Welcome to the Chaplaincy & Ethos pages for Trinity School.

The Chaplaincy provision is for the whole school community - Nursery, Prep and Senior School and includes pupils, staff and parents. It is led by the Rev'd Jonathon Ross-McNairn (pictured) who is Trinity's first full time Anglican chaplain.

"Since 2014, the school has employed a full-time chaplain, a C of E priest. As well as formal celebrations, chapel and assemblies, his role includes the pastoral care of pupils and staff. He also teaches PE and looks after the boarders a few nights a week; he is keen to get to know eveyone. He is also keen that the school becomes a part of the local community and that pupils 'don't live in a bubble.' He encourages them to 'look outward' and participate in local charitable events. Pupils we spoke to were happy with the school's approach to religion and said 'it's not pushed, it's a way of life' at Trinity." Good Schools Guide 2016

"At Trinity School we value every person regarding them as uniquely created and loved by God. We seek to provide an environment and opportunities where everyone can explore what this means, primarily discovering the gifts that God has given them within a safe and happy environment. It also means that if pupils wish they can both question Christianity as well as grow in their faith through the many Christian activities , both formal and informal, that Trinity School provides." Revd Jonathon

Trinity School places great value on the work of the Chaplaincy having a full time Chaplain who oversees the chaplaincy work in all parts of the school. The Chaplain and Chaplaincy team work to give all pupils the opportunity to explore the Christian faith as well as being another strand in the pastoral support of pupils.

If pupils so wish there are many opportunities at Trinity School for pupils to explore what it means to be a Christian and to grow in their faith. Either through the programme of Chapel services and assemblies, the Christian Union, Alpha, form tutorial time or the annual Confirmation course. Every Lent we invite a number of guest speakers to address the whole school on a particular Lenten theme.

Whether you are a Christian or not Trinity School's Christian ethos is central to its identity and to the life of the school community.
