At Trinity High School and Sixth Form Centre, we firmly believe that all children, irrespective of their starting point, are entitled to a broad and ambitious curriculum. To that end, we are delighted to offer an innovative and knowledge-rich curriculum, which enables every student to fulfil their potential and develop the all-important skills and qualities, which will help them to realise their talents and create their futures.
Our curriculum delivers vital subject knowledge which is complemented by an exceptional Broadening Horizons Programme which has been specifically designed to allow students to develop wider skills and attributes and develop their mastery of the world around them.
The curriculum is designed to give all students the opportunity to develop as enquiring individuals who feel valued and respected, so that they, in turn, learn to value those around them.
On this page you will find our Curriculum Statement of Intent and Curriculum Overview for our current curriculum model. This is complemented by an insight into our Personal Development Curriculum which supports the wider development of the whole child.
We operate a curriculum model with a broad and balanced Year 9 curriculum and then a two-year Key Stage Four programme. These programmes of study have been carefully crafted to ensure that they go beyond the requirements set out by the National Curriculum.
At the end of Year 9, students opt for subjects that they will study in Years 10 and 11 and they complete those subjects by the end of Year 11. Our highly flexible two-year curriculum delivered in Years 10 and 11 allows us to create personalised guided pathways for our students.
Our Personal Development Curriculum underpins our school culture and prepares students for life in modern Britain through the teaching of responsibility, respect, tolerance and acceptance in everything we do.

We shall achieve this by:
