A Church of England 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..

A Welcome from the Headteacher

Dear Parent/Carer

It is a privilege to be able to write to you in my first term as Headteacher of Trinity School. I am looking forward to working with you and meeting you at our regular parents’ evenings and events.

Ms Jo Hawkin - Headteacher

I offer a warm welcome to the parents/carers of our new Year 7 students and look forward to officially welcoming you to the Trinity community at our Year 7 Information Evening next week. A separate letter has gone out inviting you to this event. Welcome, too, to those joining us from other schools in Year 12. Mr. Winter, Assistant Head and Head of Sixth Form, will be meeting you at the Year 12 Information and Tutor Evening on 25th September. Both year groups have settled well, with 100% attendance in Year 7 on their first day. They are finding their way around, are making new friends and seem happy. Year 12 have been involved in a three-day induction programme which involved a variety of activities: first aid training, road safety awareness, teambuilding and sessions designed to set them up effectively for their academic studies that start on Monday. All are raring to go.

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.
