Saying ‘no’ for the bigger ‘yes’, with God working with us, and through us. Staff, parents and carers have a duty to support the school in these aims.
Trinity offers an all-round excellent education for pupils of all abilities and backgrounds. We encourage everyone to make use of our God given talents, just as Jesus does in our chosen linked Scripture (Mark 1: 21-38).
The school is committed to developing young people to make a difference to our community, both within the school and beyond the school gate. Pupils are encouraged to recognise their strengths and nurture them, whilst also embracing the many challenges they face. We teach pupils to understand and think outside of their immediate context, equipping them with the cultural capital to flourish within the modern world. Just as Jesus recognises the need to spread his message to neighbouring towns, our young people recognise the importance of the ‘bigger picture’. Sometimes we have to say ‘no’ to fulfil a bigger ‘yes’.
As a result, the school is a purposeful and faithful community. Pupils recognise they are playing a part in a wider story, living together and supporting one another to aspire to be the very best version of themselves.
Mark 1: 21-38
21 They went to Capernaum; and when the sabbath came, he entered the synagogue and taught.
22 They were astounded at his teaching, for he taught them as one having authority, and not as the scribes.
23 Just then there was in their synagogue a man with an unclean spirit,
24 and he cried out, "What have you to do with us, Jesus of Nazareth? Have you come to destroy us? I know who you
are, the Holy One of God."
25 But Jesus rebuked him, saying, "Be silent, and come out of him!"
26 And the unclean spirit, convulsing him and crying with a loud voice, came out of him.
27 They were all amazed, and they kept on asking one another, "What is this? A new teaching—with authority!
He commands even the unclean spirits, and they obey him."
28 At once his fame began to spread throughout the surrounding region of Galilee.
29 As soon as they left the synagogue, they entered the house of Simon and Andrew, with James and John.
30 Now Simon's mother-in-law was in bed with a fever, and they told him about her at once.
31 He came and took her by the hand and lifted her up. Then the fever left her, and she began to serve them.
32 That evening, at sundown, they brought to him all who were sick or possessed with demons.
33 And the whole city was gathered around the door.
34 And he cured many who were sick with various diseases, and cast out many demons; and he would not permit the
demons to speak, because they knew him.
35 In the morning, while it was still very dark, he got up and went out to a deserted place, and there he prayed.
36 And Simon and his companions hunted for him.
37 When they found him, they said to him, "Everyone is searching for you."
38 He answered, "Let us go on to the neighbouring towns, so that I may proclaim the message there also; for that is
what I came out to do."
