Headteacher's Welcome


Trinity Academy is a unique school with the highest aspirations for young people. We opened in 2019 and were immediately oversubscribed as families resonated with our vision for being a  centre of teaching excellence, a place where students are deeply cared for and our focus on the co-curricular, particularly music and the performing arts. 

Learning is central to all we do and  working closely with our sister school, Bristol Cathedral Choir School, we ensure that even though we are a new school, our students make at least as good progress as those at the Cathedral Choir School. We’ve assembled a team of expert teachers, many from some of the highest performing schools in the country, all with a passion to develop their own teaching so that all students at Trinity make outstanding progress.

Caring deeply for each other is not something that happens by accident and we have worked hard to create a culture where students can feel totally safe and happy. We have a reward culture which seeks to ‘catch students getting it right’ and an inter-tutor group competition to see who can amass the most tutor points. We believe that structure liberates and so our behaviour policy is very clear and consistent.

I love seeing the joy on young people’s faces as they participate in the rich offer of co-curricular clubs. All students attend 3 clubs a week of their choice where they get to try new things, are challenged and stretched and deepen relationships with each other and with staff.

We believe in high challenge and high support at Trinity for all in our community in learning (Head), in relationships (Heart) and in the co-curricular (Soul). If this is the ethos you would like for your child, do look at our admissions material on the admissions page, also have a browse through the yr 7 induction material to see how we encourage young people to ‘Step up to Trinity’ and if you have any questions please do not hesitate to get in touch.


If you have any questions or you would like to visit the school please do email: enquiries@trinityacademybristol.org or telephone: 0117 4509379
