What The Good Schools Guide says..
Trinity School is a small school that provides a safe and supportive environment for pupils of all abilities - particularly those who may have struggled to learn in the past, or lacked the confidence or support to reach their potential....
What the school says...
Throughout my career my primary concern has been to both support and challenge the learning of each individual pupil. My motivation to lead lies in the basic belief that by providing a positive educational experience we are able to make a difference to the lives of young adults. This goes beyond just academic achievement to encompass raising student self-esteem and giving students the confidence to realise that they can be happy, successful and lead fulfilling lives. I believe that young people need to be regularly challenged; encouraged to have an open mind so that they can improve and make a more positive contribution to society. The educational needs of students in the 21st century extend beyond memorising facts to facing challenge, dealing with ‘obstacles’, innovation and effective contribution to a team. ...Read more

Special Education Needs
We aim to identify a pupil's special need as soon as possible. We use the results of baseline tests, tests of self-esteem and an ongoing process of monitoring progress by subject and form teachers, to identify a potential learning difficulty. If a learning difficulty is suspected we will arrange for further, more specific, testing, by an educational psychologist with the agreement of parents. The result of these tests, along with recommendations will be circulated to subject teachers, identifying the learning style of the pupil. Extra specialist tuition will be arranged and provided by qualified staff in specialist education. We regard the pupils self-esteem to be of vital importance to their learning and recognise that each pupil, whatever their difficulty, is an individual.
