Truro High one of the most affordable and best Boarding Schools in the country

Truro High School is one of the top fifty girls boarding schools in the country and is the second least expensive according to the best-schools website which aims to help parents looking for independent education in the UK.

Based on A Level results, Truro High ranks 44th on the site’s best girls’ boarding schools list and has earned a certificate for that achievement. The league table also includes boarding and day fees and, with brand new en suite boarding facilities, academic excellence and an enviable location in the heart of Cornwall, it emerges as one of the top three offering best value.

“We’re very pleased that the high grades achieved by our sixth formers have placed us in the top 50 girls’ boarding schools and delighted that, at the same time, our fees are low compared to the vast majority,” said Headmistress Caroline Pascoe. “We know that 2011 is going to prove financially challenging for many people so we are keeping our costs as competitive as possible.

“There is nothing more valuable than a good education – not just in terms of academic results but in the personal confidence, motivation and work ethic it inspires. We are a small, happy school where every individual counts. Our girls leave us as rounded human beings ready to take their place in the world and do well in whatever career or life direction they choose. This latest accolade is testament to their achievement – as well as the achievement of our wonderful, dedicated team of staff.”
