The Governors of Bright World partner school, Truro School, were delighted to announce the recent appointment of Andrew Johnson as Head of Truro School, as of September 2020.
Andy, as he prefers to be known, will join Truro School from St Dunstan’s College, a co-educational school in South East London. He has been Deputy Head there since 2015. Prior to that he was the founding Deputy Head of the London Academy of Excellence, a Sixth Form Free School in Newham, East London. He joined LAE from Westminster School, where he had worked for eleven years, including a stint as a Housemaster.
Truro School is based in the South West of England. The school describes itself as a joyful and secure environment where children can thrive, be transformed by what they learn, and develop into well-rounded individuals ready to take their place on the global stage.
The school offers high levels of academic study combined with a broad range of co-curricular opportunities. They believe that education is about so much more than excellent exam results. It is one thing to grasp something intellectually, but real learning takes place when students have time to reflect on their experiences, celebrating both cultural and sporting achievement.
