Welcome to Trinity 6th
It is at this time of year, as students are reaching the end of their GCSE courses, that the next stages of education and training are being considered. Here at Trinity, we consider this next phase hugely important to an individual’s development and to their future education and careers. To this end, I would like to warmly welcome you to Trinity Sixth Form and to introduce the programmes that are available for the forthcoming academic year.
The school has spent several years carefully developing and designing the range and levels of courses offered, ensuring that for each and every student a suitable path is available. We continue in this vein as this year we widen the offer of courses for students at Level 2 and Level 3 as well as our involvement with Partnership Sixth.
At Trinity, it is crucial that students have the opportunity to extend their skills and broaden their horizons. The programmes here in the Sixth Form allow and encourage students to progress into employment, other Further Education courses and University courses at degree level. The relationships that we have already established with local universities, and that are now being developed, enable students to enter the world of Higher Education – and for significant numbers they will be the first in their families. This is real progress and real opportunity.
Every area of the Sixth Form was inspected by Ofsted in 2011 and from teaching through to care, we are rightly proud of the many aspects of provision which are associated with excellent comments:
"As a consequence of good teaching, they achieve well in their learning overall…" (Ofsted 2011)
"A good curriculum has been developed…" (Ofsted 2011)
"The relevance and success of the curriculum in meeting the differing needs of students is demonstrated by the data from last year…" (Ofsted 2011)
"…high levels of support and guidance offered prior to transition…" (Ofsted 2011)
The procedure to join our Sixth Form is a staged and monitored process where each applicant is given considered information, advice and guidance by experienced staff. Places are offered in accordance with the criteria set for each level of course.
Those students who study in Trinity Sixth Form are a fundamental part of the whole school community. We expect them to fully embrace the values embedded in the Trinity School Code and engage with the Christian ethos of the school: two components essential to the life of Trinity as a Church of England school.
Whatever path or course that you decide to pursue in the future, on behalf of all those involved here at Trinity School and its Sixth Form, I wish you every success.
