Come and have coffee with the school chaplain, see some examples of what we do in Thought for the Day, share ideas and have the option of taking part in prayer for the life of the school. All welcome.
You do not need to be a church goer, or committed to any faith. It would be lovely to meet you.
At the end of the Summer term, students from Trinity School worked on creating poems based on the theme of ‘Water’. Many of our students entered the competition and we displayed much of their work in the Jubilee Entrance hall to the school. 11 candidates were selected to go forward into the Borderline Poetry competition, which was judged in October. Excitingly, we heard from the competition judges, and 6 of our students had been selected as winners and runners up of the competition!
The presentation event was held in the Fratry at Carlisle Cathedral, on Saturday the 8th of October at 7.30, and our students were there to represent Trinity. Each of the finalists recited their poem to the audience, who were very appreciative of the talents displayed! The winners received generous cash prizes for their efforts!
We are delighted with the result and would like to thank Borderlines Book Festival for running the competition, and for the great opportunity.
Three of the Borderlines Committee judged your students’ poems and the finalists (in random order) are as follows:
Yrs 7-9 –
1st – Emma Dawson-Hendy – ‘The Power of Water’ (£50)
2nd – Millie Butcher – ‘The Kettle’ (£25)
3rd – Kitty Armstrong – ‘I am Water’ (£15)
1st – Amy Huddart – ‘What Night Brought’ (£50)
2nd – Jenna Howes – ‘Misplaced’ (£25)
3rd – Katie Evans – ‘Solid Depths’ (£15)
The 2016 World challenge expedition has just returned from an amazing experience in Southern India. The 13 sixth form students travelled with Mr Sadler and Miss Ashton to Cochin.
The group planned and undertook a trek through the Western Ghats mountain range before working with a primary school in Alleppi where we built a playground as well as teaching maths, country dancing and singing. After our hard work we had a final two days in a colonial hotel overlooking the backwaters of the Arabian sea where we kayaked and took a long ferry trip to the nearest town and back. The entire experience was amazing for all concerned and our group of students were inspirational in leadership, camaraderie and interacting with people from a completely different culture. We learnt so much and will remember it for ever.
The school is undertaking a World Challenge venture in 2018 please see Mr Winter for details.
Students need to bring pens (black, red, blue and green biro) pencils, a ruler, a rubber, a protractor and a pair of compasses. They will also need a calculator for every maths and science lesson. Highlighter pens are particularly useful for revision.
Please ensure that your son/daughter has the correct equipment. Thank you.
We were delighted to welcome Nicky Morgan, Secretary of State for Education, to Trinity School on 7th January, along with our local MP John Stevenson. The Secretary of State came to see for herself the extent of the damage caused to our school by Storm Desmond. She spent time talking to staff and students about the ongoing difficulties caused by the floods as well as listening to our hopes for the future.
For more news of the progress we have made please read our letter to parents and carers below:
First week back letter (pdf)
“All staff share the co-headteachers’ and governors’ determination that the school will offer the best provision possible to students.”
“Safeguarding arrangements are exemplary. Leaders and all staff go beyond their roles to ensure that all students are safe and well cared for.”
“The behaviour of students is good. The vast majority of students have positive attitudes to learning and are keen to do well”
“The Sixth Form has gone from strength to strength and is now outstanding”
“The school is improving rapidly.”
To read the letter and full report…
At Trinity School we believe that reading is a passport to the world. The benefits of reading go beyond the opportunities offered by being well-read with a good command of English. Reading great literature opens children up to ideas, experiences, places and times they might never otherwise experience in real life. Reading for pleasure gives opportunities to learn about a multitude of things that cannot be covered by a school curriculum.
Also because parents are the most important reading role models for children and young people, all the family should put reading on the agenda too!
1. How can I help to encourage my child to read more?
For more advice and information download the Parental Literacy Support Booklet:Parental Literacy Support Booklet
2. Where can I get help to find great books for my child?
We have compiled reading lists for different year groups, different genre and themes. Students can use these to find books that they will enjoy. Many of the books are in the school library. Please feel free to contact the librarians if you need further help.
3. What is Accelerated reading (AR)?
All Year 7 and 8 take part in the AR reading scheme. Visit here for further information about AR and to download an introduction for parents.
You can also search for books that are in the scheme by going to www.arbookfind.co.uk and this is a good way to find some great books to read.
4. How do I order books from the Scholastic book club?
The librarians run the Scholastic book club throughout the year and you’ll receive information about each club via ParentComms. The scheme allows you to purchase discounted books online for free delivery to school. There is always a great selection of books and good ideas for that next great read.
