Teaching School Alliance



Trinity CE High School was established in Manchester in 1984. We are situated alongside the main campus of the University of Manchester on Higher Cambridge Street.

Trinity was designated as outstanding by OFSTED in January 2014. It was then designated as outstanding by the National Society Inspection (SIAMS) in 2016.

We became a Teaching School in 2016 and are part of the Teach Manchester Teaching School Alliance.

We want to share our good practice and expertise with you in the coming months. This booklet provides you with information about what is presently on offer.

We will be further developing and expanding our range of CPD opportunities in the future.
