Trinity School

In their own words

The success we are aiming for is not just the excellence that our students achieve; it is evidenced in the kind of people they become. Our aim is that Trinity boys and girls become the very best versions of themselves; people who choose to impact the world positively when they leave us.

We believe that great outcomes are delivered through a culture of strong values. That is why we are proud to have established a community of generosity and kindness, in which every student is known and cared for as an individual. In this nurturing environment, the curiosity and ambition of each young person can be fully explored and expressed. This, in turn, opens doors to the world’s best universities, colleges and careers.

Equally, we want students to leave Trinity without any sense of entitlement, but with a humility that acknowledges the fact that there is always more to learn and others to learn from. We welcome students from an unusually wide range of socio-economic and cultural backgrounds, and they leave ready to build and contribute to the communities they join, with the skills and responsibility to care for other people and the wider world.

Whilst at Trinity, we want every student to love being part of our community, and to thrive on the opportunities to learn and engage. When they leave, we hope they will have made these values their own.

I would very much like to welcome you to the School so you can feel for yourself the warm, purposeful atmosphere and experience the true spirit of Trinity.
