through Sweden as part of Gold Duke of Edinburgh and conduct experimental scientific research. The list goes on and the only limit is your daughter’s imagination and aspirations.
The range of activities is considerable and is constantly being reviewed and updated in response to demand. Girls are encouraged to have their say about what’s on offer and to set up clubs and societies to develop their leadership skills too.
