Bosvigo School
Chapel Hill, TR1 3BJ, UK Truro
Tel. 01872 274034

Bosvigo School is a Group 2 School and has approximately 290 children on roll. It is one of five Schools in the Truro City area and is the School situated within sight of Truro Cathedral and a stone’s throw from the station.


It is a compact site which has been developed in stages since it was originally built in January 1898. The ‘Main Block’ (1898) is a two storey building with five classrooms, a Learning Support Room, stock room and toilets. The ‘The Sixties Block’ (1960’s) is a flat roofed structure which has the Early Years area – two classrooms, activity area and toilets - library/computer suite, hall and toilets. There is attached a kitchen where meals are prepared and eaten in the adjacent hall.


The ‘Single Classroom’ (1953) is a concrete building, with its own toilet block, which is connected to the main school by a covered walkway. The ‘Kitchen’ (1930’s) was the old kitchen area and now houses our staffroom.


The ‘New Block’ (2002), houses two classrooms, our reception area, offices, toilets and connecting corridors to other parts of the school. There are three playgrounds: One for our Early Years children at the front of the school. (Connected to it is a covered area that enables its use at all times). Another play area is for the KS1 children and another used by the older children.


There is a small field on site which will be used for games and at playtimes, when weather permits. The school has the use of a nearby field which is used for football and other games needing more space. Visitors and the youngest children use the main entrance in to school which is through the car park. Entry is accessed through the security gate. All other children use the Chapel Hill gate at the beginning and end of every day. During the day this gate is kept locked.


During the Autumn term we were visited by Christine Mackness who is the Investors in People Assessor for 'Quality South West'.

She reviewed work going on in the school by looking at materials and
meeting with representatives of the staff.

At the end of her visit she felt that-with progress that had been made by
the school over the last year; with comments and observations made by
staff; and with systems in place for the future development of the
school - she would recommend that we had achieved the criterion laid
down to meet the 'Investors in People' standard.

From 4th December we have formally been informed that Bosvigo
School has been awarded the 'Investors in People' Status.

This award recognises the continued development of the work of the
school and the continued commitment of the staff to provide the best op
portunities that we can.

All staff contribute to the development of the school and it is a compli-
ment that others recognise that fact in such a prestigious way.

My congratulations go to all the Staff of the school.

The School Secretary, with support from F.O.B.S.A., (the Friends Of Bosvigo School Association), is responsible for the items we sell. Regular orders are made and all enquiries should be directed to her. There is also a selection of second hand uniform available for sale.

Please NAME ALL OF YOUR CHILD’S BELONGINGS, so that they can be returned easily if they are lost. The P.E. kit in a draw string bag makes it is easy to take home at the weekend for washing.

For Health and Safety reasons we ask parents to ensure that children do not wear necklaces and that earrings are stud type only. We also ask that children only bring watches to school when they are in Years 5 and 6. For playtimes, many children bring toys to school.

This is acceptable providing they are small, can fit into a bag easily and are the responsibility of the child. We would anticipate that parents would not allow their child to bring toy guns and knives to school.

We would also ask that no mobile phones are brought to school.
