Co-curricular clubs form a central part of the Trinity experience. These are opportunities to learn, have fun, find your ‘spark’ and develop the skills that universities and employers are telling us young people are lacking. Students attend three clubs a week and, as with all school activities, we expect full commitment, effort and attendance. At the beginning of every term, students choose from a wide range of options – these include (but are not limited to) art, drama, orchestra, rugby, choir, board games, dance, football, book club, netball and volleyball.
This term we are offering:
