STAFF

Trinity School is able to attract and retain a staff of very high quality as a result of the fine reputation of the school and of the professional opportunities it can offer. Most teachers are graduates in their teaching subjects, some with wide experience including teaching abroad, and all have a real commitment to their work. All of our staff are involved in continuing professional development to enrich their professional knowledge and to ensure best practice in improving student learning. Additionally, many are active in the local community, whether as preachers or councillors, or in sport, the Church and fund-raising for charities. Our PE staff are active participants in sport themselves, and our musicians have considerable reputations locally.

Many staff bring wide experience to bear in their work, having come from a background of industry, commerce or the arts. It is worth noting that many staff are themselves parents of children attending Trinity. As well as our teaching staff, we have a team of knowledgeable and experienced support staff, fulfilling an increasing variety of roles, including House Tutors, Curriculum Support and Cover Supervisors.

All staff are represented on ‘Team Trinity’, a group which works hard to improve the working environment and organise social events.

If you would be interested in bringing your experience and skills to work for the school community, please watch out for advertisements on our Job Vacancies Page and in the local press.

MODERN FOREIGN LANGUAGES - DICTIONARIES

Dear Parent/Carer,

We are very much looking forward to your child being as successful as they can in their language learning this year.

These can be purchased in most book shops or online and ideally should have a verb section.

We wish them well in their future language learning.

Co-Headteachers' Message

Welcome to Trinity School.

We are proud to serve as Co-Headteachers of Trinity School and to work in the service of this school community. It is a place of high standards, underpinned by distinctive Christian values. Responsibility for self and others is encouraged, and there are superb opportunities for all of our students to achieve very well indeed. Students are at the heart of all that we do at Trinity: their achievements academically, of course, but also their well-being and their wider development as well rounded individuals.

We offer a broad range of curriculum choices and wider activities and visits, because we are a large and popular school. However, we try to behave as if we were a small village school where every individual is well known, supported and encouraged.

We aim to make a difference to young people’s lives, to develop an awareness and respect for spiritual and moral values, so that they, in turn, can enrich the lives of others. We want our students to leave us with the values, knowledge and skills to lead a full and fulfilling life.

Literacy and Progress

Literacy and Progress

It is vitally important for all our students to make progress in English and Mathematics.

To this end, we regularly monitor progress, and use a wide range of intervention strategies to help students achieve their full potential. It is very common for students to have some type of intervention or 'booster' lessons at some point during their time at Trinity School, regardless of their ability level.
