 Pastoral care

As part of the Trinity experience, students have access to a dedicated study space and a common room. The Sixth Form Tutor closely monitors all aspects of each student’s academic, pastoral and co-educational progress and achievement.

Our careers programme and support with the university application process includes 1:1 guidance. It is our expectation that students in the sixth form take part in enrichment activities such as attending specialist lectures, attending cultural events and trips to museums, galleries and theatres, as well as taking part in the Duke of Edinburgh Silver or Gold award, and participating in relevant bespoke work experience, which we assist in finding.

When a student joins Trinity Academy’s sixth form, they will be talking about their futures, careers and, ambitions from the outset. We want to make sure that each one of our students is able to achieve the ambitions they have. 

Just as with the lower school, sixth form students will be assessed regularly on their programmes. If students are not making the expected progress, they will be supported by relevant intervention. We will keep in touch with parents/guardians, supporting you and your child on their journey from childhood to adulthood.

16 to 19 tuition fund

Trinity Academy will use the 16 to 19 tuition funding in the 2021-22 academic year to provide additional tutoring for A-level maths and individual sciences to small groups of five to six students. These students are from disadvantaged backgrounds and have missed classroom-based face-face teaching during the pandemic.
