VOLUME 34, NUMBER 39
What a week! Our Year 7 participated in a range of arts activities, both in school and at the Z-Arts centre, culminating in two showcases on Friday. Year 8s had a day at the beach, a climbing centre and spent 3 days/2 nights in the Peak District, challenged by a range of activities including cycling and water sports. ‘Enterprise’ was the theme for our Year 9s who had the chance to build their own business and sell their creations at a ‘marketplace’ in the school playground on Friday. Our Year 10s had their eyes opened to the world of work on various successful work placements. Year 12 students learnt about the UCAS process and had the opportunity to visit Lancaster and Keele universities. My thanks go to all those leading these incredible range of activities.
...here are some more photos taken from activities week.
This week sees the launch of our new ‘dynamic’ school website. Our previous website literally dates from the last millennia and although it’s been kept updated, we are well overdue a new model! The website address is the same, www.trinityhigh.com Any feedback from visitors is appreciated.
Encouraging a healthy diet is a parental and school responsibility. We ask parents who are paying for school lunches to put money directly into your child’s ParentPay account rather than cash – this means that students don’t buy crisps, biscuits or ‘fast food’ rather than a nutritious midday meal.
If you’ve been on a school tour, you will know that we have a selection of excellent food to cater for all tastes. Next year, our Catering Manager is starting to implement a plan to significantly reduce the use of ‘disposable plastics’ – an initiative which is a direct response to student concerns.
School meals next year are £2.40 per day.
Recommendation of Trinity through word of mouth is really important. With your child’s report this year, we have included a copy of the new prospectus for you to pass on to a friend or relative who may be considering applying for a place in the future. We hope you enjoy the read.
The new academic year for students begins on Tuesday, 4th September, 2018. The return to school times for each year group are as follows:
Year 12 and 13 students report to the Sixth Form Centre at 10.30am.
In addition to this special last edition of the 2017/18 school newsletter, please find enclosed leaflets containing important information about school uniform and the ‘MyEd’ app.
...what a year! When I think back through the 38 editions of the newsletter this year, I am thankful to all of the staff and the students who make the school a great place to both work and learn. My personal highlights were the ‘outstanding’ Sixth Form Ofsted judgement, the Royal visit and the pi competition!
Additionally, I would like to thank all the parents and carers who day in, day out, support and encourage their children and whose efforts contribute to make this school such an outstanding place. Wishing you all a very happy summer break - see you in September.
