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.
A copy of this edition has been posted to parents of all our Year 10 students, because it is the current Year 10 which will form the first intake of the Trinity Sixth Form in September, 2016. The building is now really taking shape as the above external and internal images show, and the completion date is still 2nd October, 2015. Last week, I met with representatives of our Year 10 and Year 9 students to give them an update on the building progress, to provide an explanation of how our Sixth Form would operate and to answer any questions. Summary details can be found on the inside pages.
The pictures, above, show the University of Manchester’s Chemistry Department giving their annual “Flash Bang” lecture at Trinity. All Year 9 students were invited to enjoy this spectacular event full of explosions, bright lights and strong smells. Earlier in the year, students in Year 9 were involved in the University’s “Bugs to Drugs” event, organised by the School of Pharmacy. Two great events, enabling students to sample the practical side of this most important subject. One of the benefits of our city centre location is the ease with which lectures and demonstrations from both universities can be accommodated at Trinity.
