We acknowledge that students come to Trinity High School from a wide range of backgrounds ranging from privileged to disadvantaged. As such there will be a wide variance in the experiences that they have had when they join us in Year Nine. It is our mission to create well-rounded individuals who will be proactive citizens making a positive contribution to society in Modern Britain. We will achieve this through providing a wide range of experiences to all students, regardless of background, within the Cultural Capital programme. All students in Years Nine and Ten will take part in one Cultural Capital event or visit per term during the school year. Details of our current schedule of events for each year group follow below;

A performance of ‘A Christmas Carol’ in our own school hall, staged by Quantum Theatre, a professional touring theatre company. This is a hugely valuable opportunity for students to experience a live performance of one of their GCSE set texts. This links with our character values by developing creativity and wisdom.

The chance to hear a symphony orchestra in full flight at the City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra’s Schools’ concert in the world class Birmingham Symphony Hall.
