At Trinity, we understand that all students need to be supported pastorally in order to be able to thrive at school and to learn.

The pastoral care structure with its houses and tutor groups offers strong support to all its students. On joining the school, all students are placed with a Tutor, who is responsible for their overall welfare, overseen by Senior Tutors and Pastoral Support Tutors and supported by Senior Leadership Staff.

We pride ourselves that the Pastoral Teams really get to know each student in their care and help them celebrate their achievements and negotiate and support them through any challenging times, either academically or socially.

The Pastoral Care Teams always have high expectations of the students, promote challenge and open communication between the school, students and parents.

As a richly diverse school, we aim to develop a community of reflective individuals, who are both tolerant and outward looking. We have a full assembly programme and a wide range of enrichment opportunities and events, giving students the opportunities to learn about themselves, our community and the wider environment.

There is a strong emphasis on community and fundraising, aiming to develop awareness of personal commitment and the needs of others.

We support our students in a number of ways:

  • Inclusion Team  – is a specific area where more personalised learning, support and appropriate interventions can be put in place for targeted students.
  • Mentoring – a number of staff have a mentoring role and work on such areas as motivation, self-esteem, and organisation with individual students and groups.
  • School nurse – sees students at our request or at the request of other agencies e.g. Children’s Services – this could be to discuss dietary issues for example.
  • Art Therapist – sees students following a referral from the Pastoral Team.
  • Independent Careers Adviser –  advising students throughout the year.

We also access a number of external agencies to support our students.
