Core values

High Teaching Standards

Trinity’s engagement scheme provides everyone with the incentive to fulfil their potential and to feel included. It’s not just about being recognised for academic achievement, as engagement means valuing different talents and acknowledging the effort students put in. Some learning is very challenging, especially when exams are coming up, but our teachers give us the confidence to aim high. I feel like the teachers do everything they can to push students to reach their full potential, including offering after school and lunchtime extra help. My family say they have noticed that I have gained in self-confidence during my time at Trinity.

The Whole Person

Developing as an individual is easy in an accepting, diverse and vibrant community that encourages open discussion and the sharing of ideas and talents. We are a tight-knit community where students are not treated as numbers, but valued as individuals who can each offer something unique. This ethos is at the heart of Trinity. During my time at Trinity, I have had many opportunities to develop my character, from performing in music concerts, to going on school PE trips and from being part of student led groups (such as Pax Christi and CAFOD) to volunteering at a food bank and doing paired
reading. Trinity has inspired me to be better.

Community Responsibility

Our community within the school is important to us, but so too is our surrounding local community. Community responsibility is facilitated by the school in a number of ways. Students develop a sense of team work through the house system, and groups like Pax Christi and the School Council provide structures within the school for students to become ambassadors and make a difference. Other programmes include paired reading and mentoring schemes that help to form strong connections between the younger and older students. In addition to this, older students are encouraged to volunteer in the local community on Wednesday afternoons. Community responsibility is key to Trinity life.

Sporting Success

At Trinity we train and compete in a wide variety of sports, including rugby, football, dance, athletics, cricket, basketball, netball, gymnastics and trampolining. This is offered to all year groups and played against various
local secondary schools. In this past year, we have done particularly well in basketball, athletics and rugby with some of our students going on to represent district or county teams. I think our success is down to the healthy competitive environment encouraged at Trinity. Success and engagement are celebrated in an end of year PEPA Faculty awards night. Sport at Trinity aims to be inclusive, enjoyable and promote leadership, yet we still have the ambition to win.
