Aims and Ethos
Our Mission is :
“The rigorous pursuit of excellence balanced by compassionate concern for individuals”.
We aim to achieve this by :
Encouraging the growth of intellectual curiosity, creativity and independent learning whilst also preparing each boy for the best possible examination results, through a broadly based, coherent and balanced curriculum.
Providing well qualified, inspirational and dedicated staff, committed to continual professional development, who have high expectations of all pupils, who enjoy teaching and learning, and who enable pupils to fulfil their academic potential within an intellectually vibrant community.
Providing outstanding pastoral care and ensuring that relationships within the school are based on mutual respect within a highly supportive environment.
Encouraging the development in each pupil of self-discipline, responsibility, physical and emotional well being, moral and spiritual values, and consequently the highest possible standards of behaviour, confidence in themselves and consideration for others.
Offering excellent facilities and a wide range of high quality extra curricular activities through which pupils develop a healthy sense of co-operation and competition as well as enjoying their social, sporting and cultural interests for their own sakes.
Preparing pupils for life beyond school through an understanding of higher education and career possibilities, a development of entrepreneurial and leadership skills, an informed appreciation of the diversity of the world and a sense of service to the wider community.
Working in a close and effective partnership with parents and encouraging them to be actively involved in their child’s education.
Trinity School is part of the Whitgift Foundation, founded in 1596 by John Whitgift, Archbishop of Canterbury. His legacy provides the School with outstanding facilities and an exceptionally extensive range of bursaries and scholarships, allowing boys from a wide variety of backgrounds to benefit from an education at Trinity. It also established the Christian foundation on which the School is built.Today,Trinity warmly welcomes those of all faiths and none, although Christian values still inform and underpin all we do.
We value each pupil as a unique individual and work to ensure that all relationships in the School are based on mutual respect.We expect high standards of behaviour, founded on personal responsibility and self-discipline combined with genuine concern and compassion for others.
The outstanding pastoral care offered at Trinity means all students will receive carefully considered advice at every stage of their school career, tailored to their individual needs and circumstances. All students will have a Tutor, someone they will see at least twice a day, who will listen, advise and help them to make and understand their own choices.
