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..

Year 10 Work Experience, Monday 1st July – Friday 5th July 2019 (inclusive)

Year 10 students will have an opportunity to take part in five days of work experience during the summer term. The work experience programme is a very valuable and enjoyable experience for our students and relies upon students, with parental assistance, finding their own placements. Students should if possible choose a placement which is related to a career they would like to pursue in the future so that they gain a useful insight into what it involves.

Please view the letter and return the consent form by no later than Friday 7 December 2018 below:

Congratulations to our students on the results they have achieved in a year where there have been more changes than ever to GCSE examinations which have undoubtedly become more challenging. We cannot fault their hard work and commitment and thank also all of our staff who have worked with them.

Exam Results

A Level Results

We are very proud of the achievements of our Year 13 students; the 2018 results show clearly their hard work and commitment to their studies. Congratulations go to them, along with thanks to the staff who have worked so hard to support them.


There are many individual successes to celebrate: two students, Tom Cox and Ben Im Thurm, achieved four A* grades, a fantastic achievement. Tom goes to Durham University to study Maths and Ben goes to Bristol University to study Biochemistry.

The grades our students achieved mean they now move on to a range of universities as well as, more than ever before, degree level apprenticeships. We wish them all the very best.

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.

who gave His all

Jesus Christ, Our Lord.
