Info about Trinity Sixth Form Centre

Trinity Sixth Form Centre is a successful, creative and lively learning environment; it is a great place to study and progress to higher education or employment. With around 360 students, Trinity Sixth Form is one of the largest in Cumbria attracting many students from other local schools and even further afield.

We currently offer students a choice of A Levels and Level 3 BTEC courses. We offer a broad range of A Level courses from Chemistry to Law as well as a range of vocational qualifications including Business and Science. This allows us to personalise our curriculum for the needs of each individual student.

Trinity Sixth Form students have an outstanding choice of many extra-curricular activities to get involved with, including: The Duke of Edinburgh Award Scheme, Trinity Theatre Company, Sport, Debating, Young Enterprise and international visits to Europe and India – there are many opportunities for students to enjoy and build their skills outside of the classroom.

We have excellent pastoral care and facilities. Sixth Form students have their own dedicated team of pastoral support staff who provide guidance for all students in the Sixth Form. Each student belongs to a tutor group made up of approximately 25 students. Form Tutors work individually with students to support their learning and monitor their progress by having regular interviews and mentoring sessions. In addition, each student is supported by a Pastoral Tutor, who is there to oversee this process, and an Information, Advice and Guidance Officer who also helps point students in the right direction.

Students in the Sixth Form have access to superb facilities. These include well equipped science labs, high specification ICT rooms, large music and drama studios and a recording studio. In addition to all this the Sixth Form Centre has its own dedicated building, the Carliol Building, which has also recently upgraded to include a modern Bistro and access to ICT equipment and study areas.

For more information, or if you would like to arrange a tour of our excellent Sixth Form facilities, please contact the Sixth Form Team 01228 516051 ext 263 or email
