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..

Year 7 Cathedral Visit and Service of Welcome

Cathedral Visit

On Monday 10th and 24th September and 9th October Year 7 will be going, in their forms, on an educational visit to Carlisle Cathedral. As a Church School, our link with the Cathedral is important. This is where we hold our Carol Service and our Graduation Evenings at the end of Years 11 and 13. It is a place we encourage our students to get to know and to use for themselves as they grow and develop. The Year 7 visit provides some background to the history of the Cathedral as well as an introduction to the idea of prayer.

Please read the letter below for more information:

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.

Lunch time arrangements and end of school day

Proposed change to lunch time arrangements and end of school day

As you will be aware the school has grown in size over the last four years due to a high demand for places; successful appeals for admission in 2014 created an extra form of entry which has continued each year since then. The school building was designed for 1500 students and currently we have just over 1700. One of the consequences of this is pressure on our dining facilities; there are lengthy queues to use these and they are crowded. We are very conscious that lunchtimes are not the most pleasant experience for students......

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.
