What The Good Schools Guide says..
Music is everywhere, strains of flute and keyboard piercing the air like shafts of sunlight, dedicated staff teaching 500 individual lessons a week and top quality instruments as standard (school first in London to boast all-Steinway line up, though arguably trumped by recent chance for top string players to play a real Stradivarius). Around...
What the school says...
Trinity is an independent school for boys aged 10 to 18 with a co-educational Sixth Form. Our aim is to achieve excellence both inside and outside the classroom for every individual student. We have a reputation for being exceptionally caring but also very challenging so each boy and girl is able to fulfil his or her potential. The school is relaxed but dynamic; ambitious but not pretentious. Outstanding facilities, small class sizes and, above all, inspirational teachers combine to give students a learning experience that leads not only to academic excellence but also gives them the emotional intelligence that prepares them for life beyond school.
Entry at ages 10+, 11+ and 13+ is via an examination in Maths, English and Verbal Reasoning, followed by an interview (please contact the school for sample English and Maths papers). Entry at 16+ is via entrance examination and interview. ...Read more

Business studies, chemistry and economics down over previous years, though school ‘expects the new head of department to swiftly turn this round…’ Lots of stars, however, with biology, Eng lit, maths (far and away the single biggest subject) and further maths amongst the large-entry subjects...
Special Education Needs
Whilst stressing that we are not a specialist school, Trinity endeavours to make any reasonable adjustments to the admissions procedure, including extra time, to allow disabled and other special needs candidates to compete for a place without disadvantage. The school offers a limited amount of specialist support for dyslexic pupils, and also welcomes boys with mobility problems - the whole site is equipped for wheelchair access. Our staff have become experienced in and open to the needs presented by a range of conditions. Our main requirement is that all boys, regardless of need, display an academic level and enthusiasm which will allow them to flourish at a selective school such as Trinity. Parents are very welcome to contact the Admissions Tutor to discuss their son's needs on an individual basis.
