Tate+Co is proud to introduce the designs for Truro School’s new Music & Performance Centre in Cornwall’s capital. The exciting initiative will see the creation of a new multi-million-pound music centre and a refurbished multi-use hall, fostering musical participation, excellence, and inclusion within the school and the broader community.
Scheduled for completion at the start of 2026, the Truro School Music Project will offer state-of-the-art facilities for pupils, the Truro community, and beyond. This project also paves the way for improved facilities to support pupil wellbeing too.
The project aligns with Truro School’s rich musical tradition, which delivers around 40 annual concerts and gigs, an annual Summer Festival, individual music lessons for over 250 pupils, and regular notable multi-show performances of major musicals. The designs will be launched to the community during an event celebrating the importance of music.
Truro School Head, Andy Johnson, commented, “I am proud to be heading a School that embraces the transformative power of music education, investing with prudence and ambition in the cultural enrichment of the School and Cornwall’s wider community.”
Head of Service at Cornwall Music Service Trust (CMST), Gareth Churcher, said, “Cornwall Music Service Trust (CMST) is a charity providing music teaching, support, and therapy for close to 10,000 children across over 240 schools or settings in Cornwall and we see this facility as incredibly important for music education in Cornwall. We are now in our 10th year of operation and are very excited about the tangible opportunities the Music Project will present, providing an efficient and effective environment to facilitate our work as a charity.”
At Tate+Co we have combined our expertise in delivering exceptional teaching spaces at educational institutions, such as Cranleigh School and York St John University, with our experience in delivering high quality buildings Cornwall. We have worked with key local organisations such as the Eden Project and Watergate Bay Hotel to deliver exceptional projects. We look forward to realising Truro School’s new Music & Performance Centre, which will undoubtedly enrich the musical landscape within the school, while simultaneously providing a vibrant musical hub for Truro and Cornwall.
