Parental Bulletin 23.9.22



Dear Parents and Carers

Thank you once again for your support with ensuring our slightly shorter school week has been successful. In all aspects of school life, our students continue to impress, and I am delighted with their conduct and work productivity. This week we finally got to take our students to London Zoo as part of our activities week. We were determined to run the trip and ensure they continue to enjoy being part of the Trinity community outside the classroom. In a few weeks we will be holding our Open Week on the week beginning Monday 10th October. This is an opportunity for prospective parents and students to visit the school either during the working day or on our Open Evening on Thursday 13th October. I would like to extend an invite to current parents who perhaps didn’t get to visit the school during the pandemic to meet us during this week too. We are hopeful that many of our students will support the week and act as guides and subject experts around the school.

If you would like to join us on either the mornings or the evening, please visit our website for further details.

Have a super weekend and I look forward to writing to you next week.

Mr Ford



This week several students have presented at our First Aid base with symptoms potentially caused by not eating before or during school. It would be useful if parents/carers either topped up student catering accounts or provided them with adequate food/drink for the day. If there are any issues caused by the cost of living, then please give us a call and we will be delighted to discreetly support you. There is a free breakfast club that runs each day in the Dining Hall from 8.10am for those students in need of breakfast. Please feel free to come and join us.


As part of Trinity High School’s celebrations for the European Day of Languages, the MFL Department would like to invite all parents to a Languages evening on Wednesday 28th September from 6-7pm. There will be a chance to meet the team, discuss your child’s language learning at Trinity and experience a short session in either French or Spanish with games and activities. Some French and Spanish nibbles will be on offer too! We look forward to seeing you there!


Over the last ten years, Reddit’s monthly user count has grown from 70 million to an estimated 430 million. Around two-thirds of that total are in the 18–29 age bracket, which adds up to a lot of fairly young people discussing … well, pretty much whatever they want. It’s easy to see how that environment might not always be suitable for younger users. Unsurprisingly, age-inappropriate content is therefore a common risk on Reddit, and – as this week’s #WakeUpWednesday guide explains – it’s not in isolation. Constant distracting notifications, online harassment and uninvited contact from strangers are also among the threats that young people might encounter through using Reddit. – Please see the attached poster.



Please find updated version attached.

In our drive to broaden our vocabulary, please find our new T2 Workable Word of the week – ‘BENEVOLENT’ – If you are ‘benevolent’ it means that you do something with good intentions and to be kind, not for any other motive.

A company that seeks to make money for charity rather than profits could be described as ‘benevolent’.

We use ‘benevolent’ as an adjective.

Here are some ways you could use the word:

“The rugby club were left money for new posts and equipment for the children’s teams by a benevolent former player in their will.”

“Florence Nightingale and Mary Seacole are famous benevolent nurses from history.”

Where does it come from?

Late Middle English: from Old French benivolent, from Latin bene volent- ‘well wishing’, from bene ‘well’ + velle ‘to wish’.
