As we approach the last few days of another school year, newsletter number 39 becomes the “final” edition of the year. As usual, though, the great range of activities referred to in this final edition confirm the breadth of Trinity’s curriculum. Above, top left, Mr Worsley and students receive the school’s defibrillator at a Midland Hotel presentation; top right, Trinity gardeners at work in the nature area; bottom left, our wild flower garden at the far end of the front car park; bottom right, the developing Sixth Form Centre, looking north with the Beetham Tower in the background.

Under the guidance of the Learning Resource Base Manager, Mr Richardson, lunchtime activities in the LRB can be thought provoking and stimulating - particularly the emphasis on chess and reading. Equally important, though, are the activities promoted through physical education lessons and associated extra-curricular activities. The photographs, above, show a range of pastimes that are intended to ensure that Trinity provides for all its students, whether thoughtful or active, individual or team based. Chess, basketball and reading for pleasure, plus many more activities in the daily life of Trinity students.
The photographs, above, illustrate the varied activities available to Trinity students in a typical week. Top left how, even in the last two weeks since the last newsletter ‘update’, the Sixth Form construction has accelerated; top right, the very successful ‘Evening of Dance’; bottom left, Monique Bayliss, the first Year 7 student to complete the ‘Literacy Leaders’ Challenge’; bottom right, a view of the flamingos that our Year 9 geographers would have had on their recent visit to the Martin Mere Wetland Centre in Lancashire. Something for everyone, I’m sure you’ll agree, in our quest to make education as stimulating and engaging as possible.
Well done to all the students who received awards at our recent Sport Presentation event. Individual and team triumphs were recognised and awards presented by Sale RUFC and England international Josh Beaumont. Notable successes this year have been in track and field, basketball, indoor athletics, handball and indoor rowing. Well done, in particular, to Year 7 boys, Year 9 boys, Year 10 boys, Year 9 girls, Year 10-11 girls and Year 8-9 boys. A great evening, extremely well attended and followed a few days later by sports day, details of which can be found on the inside page.
