School News

The last day of school this term will be Thursday 20th December.  As usual at Christmas, the school day will finish at the earlier time of 1pm and normal school buses will be leaving school at that time.
Our last day will be a non-uniform day in aid of Truro Foodbank. Any student wishing to wear their own clothes next Thursday will need to bring in either a £1 donation or an item for the foodbank. Please follow this link to see what items the foodbank is in currently most in need of:  https://truro.foodbank.org.uk/give-help/donate-food/
Richard Lander wishes all of our parents, carers and students a restful holiday, and welcomes students back to school on Monday 7th January.
