Mid-way through a two year GCSE period of study is an appropriate time to evaluate and recognise progress. Earlier, this week, our “Year 10 Celebration of Progress” event did just that.
Certificates were awarded, reports handed out and former students gave out advice via a video link. Our guest was Trinity governor and parent Dr Admos Chimhowu, from the University of Manchester.
Dr Chimhowu presented the awards and gave a stimulating and highly appropriate address, following which all students wrote their own “pledge” for the year ahead.
Department for Education support and £3 million capital investment is now in place, and the next few months will see rapid progress in this most important aspect of Trinity’s development.
A Trinity Sixth Form Development Group of the Head, Mr Artus (governor), Mr Butt (pastoral needs) and Mr Nicholls (curriculum needs), are now meeting regularly with representatives of our architects, Taylor Young, and builders, Seddons Construction, to plan our new facilities.
Construction work is scheduled to begin in mid August, 2014, with a completion date of May, 2015. This will then give us twelve more months to introduce our students to Sixth Form opportunities, deliver activities to groups of prospective students in the Sixth Form tutorial rooms, implement structured tours of the premises and explain fully the opportunities available.
As always, the last week in June is a mixture of euphoria and some sadness as our Year 11s celebrate their time at Trinity with the “Prom”, immediately followed the next day by the leavers’ assembly.
On Wednesday, last week, our most senior students were dressed in their finery for an excellent “Prom” held at the Britannia Hotel, in Northenden.
The following afternoon, an extremely high attendance as students said farewell to Trinity. Magical moments are captured in the photographs, above, and in the latest newsletter.
We are hoping that all our students leave Trinity with fond memories, firm friendships and on the way to becoming, as our aim states, “well qualified citizens of the world”.
