Trinity has once again been selected as a Finalist in the Performing Arts and Social Mobility categories at the Independent School of the Year awards 2021.
The ‘Independent School of the Year for the Performing Arts’ award is for the school which most impresses the judges with the impact that participation in the performing arts has on students throughout the school, while the ‘Independent School of the Year for Contribution to Social Mobility’ winner will be that which most impresses the judges by the way in which it has made an inspirational and decisive contribution to upward social mobility within its community in the past year.
With unparalleled opportunities in the performing arts available at Trinity, it is also fantastic to receive recognition of our efforts to ensure that Trinity is a school for children from every walk of life.
We were delighted, for instance, with the response to our fundraising campaign in support of the Trinity Bursary Fund in recent months – with nearly 500 people making a gift in the last year. And we were thrilled to have thirteen of our young alumni return to Trinity this summer for our fundraising telephone campaign which has raised £170,000 so far – and counting.
“As a result, this month, we welcome an additional 14 students on bursaries of 90% or more that have been funded solely by donations from within our community,” says David Young, director of Development.
The winners of each category, plus the overall Independent School of the Year, will be announced at a virtual awards ceremony being held on Thursday 7th October.
