Associate Principal's welcome
I would like to welcome you to Trinity School, a school which was described by Anglican Schools inspectors as ‘an outstanding Church of England secondary school’.
Trinity School is the only Church of England secondary school in the London Borough of Bexley and has a reputation for commitment to students of all abilities and a renowned level of pastoral care. This is the result of a stable, dedicated and highly effective team of staff ensuring that pupils have every opportunity to succeed in a huge variety of activities in and out of the classroom. Trinity became an academy in April 2011.
Trinity is a school with a strong Christian ethos and this brings a central spiritual and moral dimension to all that we do. The Act of Worship, Eucharist and prayer meetings serve to confirm and support work in the classroom and our expectations of students including those belonging to other faith communities. Anglican Schools inspectors said: “Students confidently and sensitively discuss matters of faith and belief, and their understanding of religious issues supports community cohesion”.
We aim to find the route to excellence for every pupil in their time with us and to develop a life long love of learning. We expect every boy and girl who joins us to do his or her very best, to be happy and feel safe at school, and to respect the Trinity School Code. Ofsted inspectors said: “Students enjoy their schooling, and this contributes to their good achievement”.
Trinity is part of the Trinitas Academy Trust together with Christ Church (Erith) and St Augustine of Canterbury Primary Schools. This exciting new venture has created a family of schools where strong Christian values are at the centre of everything we do.
The resources of all schools are used to provide a stimulating learning environment which inspires children to do their best. The trust is distinctive in its values but inclusive in its nature.
The three schools in the Trust work together on all aspects of teaching and learning but still retain their individual character.
The Academy Trust is led by a Board of Directors which includes members of the Governing Bodies, representatives of the Bishop of Rochester and the Diocesan Board of Education. A Chief Executive has overall responsibility for the Trust and the Academies are led by an Executive Principal working with school Principals.
Choosing a school for your son or daughter can be amongst the most difficult decisions a parent has to make. At Trinity they will have the benefit of a safe and successful school with strong moral and spiritual guidance.
We look forward to working with parents as close partners in providing a challenging and exciting education for young people.
