With many en suite rooms, comfortable living accommodation and a great family feel, our boarding houses are always popular. A perfect home from home
“In boarding, it is just like a family – we help each other with homework, we hang out together, watch films and go out so it’s very hard to feel lonely.”

Jasmine, Boarder

Boarding at Truro High offers students from all around the world the opportunity to achieve exceptional academic success and grow up in a beautiful part of the world. 

With many en suite bedrooms, exciting weekends out and a great family feel, our two boarding houses are always popular. Whilst small, boarding is at the centre of our community – it is a warm and nurturing environment that offers a real home from home for girls who join us from almost every continent in the world to be part of the Truro High family. 

While many students are day girls, the boarding houses remain very much at the heart of the school. Girls and House Parents eat together in the Dining Hall with a mix of eight different nationalities living and learning side by side. 

“It’s never boring with so many activities. We’re really like a big family and there are always so many sisters round so when you feel homesick or have questions you can just come down and talk to them.”

Lena, Boarder

We don’t see the girls as being from different countries – they are all part of the boarding family and, at school, our students are excited to have friends from all over the world.

Some girls just board occasionally or on weekdays, but the majority choose to stay in school full-time and at the weekends there’s certainly no slowing of the pace. From horse-riding on the beach to paintballing and from ice-skating to climbing, the activities menu is long and tempting and with Cornwall as the backdrop, there’s little wonder they love it so much.
