Parental Bulletin



Dear Parents and Carers

Thank you once again for your support this week. In this Headteacher’s update, I would like to share some very important dates for your diary;

Firstly, on Monday 5th December, we will be holding our first ever EXCELLENCE FOR ALL reward assemblies. It is a chance for parents/carers to come into school and join us in recognising your son/daughter’s achievements this term. Invite letters for students who have reached house point milestones will go out on Monday. We really hope you can join us.

We then have our THREE-WEEK ATTENDANCE CHALLENGE between Monday 28th November and Friday 16th December, where there are amazing prizes to be won for students with the best and most improved attendance records in the last three weeks of term. Please can parents and carers support us by ensuring that students attend every day on the last three weeks. Students will only be eligible for the big draw if they attend on the last day of term as that is when the prizes will be drawn.

Finally, we hope that our Year 11 students attend the PASSPORT TO SUCCESS practice sessions next Wednesday and Thursday in the numbers that they did this week. The students and sixth form helpers have been a credit to themselves, and we are so grateful for their commitment to their exam practice.

Next week we have lots of things to look forward to, careers events, trips out to various events, Year 12 Parents’ Evening and the Duke of Edinburgh Bronze and Silver practice walk amongst many other Extra Curricular clubs to enjoy. Life is never dull at Trinity!

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

Mr Ford



Can parent/carers remind their sons/daughters not to check their phones during lesson times. In the event you do need to text your child they should only check their phones at breaktimes or lunchtime. Otherwise, this could result in detentions being issued.


There is a lot happening within Careers for the school next week. We have the launch and relaunch of Unifrog our online careers provision for all Years. Employability Skills Workshop for Year 10 on Thursday with 3 different workshops looking at online resources, CV writing, expectations within the workplace and Interview skills.

Then on Friday we have the Careers Fair happening with over 30 exhibitors. All the students will have an allotted time to browse the stands and ask questions of the exhibitors. We have universities, colleges, training providers, apprenticeship providers, armed forces and employers attending.


The Year 12 Parents’ Evening will take place on Thursday 1st December in the Dining Hall.  All appointments, this year, are made using the Trinity High School website. Please visit our website, click on the three horizontal lines (top right-hand side), select “Parents and Students” and then “Parents’ Evening”, log in and it will guide you to the relevant Parents’ Evening in order for you to book your slot. Slots range from 4.00 – 6.30pm. Alternatively please use this link:

In our drive to broaden our vocabulary, please find our new T2 Workable Word of the week – ‘LABOUR’ – The word ‘labour’ is used to describe work.

It usually means work which is physically hard or tiring, but of course one person’s opinion about what type of work is hard differs from person to person.

You think school is hard ‘labour’? Wait till you get a job!

It can be used as a noun and a verb.

Here are some ways you could use the word:

“The price of fixing your car includes spare parts, labour and VAT.” (noun)

“The chefs laboured from morning till night to get the food ready for the party.” (verb)

Where does it come from?

Middle English: from Old French labour (noun), labourer (verb), both from Latin labor ‘toil, trouble’
