Many thanks for taking a look at our information. We hope that the information provided will help you to make one of the most important, but difficult, decisions of your life; which school would be best for you. Trinity Academy is an 11-18 academy which opened in September 2005. We are dedicated to raising standards and creating opportunities. We seek to provide a school where every student achieves their personal best and is confident and happy. To achieve this, clear expectations, rewards and sanctions are laid down and applied within a caring environment. The Academy puts quality 'teaching and learning' at the heart of its work in an effort to allow students to take the best opportunities and careers that life presents.

What makes us different:

Trinity Academy is a specialist school with particular emphasis on Business, ICT and Enterprise. This encourages students to develop confidence, creative thinking, business sense and a 'can do' attitude whilst at the same time they live and work in a community where everyone cooperates and has an equal place. This means that we have a personal best culture in which every individual focuses on being the best that they can be.

Trinity Academy has a Christian ethos which means that faith and belief are important and we encourage students to think for themselves about the big questions in life. Students of all faiths and none are welcome, however traditional Christian views form the starting point for these discussions.

We have a Sixth Form at the Academy so that students can stay with us from 11 to 18. We believe that this is a great strength because it allows us to work with students to bridge the gap between GCSE and post 16 courses, without students having to go through the disruption of changes from school to college.

In order to help to keep everyone safe and able to achieve their best, we have strict rules and regulations that help to shape young people into good citizens. Uniform, manners, charitable giving and community spirit are vital elements in helping us to provide an environment in which students can thrive from Year 7 to Sixth Form.

Trinity Academy aims for a mutually supportive and beneficial three-way relationship between parent, student and staff.

Additional information

The ESF Lions roared their way to victory in all three matches of their tour of Scotland, held during the October 2005 half-term holiday. The squad played against three independent schools, each having a strong tradition of rugby.  Trinity Academy can feel especially proud as Marcus Stones in Year 11 was awarded the Player of the Tour trophy, for his outstanding effort on the pitch.

Trinity Academy was celebrating after tables showed us to be among the best in the country in terms of 'value-added' - a concept that works out pupils' progress between starting at the school and leaving the school in key stage four. A score above 1000 is positive and the academy achieved 1042.9, putting it well within the top 100 schools in the country.

Five students from Year 10 took part in the FIRST Robotics Challenge in Washington USA. Students had six weeks to build a robot that could pick up rubber rings and hook them onto a moving rack in the middle of the arena. The competition was overwhelming, with some very impressive robots on display.  Some American teams had technical assistance from NASA, GM and other prestigious companies. In recognition of our efforts, as a new team we were awarded the 'Rookie Inspiration Trophy'. The trophy is on display at Trinity Academy.

Features

Trinity Academy is well provided for in terms of the latest in technology, a state of the art building and all of the necessary facilities for sport, drama and cultural pursuits. More important than this is the fact that we are committed to giving our students all of the time and support they need through our House system and extra curricular activities to pursue excellence in everything.
