For close on a century and a half, Truro High has been providing top quality education for girls from a wide range of backgrounds in the heart of Cornwall. Each person is different and making the most of that individuality and maximizing potential is what we're all about.

With highly experienced teachers, small class sizes and an ethos that ensures every individual matters, our girls achieve outstanding results – not just in the exam hall but in host of extra-curricular activities including sport, music, drama and the arts. We aim to provide our pupils with a happy, rewarding start in life which creates aspiration, values individuality and develops self-esteem.As a small school there is a warm sense of community here that is clearly visible around our campus. Pupils of all ages mix and interact freely and with confidence – supported and guided by an experienced and very dedicated body of staff, teaching and non-teaching alike. Perhaps it’s the Cornish air, or the friendly yet purposeful approach, but the buzz about the campus is one of happy girls and staff working together to make things happen.We’re truly proud of our community – girls, staff, parents and Governors – we work well together.
