"We like the ‘family’ feel of the school. The support shown between students across the differing years is fantastic."

Senior parent


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. Whilst failure is never the objective, it offers a unique opportunity to learn, provided that there is a network of support to enable the pupil to move forward stronger and more confident. 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. Creating a school where a few at the top succeed is relatively straight forward but the real challenge is to push through the entire cohort who all achieve at or above their expected level as well as leaving with attributes that enable them to be determined, optimistic and emotionally intelligent.

I am delighted that Trinity has gone from strength to strength in the last few years and is acknowledged as one of the region’s finest and top achieving schools. We continue to win many awards for our achievements both inside and outside the classroom. These include the Independent Schools’ Association Award for Innovation in STEM subjects, 6 Good Schools Guide awards for academic results, National Awards for the Arts and a wide range of sporting accolades both locally and nationally. This continued strive for excellence is reflected in our inclusion in the Good Schools Guide.

Trinity’s Christian ethos and family atmosphere are complemented by a commitment to excellence in both academic and personal development.  Recent inspections by both ISI and Ofsted have rated the School as Outstanding and the School has successfully demonstrated a determination to deliver the best education possible for the pupils in its care. 

Our website can only give you an insight into life at Trinity.

I would value the opportunity to meet you and explore how we can best support your child’s needs.
