History of school and Mission Statement


Trinity is a Catholic learning community with a clear moral purpose, which calls all by name to the knowledge of the Father and love of the Son, enriched by the gifts of the Holy Spirit.

We seek to develop values in students that are rooted in our Catholic faith. We are committed to nurturing educated, informed, creative, fulfilled and socially responsible citizens. We learn with a religious, spiritual and moral purpose and strive towards personal excellence, acknowledging that all are made in the image of God.

Our Mission is to ensure that Jesus Christ is made known to all our students by placing Christ and His teaching and the teaching of the Catholic Church at the centre of students’ lives. We do this through announcing that Jesus Christ called us to be peace makers – and that we fulfil His call through Justice, Reconciliation and Non-Violence.

We endeavour to make known to every student that they are made equal to their fellow humans, a child of God, made in His image – uniquely created and loved by God. This is expressed in our motto – Equal by means of God’s Image.

Every student is called to live out the gospel values by loving God, others and themselves and by aspiring to exhibit the gifts of the Holy Spirit.

Our core values are summed up in the following qualities that we hope all of our students at Trinity Catholic School aspire to show;

Trinity Catholic School is a Catholic, voluntary aided school in Leamington Spa, in the Catholic Archdiocese of Birmingham. The school had its genesis in the amalgamation of two Catholic schools in central Warwickshire, i.e. Dormer High School (founded 1959) and Bishop Bright Grammar School (founded 1966). The establishment of Freeman Hall, a sixth-form college, on the Bishop Bright site, and the eventual merger of all three schools on the same site, gave the school its current form.

It is widely known as a more progressive Catholic school. All members of the community are known by their first names. This has its basis in theology; our first names are the names that God knows us by, and it is with that name that he calls us to do good works. The ethos of Trinity rests upon the knowledge that are all made equal in His image.
