From Head of P.E, Ms Barrett: “Last Friday our U16 boys’ basketball team took on Nottingham Academy in the quarter final of the English school Basketball competition. We played with passion and determination to beat them 50-48, despite struggling with injuries in the final quarter. Our boys have now booked their place in the semi final with another home draw against St Bonaventures from London. Well done boys, keep it up TEAM TRINITY! You are able to keep updated with all our daily sports news and results on our PE Twitter page, please follow us to keep updated with the latest action.” #letsgotrinity
Miss Gocher recently took ten KS3 musicians to Z-Arts to participate in the National Orchestra for All North West workshop day. The students played three different pieces of music for dance along with musicians from Carr Hill School, Preston, Oasis Academy, Media City, and The Radclyffe School in Chadderton. They composed their own piece of improvised music about a fish and a pigeon, and learned how to explore their instruments in a less conventional way! Not only was their playing outstanding, but their contributions to the day and interactions with other students were exemplary. Well done to all involved!
Following the workshop, we receive a very positive message from the Head of Music from the Radclyffe School in Chaddeton, who worked alongside our students and staff:
“I would like to express my sincerest congratulations to the pupils and staff from your school who were an absolute joy to work with. Our students really enjoyed getting to know students from Trinity and it was a pleasure to watch them perform together. I was thoroughly impressed with the respectful manner in which pupils behaved and their conduct is a clear testament to the dedication and commitment of Miss Gocher who attended with them. We would like to thank the students and staff from the Music Department for sharing such a lovely experience with us and we look forward to future opportunities.”
The above photos show our students at the ever popular World Book Day Quiz, that took place last week, with numerous teams hoping to take home the trophy!

The Easter holidays will begin for students at the end of the day on Friday, 23rd March, 2018, with a normal finish time of 3.15pm. The school will re-open on Monday, 9th April, 2018.
...our Year 7s have still been busy building Churches! On Monday, I was asked by Ms Cartwright to award 1st, 2nd, 3rd and 4th places to the best Churches in 7BLW. As you can see from the photo below, there was a great range of impressive Churches, so it was a tough decision to make!
