SMSC

The Spiritual, Moral, Social, & Cultural aspect of Trinity High School

At Trinity High School, we recognise that the personal development of our students plays a significant part in their ability to learn and achieve their full potential. In essence SMSC is how we help young people to develop a sense of identity, and relate meaningfully to the world around them. For this reason, the Spiritual, Moral, Social, and Cultural (SMSC) enrichment of our students is at the heart of the school’s ethos and is embedded across the curriculum, pastoral programme, house system, enrichment activities, visits, trips and assemblies.

We aim to provide an education that provides students with opportunities to ‘shine’ in any way they can and enables them to explore their own:

  • Values and beliefs
  • Spiritual awareness
  • Personal behaviour
  • Positive and caring attitude towards others
  • Understanding of their social and cultural roots
  • Understanding of our school culture and community
  • An understanding of what it means to British
  • An appreciation of the diversity and richness of other cultures

“Children with higher levels of emotional, behavioural, social and school well-being on average have higher levels of academic achievement and are more engaged in school, both concurrently and in later years”
