Welcome to Trinity Church of England School. Our school community is a family, working together to ensure our pupils live life to the full. As a through-school we educate over 1000 pupils from across Lewisham and Greenwich from the age of 4 to 16. We are a faith school, but we welcome families from all faiths and none. Our pupils and staff are respected and listened to, and their unique talents are recognised. Every pupil matters, every lesson counts, and every teacher is committed. We take pride in our achievements and, together, we work hard to help realise the dreams and ambitions of our children and their families.
We hope you enjoy learning more about our school and look forward to welcoming you to Trinity.
Current COVID measures at Trinity
We have been working very closely with our diocese, the Local Authority and Public Health England to ensure we have clear systems in place to keep our school community safe. All our buildings and classrooms have hand sanitisers. Keeping our hands clean is crucial as it keeps the building safe. At the secondary phase we have continued on-site COVID testing for pupils over the last 6 months. This will continue into September. We also provide families with test kits to use at home - testing is a good way of keeping our whole community safe. We have masks on site for pupils to wear and our risk assessment is updated to ensure we have all the measures in place that the Department for Education have communicated to us. We will remind families of our expectations and any changes that we may make through our weekly newsletter.
We do need your help. Anyone with symptoms should still follow the normal arrangements of staying at home and getting a full PCR test. Those that are direct contact of anyone testing positive will also be told to self-isolate by track and trace. If someone in the household is getting tested / awaiting a test result please follow the national guidelines. If the PCR is positive then you need to isolate for 10 days. If the result is negative you can send them back to school. Please do not send in pupils if they have symptoms or someone else in your family have symptoms - please get a test straight away and await the result. This helps protect the whole community.
Welcome to Trinity
I am very proud to address you as Executive Headteacher of this unique ‘all-through’ school. Trinity is a warm, welcoming, friendly school where all pupils are happy learners. Your child is the most important person to you and to us. Every child deserves the best possible start in life and nothing is more important than a good education. Here at Trinity we aim to provide a world-class education for all our pupils regardless of the age or stage at which they join us. Our learners range from 4 to 16 years and are across two sites. The Primary site is a refurbished Victorian building on Leahurst Road and the Secondary phase is in a contemporary new build on Taunton Road. Both have a state of the art new learning environment where pupils will all be provided with up to date learning experiences of the highest quality. Relationships at Trinity are strong and all learners are offered the best support, stretch and challenge to ensure success is everything they do.
We are an ambitious school and all our pupils are encouraged to think about the changing world around us, and how the skills they develop will equip them for a rapidly changing world. OFSTED 2016 graded the school ‘Good’ with ‘Outstanding’ features. SIAMS 2015 (the Statutory Inspection of Anglican and Methodist Schools) graded us as ‘Outstanding’ as the pastoral support and distinctiveness of the school ensured pupils progressed and flourished whilst at Trinity.
Attainment and achievement at Trinity has improved rapidly over the last 3 years and is now currently above National Average in most areas. Key stage 1 learners are also making great progress. Trinity now have pupils throughout the school from Year R to Year 11. The benefits of an us being an all-through school ensures that the curriculum is built across the Primary and Secondary phase, affording students continuity to develop through the secondary transition ensuring progress is continually achieved. We have a strong curriculum intent which ensures our pupils have a relevant, engaging and knowledge rich experience as they move through the school. Our distinctive knowledge organisers across the school equips all our pupils with the understanding and skills to progress through Trinity and beyond to the rest of their lives. The secondary phase accelerates the students and works closely with all the local post-16 providers to ensure their progression beyond Trinity is as smooth as possible and tailored to the individual needs of the pupils. Despite being based in the heart of our capital city, we pride ourselves on the fact that we maintain a village school ethos, providing a friendly and caring environment to our pupils, parents and staff.
As an oversubscribed popular school in Lewisham we work closely with families to give each individual the best chance. We aim to offer life enhancing experiences that will ignite curiosity and provide a platform for all our learners to pursue their aspirations. We aim to develop well-rounded children, both academically and socially, so you can feel confident that your child will get the best possible start in life. We place a strong emphasis on both the academic achievements and also equally on the character development of our pupils.
I hope that you find all of the information you require within the pages of this website. The school is an exciting place to be and should you wish to see us in action, please contact us for a visit.
