WELCOME TO TRINITY SCHOOL
We hope that this website helps you to gain a picture of our life and work in our school. We think that what you will see is a vibrant and thriving community, with a strong sense of common purpose. Although we are a large school – which allows us to offer a wide range of courses and activities – we try to behave as if we were a very small one, with a ‘village’ feel and a big emphasis on the unique importance of each individual.
A positive and secure place to learn and to work, where there is a mutual respect among us all; A place of high expectations and high standards; A place of learning, where the learners are active and increasingly independent; A place which seeks to educate the whole person; A school in which every lesson is a good lesson.
Trinity School has a long history: in 685 there was a school in Carlisle for Christians founded by St Cuthbert. It wasn’t Trinity, of course, but the plaque by the door of the Carliol building notes the tradition of learning, based on Christian teaching, which was established all those years ago.
Trinity also has a short history: in 1968, it was formed when the Creighton and Margaret Sewell School joined with the Carlisle Grammar School. Even since then, there have been substantial changes to the buildings, and to our character, as we have become a Language College and the focus for Adult Education in the city.
There are more pupils in Trinity School now than ever; there are more adults on our Continuing Education courses than ever. Size brings with it great opportunities, for the range of subjects and activities that we can offer. It also brings home to us the importance of looking after each individual student, from the day of arrival. We do a great deal to make sure that each student does as well as she/he can.
This means that we monitor and encourage progress closely, and make sure that the partnership between the school and home works effectively. It is the cornerstone of our work. We take it as a privilege and solemn duty to look after and to educate the young people in our care.
We are therefore committed to simple policies – for example, there should be no bullying whatsoever in the school. If there is, we shall act quickly to put it right. We are committed to there being no drugs in the school - if a student does bring such in to school, then they will be expelled. We aim to be a happy and safe environment for all.
We are proud of what we have achieved so far. We know how important it is that we continue to provide the best possible service that we can. We look forward to our partnership with you in the coming years.
