Trinity is the Sixth Form most suited to me. The school allows me to adapt my subjects to my own way of learning – teaching me to be independent while still receiving guidance from my teachers. Sixth Form has made me realise just how community orientated Trinity truly is.
The Student Council enables students to become partners in their own education and make a positive contribution to the school environment and ethos.
They can make contributions to every aspect of the school community including:
- Improve academic performance.
- Reduce bullying and petty vandalism.
- Helping younger/new students.
- Reduce school exclusions.
- Improve communication between teachers and students.
- Help the school grow as a community.
- Provide students with extended opportunities for Citizenship.
- Class representatives who do not sit on the main council will be involved in sub-committees in a variety of activities e.g. researching an issue, finding out opinions, designing posters for events, publicity, charity fund raising and care of the environment. These sub-groups are accountable to the main Council.
