What says..

Not far from the rugged moors of Dartmoor and the surf beaches of South Devon, Teignmouth is a traditional English seaside town. It is a quiet town, not known for nightly rowdiness like other nearby hotspots. This is part of the attraction for parents; it’s safe. Providing a supportive learning environment for children that lack confidence, or have had a bad experience of learning, seems to be what Trinity does best. A parent of an oversea boarder told us, ‘He had…

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

What The Good Schools Guide says

Headmaster

Since September 2016, Lawrence Coen BSc Hons (Aberystwyth), PGCE (St Lukes, Exeter), NPQH. A science teacher, specialising in biology, Mr Coen was previously senior deputy head and spent time as a residential boarding master, as well as being involved in sport and co-curricular activities at the school.

Academic matters

In 2017, 38 per cent A*/A grades and 57 per cent A*-B at A level. At GCSE, 11 per cent A*/A grades. Trinity is a non-selective school, catering for a wide range of academic ability and results vary considerably from year to year. Classes are very small - rarely reach double figures. At all levels in recent years, girls have achieved far better results than the boys, although this may be a secondary effect of SEN/EAL currently being more heavily represented amongst the boys.

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.
