Letter sent to parents following bomb hoax

Parents of girls who attend Truro High School for Girls were sent home with a letter today, informing parents of the bomb threat.

Dear Parents,

At 08:10 this morning the School received a telephone call informing us that an explosive device had been placed at the school. We took the decision to evacuate the buildings and await the arrival of the police.

The nursery building was searched first and those children were allowed to return inside along with our own Pre-Prep classes. The older girls were kept warm and dry elsewhere while police teams combed the site, working alongside our own senior staff and estates team.

All buildings were declared safe shortly after 9.30am and the girls were allowed to return to School. Special assemblies were then held to explain the situation to the pupils. Staff are on hand to assist any girls who may have further questions or concerns.

Officers praised the School's response to the call and have advised us that we are one of four schools in Cornwall affected by such calls this morning.

– Dr Glenn Moodie, headmaster
