TRINITY SIXTH FORM CENTRE

Information for Year 11 students joining our Sixth Form in September

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 330 students, Trinity Sixth Form is one of the largest in Cumbria attracting many students from other local schools and even further afield. In May 2015 Ofsted rated the Sixth Form as ‘Outstanding’; this is a tribute to the excellent work being done by both students and staff.

Our results are also excellent. The summer 2015 and 2016 exam results for Years 12 & 13 put us in the top 25% of schools nationally for added value from GCSE results and in 2017 approximately 100 students in Year 13 went on to university with approximately 33% going to the prestigious Russell Group Universities.

We currently offer students a choice of 25 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 Child Care 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 mixed Year 12 and 13 tutor group made up of approximately 20-25 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.

We do all we can to bring out the very best in every student – please visit our website or give us a call for more information about studying at Trinity Sixth Form Centre this September.

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 6form@trinity.cumbria.sch.uk.

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.
