Immediately prior to the Easter holiday, a number of Year 7 students took part in the modern foreign languages spelling bee regional final, held at Trinity. Head of Languages, Ms Cecile Jones, writes;
“About seventy schools took part, the standards were extremely high and our team of Simone Basilio, Gareth Lloyd Morris and Keena Kuffoh displayed great skill. Each student had a minute to translate and spell as many words as possible in French, Spanish or German. Numerous Trinity staff and students were involved in the organisation of this extremely successful event.”

“Welcome to Trinity!” was the message last Tuesday and Wednesday evenings as the 240 boys and girls, plus their parents, were invited to attend one of two evenings put on for those who will be joining Trinity Year 7 in September. A number of parents subsequently wrote to the school, including the following:
The ‘Wizard of Oz’ musical certainly lived up to our high expectations with marvellous performances on Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday to almost capacity audiences. The boys and girls involved were professional and polished and the music, scenery and costume were absolutely first class. Well done to everyone involved - staff and students - and a very high profile initiative that once again shows the school’s commitment to the performing arts. Thanks, also, to parents and other family members for supporting the boys and girls with their enthusiasm, optimism and, of course, their attendance at the four performances. More photographs showing scenes from the musical can be seen on the next page.
Congratulations to Emily Aves, Year 12, who has been accepted to join the University of Oxford Summer School to study biochemistry. Emily will live in hall of residence, attend lectures and seminars and take part in a variety of evening social activities. Out of 3960 applicants, only 875 students were selected, so well done to Emily on her achievement. Emily joined the Trinity Sixth Form in September, 2016, with six ‘A*’ grades and three ‘A’ grades in her Year 11 GCSEs. As with many of her colleagues, Emily has clearly made a successful transition to Sixth Form studies. The above photograph shows Emily with Head of Sixth Form, Ms Tattum.
