Last Wednesday, our Candlemas Eucharist was led by Revd Professor Peter Scott from the University of Manchester’s Department of Religion and Theology. Revd Scott is a Trinity governor, his children attended Trinity and he is based at St John’s Church in Trafford. The Eucharist focused on Luke Ch 2 v 22-32, the hymn “Bless the Lord O My Soul” and the significance of Jesus as the “light of the world”. Trinity students delivered prayers and readings to the congregation and the Eucharist, as always, was extremely well attended. The monthly Eucharist service is a key part of our “Christian character and Anglican distinctiveness” and students attend voluntarily.

On Thursday, last week, 87% of parents attended the consultation meeting with subject teachers, an event timed to coincide with the Year 9 subject options process. It was also another opportunity for our Sixth Form students to show their level of responsibility and maturity as they welcomed parents and Year 9 students to this very important occasion. The photograph, above, shows the warm Sixth Form welcome and smiles that greeted our guests as they arrived at the sports centre. Incidentally, the deadline for applications to join our Sixth Form in September, 2017, was 31st January. We have received 167 applications for the 150 places available. Anyone who has missed the deadline should see Ms Tattum as soon as possible.
