WELCOME TO TRINITY SCHOOL

Welcome to Trinity School’s website; thank you for visiting us. We hope that this website helps you to gain a clear picture of 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 and a consistent focus on high standards.

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. We make no apology for our focus on high standards as we want the best for every one of our students: we insist on high standards in approach to learning and in behaviour. We work to offer a high standard of education and of pastoral care. We encourage responsibility, both for self and for others. Each student is encouraged to take responsibility for their own learning, and to be responsible in the way they treat others, both in school and in the world beyond school. Responsibility and care for others reflects the Christian ethos of our school.

We also seek to provide wide ranging opportunities both within the curriculum we offer and in activities beyond the curriculum so that we educate the whole person and prepare our students well for life..

Student Testing Information

Dear Parent/Carer

It has been confirmed that any student who has tested positive in the last 90 days should not have their LFD test at school at the start of term.  Instead, they should resume their twice weekly tests at home as soon as they can.  If you had given permission and your child was coming to school for the test there is now no need to come.  You do not need to let us know in advance.  Students in Year 7 and 12 should attend for photographs and biometrics as stated in the letter sent last week even if they are not having the test.  Students who are coming for a test should  bring a face covering to wear in the test centre.

Many thanks.

Trinity School

Dear Students, Parents and Carers
 
I hope you have a good enjoyable summer break are looking forward to the start of term.  I thought it might be helpful if you had some useful information prior to next week.  
 
Please refer to the letter Ms Hawkin sent out recently with regards to the dates for Covid testing.  It is really important that consent is given, please see Ms Hawkin's letter with regards to this.  Please note times for photos and biometrics on Thursday 2nd September.
 
The Year 12 Induction sessions will take place on Friday 3rd September from 9.30am until 2pm, please note a change to the finishing time.  During these sessions students will receive information about our expectations, how the 6th form operates as well other key bits of information and timetables etc.  There is also an opportunity to meet form groups.  There will be no subject lessons during this day.
 
Normal lessons will start on Tuesday 7th September.  Students need to be in school for 8.25am at the latest as lessons start at 8.30am.  Lessons finish at 3.05pm.
 
Other useful information.
  • Students can change subjects until Tuesday 28th September.  Following this student's must continue with all subjects during their 2 years in the Sixth Form.  Please note staff will assess students with in-class assessments during the first 3 weeks in September.  We may require students to change subjects where significant concerns are raised.
  • The Year 12 Tutor Evening will take place on Thursday 23rd September.  This is an opportunity for parents and carers to discuss how students have settled into the sixth form with form tutors.
  • The Year 12 Parents Evening will take place on Thursday 14th July.  This is an opportunity for parents and carers to discuss student progress with subject staff.

  • There is no uniform in the Sixth Form, but we do have a dress code, more information on this will be given during the induction sessions.  To help with a positive start to term, smart casual means;  jeans, hoodies, jumpers, polo shirts, t-shirts, blouse, appropriate knee length skirts etc are all fine.  We do not allow cropped tops, t-shirts with offensive slogans, ripped jeans, joggers or hair colours that have been dyed an unnatural shade e.g orange, blue, green etc.
  • Mobile phones should remain in bags during all lessons and private study sessions unless the member staff gives permission.  Students can use mobile phones at break and lunch time.  Please note this is different from the approach in the 11-16 part of the school.

  • Students should bring a folder with a pencil case with the usual equipment with them.  A pad of lined paper is also useful, but staff will provide paper where appropriate.
  • Timetables will be given out at the start of term.  Please note that we will need to adapt timetables during the first half term to add private study session or enrichment activities.  Therefore, please do not book fixed times for driving lessons etc during school hours.
