Welcome to Trinity Church of England High School.

Set in the heart of the University District of Manchester, we are an outstanding 11-18 high school and Sixth Form with a rich history and a very exciting future. Founded on the principles of ‘Faith in the city, Value in people and Excellence in education’ we offer high standards of care, support, achievement and attainment to our pupils from all faiths and all areas of the city.

Founded in 1984, we are well established and superbly placed to make the most of the opportunities that the city provides.  We have strong links with the universities and make regular use of their facilities as well as those right beside us like the Whitworth Art Gallery, Royal Northern College of Music, Z-Arts and the Commonwealth Pool.

We have very supportive parents, ambitious and hardworking learners and a very talented and experienced staff team.  Trinity is truly an exciting place to work and to learn.  If you share our values, come and join us!

Julian Nicholls, Head

Life at Trinity High.

Developing in students the joy of discovery and the discipline of study whilst creating an atmosphere of belonging and security.

“There is so much on offer at Trinity, I came here as a shy little boy and now I’m the captain of the school football team, in a ‘high flying’ form and getting great levels in tests thanks to all the staff.”

Current Pupil

“The school, under the wonderfully bright and enthusiastic Head of Transition, takes great care to ensure that the transition is as easy and as stress free as is possible. Every effort is made to know the pupil before they step foot into the school.”


“Year seven was full of new and fun experiences. I made new friends and discovered subjects I never thought I would like.”
