Trinity School: A Church of England School - Visions, Values and AimsThe school, a Christian foundation, is committed to the provision of an excellent education for all. We havea ‘motto’ to sum up our aims: Standards, Responsibility and Opportunity for All; this helps to makeour vision for students clear and explicit. We promote Christian values through the experience we offer toall students. Following discussion with staff, students and governors we focus most closely on the valuesof community, trust, hope, endurance and compassion. These are reinforced through assemblies andThought for the Day.We value the uniqueness of all God’s children and make sure that we are inclusive ( for all) in ourapproach to all aspects of our work. We aim to provide the highest standard of education, in its broadestsense, for all of our students and we expect the highest standard of effort and conduct from students,stressing the value of hope in the belief that all students can achieve well with dedication and a positiveapproach. We also stress the value of endurance, dealing with setbacks, in order to achieve ambitions.We encourage all students to be responsible, taking responsibility for their behaviour towards others,treating others as they would wish to be treated, respecting those who are different to themselves, servingothers both within and beyond the school community.We seek to provide rich opportunities and encourage students to grasp these, developing their curiosity,creativity, spirituality and understanding and appreciation of the world around them.We aim to make a difference to young people’s lives, to develop an awareness and respect for spiritualand moral values, so that they, in turn, can enrich the lives of others. The biblical quotation (John 10:10) onprominent display in our Jubilee Hall makes clear our mission: to ensure that our students leave us withthe values, knowledge and skills which will enable them to lead a full and fulfilling life.At Trinity Sixth Form Centre our aims are:o To provide a first-class academic experience for all our studentso To support the learning of all our students and keep students and parents/carers informed ofprogresso To offer students the opportunity to develop skills and confidence within school and the widercommunityo To enable a smooth transition to higher education and employment4

Building on your successSuccessfulWe are proud that students achieve highly at Trinity Sixth Form and that over 75% of students go on to theuniversity of their choice, approximately 30% of which were top Russell Group universities in 2018. Our wellqualified and experienced staff know how to support and guide students through the post-16 educationprocess.SupportEach student belongs to a tutor group of about 20-25 students. Form Tutors work with each studentindividually to support their learning and monitor progress by having regular mentoring sessions. Eachtutor group is supported by a Pastoral Tutor who is responsible for overseeing this process. As youngadults, Sixth Form students need to be given the chance to take on more responsibility for their learning.At the same time, we recognise that the transition to independence is not an easy one and therefore, weprovide clear guidance about our expectations of behaviours, study habits and attendance.OpportunityWe currently offer a range of accredited enrichment opportunities including Duke of Edinburgh, YoungEnterprise and World Challenge. Other opportunities have included study trips abroad, for example toPrague, Paris, Brussels and London, a wide range of drama and musical productions, and success in localand national sporting competitions. Students are encouraged to take an active role in wider school life.We also have an active Student Leadership Team, allowing students to gain experience in strategicplanning and decision making.Sixth Form Pastoral TeamIf you have any concerns about your son or daughter, then please do contact the team.TitleAssistant Headteacher (Sixth Form)Sixth Form Pastoral LeaderPastoral TutorPastoral TutorSixth Form OfficeNameMr Andrew WinterMrs Teresa MedleyMrs Natasha CrickettMrs Joey RobinsonMrs Judith Little and MrsChristiana Ledingham5Contact(01228) 516051 ext 263(01228) 516051 ext 263(01228) 516051 ext 263(01228) 516051 ext 263(01228) 516051 ext 263

Welcome from our Head Boy and Head GirlHaving started Trinity School in September of 2014, our progression throughout the whole of our school careers has,unfailingly, been supported by not only the school staff and the school community, but by the vast amount ofopportunities Trinity provides. The mixture of both a positive environment and enriching opportunities allows anystudent to excel both on an academic level, and a personal level. Joining the Trinity School Sixth Form has furthered thisprogression by delivering a higher level, well-rounded education which tailors to each specific student, allowing theirdevelopment from adolescents to young adults.Despite the fact that the Sixth Form is integrated with the lower school, the whole atmosphere differs in the way thatthe level of freedom is much higher, and there is a much larger emphasis on independence – meaning that everyone hastheir own focus on and responsibility with their learning. The surplus of learning areas; the Carliol Library, providing booksand journals for aid of independent research, multiple LRA’s (learning resource areas) and communal laptop towers,(although inaccessible due to COVID-19 restrictions), which provide an abundance of laptops and computers for studentsto work with. The Sixth Form Bistro, exclusive to Sixth Form students, is a central location, creating a more collaborativefeel and a sense of community. Outside of lunch hours, it provides a relaxed area for students to spend their frees,completing work at their own pace. Trinity Sixth Form is unique due to the connection ofyear 12s and year 13s, the two year groups share the same building, the same private studyvenues, and the same break time, creating a greater sense of unity throughout and allowsa wider network of support for new year 12 students.I (Sam) am studying Psychology, Biology and BTEC Business Studies. I wouldwholeheartedly say that the amount of support I am offered throughout the 3 subjects isimmense and which I am more than happy with. Teachers are constantly checking up onyou behind the scenes; doing everything they can to make sure the workload, thoughchallenging, does not become too much. The school providing a mixture of BTEC and Alevel courses caters for a multitude of different learning styles, therefore encouraging amore diverse population within the Sixth Form community. UCAS is also a large part of SixthForm, about which, students are well supported and guided throughout, ensuring the bestpossible outcome for every individual.I (Deborah) am studying Drama, English Literature, and Art, Craft and Design. Assomeone passionate about the arts, I have nothing but praise to deliver. With a rangeof specialised teachers in all the arts departments, I feel expertly guided throughouteach subject; reviewing topics in detail, developing my skills with practise, and beingencouraged to creatively flourish through 1 on 1 feedback with teachers. The broadrange of subject choices in sixth form allows for anyone’s interests to be met – nomatter how diverse – and ensures that students can study the subjects catered for theirfuture aspirations.Extracurricular activities are another factor which have significantly impacted both ofour school experiences. I (Sam) was surprised when I joined the Sixth Form to learnabout all of the extracurricular sports activities. A 5 a side football league was one ofthese. Organised by the senior leadership team, it gave students an opportunity to relaxwith their school friends, whilst earning money for the school charity by means of an entry fee. Another example of anextra enrichment opportunity is the Extended Project Qualification. Timetabled into each student’s schedule in year 12,it provides them with the skills to do individual research, alongside developed analytical skills when evaluating sources’reliability. I (Deborah) am delighted to be a part of our school’s poetry club; encouraging inventive self-expression,creativity, confidence, and improved writing skills. This helps in my development as a well-rounded individual, deepensmy fascination for literature, and allows me to stay in-touch with my emotions and wellbeing – all serving to prepare mefor my future studies at university. I was also involved in the chamber choir, where I felt valued and able to contribute aspart of a team; providing an outlet into music, outside of my subjects. The school’s curricular and extracurricular activitiesare something it prides itself on and has certainly been very beneficial in our personal growth.Ultimately, we are both very confident that Trinity School Sixth Form was the correct ‘next step’ for us
