Prep School

“There’s no such thing as an average school day and it’s certainly not the kind of place where girls are tied to their desks.”

Prep School is such an important time in any child’s life. It’s a time when they learn how learn. From the very youngest age, we aim to prepare girls for life beyond Truro High – to instil in them learning behaviours and attitudes that will stay with them for life.

We take girls from 4 -11 and teach them to think big and to be bold.

As a school, we encourage girls to develop a growth mind-set, to take on a challenge, to build the resilience to cope when things don’t quite go as planned, to have confidence and to take risks in their learning.

The Prep School is like one big family – a place where girls discover the joy of learning and take the first steps towards a bright and exciting future. There’s no such thing as an average school day and it’s certainly not the kind of place where girls are tied to their desks.

Our Prep School is situated on the same site as our Senior School and a wide range of subjects, including PE, Art, Science, Dance, Computing and Modern Languages, are taught by specialists as girls progress through the year groups. Lessons often make use of our specialist teaching facilities including our theatre, sports pitches, science labs, swimming pool and much more.

Whether they are exploring the school grounds in their weekly Outdoor Learning sessions, learning the basics of robotics in the engineering workshop or perfecting their moves in the dance studio, we introduce the girls to a wonderful world of exciting possibilities and watch as the enthusiasm spreads across their faces. Learning here really is a journey.
