The Aims of Trinity Sixth Form
The Sixth Form at Trinity aims to challenge and support all students irrespective of gender, race or disability to fulfil their personal, social and academic potential.
The curriculum will provide pathways of progression to Further and Higher Education and into careers.
The Sixth Form embraces the values of the Trinity School Code within a strong Christian ethos.
Trinity School aims to steadily expand the curriculum provision within the Sixth Form and ensure that standards of achievement continue to rise.
The Supporting Curriculum
It is essential that the curriculum offers more than just the ‘traditional’ subjects if students are to become part of a tolerant and understanding society. In addition, students must also be prepared to tackle the issues surrounding adult life. As part of its supporting curriculum, Trinity Sixth Form includes a wide range of initiatives which are designed to support and enhance the programme of study.
The main thrust of this additional study follows three core routes:
1. Tutorials & Enrichment - Additional activities to support the students’ development.
2. Religious Education - As a Church of England School, Trinity values the contribution that the Sixth Form make towards the spiritual life of the school. All students are expected to attend a timetabled lesson of Religious Education.
3. PSHE/Citizenship - A tailored programme which ensures students are prepared for the outside world.
Religious Education and PSHE/Citizenship are jointly covered in a two year programme called Religious & Social Education.

A Level Policy 2016/17
For academic years 2015/16 and 2016/17, Trinity School has remained committed to entering students for the AS qualification under the new specifications. The only exception to this is Computing where the linear course has been followed with no AS entry. This will remain our policy until there are comparable outcomes to suggest otherwise. Students typically follow a programme of either 3 or 4 A-Levels and in some cases mixed academic and vocational courses.
