Our monthly Eucharist services are held in the main hall and follow the Anglican tradition. Our most recent service, the ‘End of Year Eucharist’, was led by Rev Simon Gatenby, Rector of Brunswick Parish Church. The reading was taken from John Chapter 15, verses 12-17, focusing on “Love one another”. The message was that, despite the challenges of change, we are all loved by God. The hymn was the timely ‘You Shall Go Out With Joy’, supplemented by the final words;
“Go in peace to love and serve the Lord.”

Last week, the school timetable was put on hold to enable all year groups to be involved in ‘Activities Week’, and this weeks newsletter tries to summarise and illustrate the broad range of opportunities available. In addition, there were two educational excursions to Paris (French and mathematics), the Duke of Edinburgh’s Award Scheme expedition and a Christian Retreat in Taize. Year 10s sampled “the world of work” with five days work experience. This week, students of I.T visit Switzerland and France. For everyone else, though, back to lessons as the normal timetable resumes for the final two weeks of the school year.
Last week was quite a nostalgic time for our Year 11 students as they completed their eleven years of “compulsory” education. Six years at primary school followed by five at high school creates many memorable moments and these were recalled and celebrated at the Year 11 “Prom” on Wednesday evening, followed by the Year 11 Final Assembly on Thursday afternoon. We offer all our students best wishes for future success; those leaving and those returning to the Trinity Sixth Form in September, 2016. Our aim, as always, is to try our best to ensure that our students develop into “articulate, confident and well qualified citizens of the world.”
Last Wednesday, the first of our Year 10 students sampled life in the Trinity Sixth Form by attending a number of post 16 style lessons in the Sixth Form Centre. The rest of the year group attended similar lessons on Wednesday and Friday of this week. The lessons were delivered in “core” subjects such as English, mathematics, science and religious education. In addition, the students had their break and lunchtime in the Centre, were able to use the Sixth Form basketball courts and spend time becoming familiar with the facilities on offer. A great introduction to what we believe is a great facility for students of Trinity Church of England High School.
