Exam Results 2018
Trinity pupils rose to the challenge of the new more academically rigorous GCSE exams in all subjects this year by achieving some excellent results across a wide range of subjects. A comprehensive school, Trinity has a true mix of pupils ranging from those who are academically able through to those that struggle with reading and writing. Support and intervention is specific to each individual. As a small school we are able to tailor the support to meet the needs of each pupil.
Destinations data shows for the third year in a row we have 25% of our cohort moving on to grammar schools and take up scholarships at Independent schools. Around 70% go on to study A Levels and the rest go on to do a mix of apprenticeships, Level 3 vocational qualifications and combined A Level and vocational courses.
A8 (Attainment 8) comes out at 46 which is in line with National Average
P8 (Progress 8) is significantly better than last year and in-line with National Average. The national algorithm has not yet been released – so we do not have this actual figure yet. Based on last year’s formula we come out just below 0.

This is just a selection of the successes we had this academic year. We work tirelessly to ensure all our pupils have a secured destination and we follow their achievements as they progress post 18. From two years ago we have 2 pupils going on to Cambridge University, with a further large group moving onto Russell Group Universities – including some going onto Medicine. We have also heard about numerous past pupils securing apprenticeships and jobs after sixth form. Our pupils’ successes prove that they truly are terrific
We are an extended family. Come and join us.
