Earlier this month, 7NBA had their first bake off with a selection of baked goodies to indulge on including a remarkable NBA Skittles cake baked by Ella Jones. The judges, Miss Bansal and Miss James, particularly enjoyed the event and decided that all 8 bakers who participated would be given the privilege of baking again but for the whole school. Their delicacies were on offer to buy at a charity bake sale that was hosted by 7NBA at break time on Wednesday, 20th June. The bake sale forms part of the Archbishop of York award scheme the form are currently involved with and all proceeds of the sale will be donated to the Young Minds charity.

From Course Director of KS5 Science, Dr Alnuamaani:
“Students from Year 7 have formed a group called “Breaking Through”. Throughout the year they have been working with members of Manchester University’s widening participation team and a local charity called Reclaim, to break down barriers that might affect their chances of successful exam results and career choices in the future. The Reclaim team was ran by former Trinity student, Terry Manyeh. The students have spent time at the University learning about different career options and what will make them succeed in the future. They have also explored what might be holding them back. This term’s work culminated in the students presenting a special assembly to fellow students and staff about a career that interested them or a story in the media that has inspired them. Students choose a range of topics to present from the search for exoplanets to the injustice seen during the Stephen Lawrence case. Terry said that working with Trinity students has been the highlight of his career so far.
The students were brilliant during their assembly and received certificates from Stephanie Lee, the Head of Widening participation at Manchester University. They will continue to be part of the “Breaking Through” group all the way until Year 11.”
...please note, due to the Year 11 Final Assembly on Thursday, 28th June, there will be an early closure at 2.05pm for Years 7-10 students on this day.
