"The newest school in Bristol yet born out of a tradition stretching back to 1542 with the foundation of Bristol Cathedral School. The emergence of this ancient establishment into one of the leading education providers in the country will now lead to the opening of Cathedral Schools Trust's Trinity Academy in September 2019.
At Trinity Academy, we aim to offer a world-class education that allows every child to achieve beyond what they thought they could – their absolute best. We believe that true education is about the whole child, learning in everything they do, in and out of the classroom to become happy, confident successful and engaged adults.
We articulate this vision by giving our community three foci: Head, Heart and Soul.
The Head - A Place of Learning: We will develop the work of Bristol Cathedral Choir School by ensuring that pupil progress is absolutely central through great teaching and engaged learning. Expert teachers will deliver a broad curriculum to develop students to have a passion for learning and to find success.
The Heart - A Place of Respect: Students will be taught to respect and care for themselves, their community and their environment and we will care for them, ensuring that all students of all abilities achieve their best because they are safe, happy and motivated. A strong emphasis will be placed on belonging to the school community. Our values are extremely important to us at every level of the school.
The Soul - A Place of Engagement: Whole child learning happens in and outside of the classroom. At Trinity Academy there will be a rich offer of co-curricular opportunities including specialist music and performing arts groups and exceptional sport. Students will find their spark and develop a confidence which will allow them to pursue any further study or employment.
I’d like to personally invite you to our open events which are on the Events tab of the website where you can hear in detail what the new school will be like. Alternatively, you could book an appointment to meet with me for drop-in sessions on 17th and 19th October 2018.
