Trinity School 

We are proud of our school. It is a vibrant and thriving community with a strong sense of common purpose. Trinity is a place of high standards where responsibility for self and others is encouraged, and where there are superb opportunities for all our students to achieve very well indeed.

Students are at the heart of all we do at Trinity: their achievements academically of course, but also their well-being and their wider development as well rounded individuals. We are a Church of England school, committed to the nurturing of spirituality and the promotion of Christian values through the experience we offer. We have lively, as well as historical, links to Carlisle Cathedral and to the churches and wider community within the city.

At the heart of what goes on in any school is the learning that happens in classrooms and that is certainly true for Trinity School. Our classrooms and workshops are both traditional and ultra-modern, and have been transformed in the £20 million rebuilding of the school. Each subject also enjoys a Learning Resource Area with open-access computers and printers to help students develop their own research. We have two fine libraries, one of which serves the needs of our Sixth Form students. We run a Learn to Learn course in Year 7 to develop the approaches to study which students need to be successful. We set by ability in each subject from Year 7 to ensure that we can challenge and stimulate learners of all abilities.

Our examination results have been very good for several years now at both GCSE and A level. To make sure that all students achieve the best results they can, we follow the progress of every one of them in each subject very closely through the school. Interim Reviews, interviews with students, Parents’ Evenings, Annual Reports and regular discussions with Form Tutors are important features of our partnership with Trinity families which is central to our work. Feedback in books, support from House or Sixth Form staff, careers advice and guidance all help to move students forward so that they can realise their hopes and ambitions.
