A marvellous effort once again this year in donating items for our Harvest collection. A total of 2812 items have been brought in, displayed in the students’ foyer and subsequently delivered to the local Cornerstone Centre. The photographs, above, show some of our Sixth Form (Year 12) students helping with the counting and distribution. Remember, in this context, the words of Jesus in Matthew Ch 25 v 35;
“When I was hungry, you gave me food;
When thirsty, you gave me drink…..
Anything you did for one of my brothers here,
However humble, you did for me.”

As referred to in an earlier newsletter, our recently acquired Teaching School status now allows us to offer support to other schools in areas of need. Mrs Flatman, our Deputy Head with responsibility for personnel matters, is currently organising a range of professional development courses that will be available at Trinity and, we hope, spread aspects of our outstanding practice to other institutions. We have also entered into a “Collaborative Agreement” with the proposed Manchester Rutherford School, planned to help address the increasing demand for high school places in Manchester. More details on the back page.
The Sixth Form Open Evening, to be held from 7.30pm - 8.30pm on Wednesday, 12th October, was advertised in last weeks newsletter, on the school website and, for Year 11 students attending other schools, in this weeks Manchester Evening News, the Metro and local Advertiser newspapers. The current Year 12 Trinity students are recognisable by their smart appearance and positive attitude towards their education, as the above photographs taken in the Sixth Form dining room and an advanced level biology lesson illustrate.
Year 11 students and parents are invited to attend the above event. The Trinity Sixth Form offers a broad range of subjects and courses, guaranteed small class sizes and a tutorial support ratio of 10:1. There are also a good range of “enrichment” activities, referred to on the next page, and the value of working with staff who know our students extremely well is clearly an advantage. Plus, of course, according to OFSTED and the National Society, Trinity is an “outstanding” school. Visit the Sixth Form Centre on 12th October and see what you think! We’re sure you won’t be disappointed.
