We have welcomed back many familiar faces from last year’s Year 11 into our Sixth Form this year, and studying alongside them in Year 12 are some students who have travelled far and wide to join us. Pictured above are students from regions of the U.K. - Middlesbrough in the north east, Hogsthorpe in Lincolnshire, Newport in Wales and East Ham in London. Alongside them we also have some students who have recently studied in Alabama (USA), Nairobi (Kenya), Dubai (UAE), Burundi (East Africa), Iran in the Middle East and Singapore in Asia! Our new students have settled well into our community, enjoying lessons and making friends. The Trinity Sixth Form has become the study place of choice for many of our high achieving students; as you can see we are now attracting very able and hardworking students from around the world!

Students returned to school for the start of a new academic year on Tuesday, 5th September, and were welcomed in assemblies by the new Head of Trinity CE High School, Julian Nicholls; “We have had a great start to the year with new students into Years 7 and 12 arriving full of enthusiasm and looking forward to their years at Trinity. I joined the school as an Assistant Head in 2001 and have a deep and abiding connection to Trinity and to Manchester. I’m looking forward hugely to building on the many achievements of the two previous Headteachers.”
As we come to the end of the school year, and bearing in mind what is referred to as our “Christian character and Anglican distinctiveness”, focus this week is placed on Mondays Eucharist service. We welcomed Revd Falak Sher from St Werburgh’s, Chorlton, and Church of the Ascension, Hulme, to lead our service. The reading was taken from John Ch 15 v 12-17, with the associated theme that God’s love is all around us and that we can give “respect, dignity and love to each other”. In doing so, we can “grow in love”. Also, in the photographs above is a newly appointed Trinity governor, the Venerable Karen Lund, Archdeacon of Manchester.
In this, the penultimate edition of the school newsletter for 2016-2017, it is appropriate to remind ourselves of what has been achieved in recent years and the level at which we are working. Details can be found on the inside pages. Prior to all this, however, is to ensure that the pre-conditions for effective learning are in place; that we have a situation in which students feel safe, secure, cared for and happy and are able to concentrate on their work. Boys and girls at Trinity clearly want to be here and value their education, as our current attendance of 96.8% for this school year shows.
