About us

Trinity Academy opened in 2019 as a Free School and part of the Cathedral Schools Trust. It’s first cohort had 120 students, serving the North Bristol area with a few students coming from South Gloucestershire. We spent our first two years sharing a site with Stoke Park Primary School until September 2021, when we moved into our £25 million new building. The school is proud of its diverse community, it’s cutting edge teaching and learning, its outcomes and it’s amazing facilities.

Cathedral Schools Trust (CST) was established as a multi-academy trust in 2016. The trust currently includes the following schools:

  • Trinity Academy
  • Bristol Cathedral Choir School
  • St Katherine's School
  • Headley Park Primary School
  • Stoke Park Primary School
  • Cathedral Primary School
  • Victoria Park Primary School
  • Hotwells Primary School
  • St Werburgh's Primary School

Cathedral Schools Trust hopes to create a community of learning that embraces teachers, students and their families, so that all can learn from one another.  We value diversity and encourage excellence and believe that strong and trusting relationships are at the heart of good education. We hope that students will be full of hope and a force for good in the world. Music will play an important role in the life of our schools, enhancing the sense of community via performance and celebration. The focus will be on working in partnership, with a rigorous but collegiate approach to support and challenge school leaders, staff and governors.  The trust will support and build leadership and management capacity, and it will value and encourage the continual professional learning of staff. We will always seek to improve.

Within our multi-academy trust we want every pupil to have:

- An outstanding, inspiring classroom experience

- An education tolerant of other world views and interpretations

- Access to enrichment opportunities, in particular in music and the performing arts.
