Our House System

Trinity CofE High School’s house system was established after the 2002 Commonwealth Games which were held in Manchester.  The school wanted to capture the sense of competition and excitement that Manchester experienced during these games.  The four houses are therefore named after four commonwealth countries.  Tiger represents India, Springbok represents South Africa, Wallaby represents Australia and Maple represents Canada.

Being part of a house allows the school to recognise the fantastic achievements that happen during the school year.  It also provides students with the opportunity to participate in fun and interesting extra-curricular events and activities.  It encourages teamwork and allows students to become part of the wider Trinity community.  Being part of a house provides students with a sense of identity, meaning they are proud to represent Trinity CofE High School .

Several events and charitable campaigns run throughout the year, a list of which can be found below;

Harvest Festival Collection
Trintiy’s Big Quiz
Christmas Gift Appeal
Spelling Bee
Countdown
Sport Relief Mile Run

As well as events and campaigns students also have the opportunity to take part in Debate Mate, Eco-school project and Student Council.

House Points

Students work hard throughout the school year to earn house points which can be achieved through event participation, recycling and through the credit system.  The current champions are Tiger house but with a new school year upon us it is all to play for!

Harvest Collection

This year’s harvest collection saw students bring in enough donations to feed 2,000 people!  The items were donated to Cornerstone charity, a local homeless shelter.  A fantastic effort from all four houses!

Big Fat Quiz

This year’s Big Quiz was a great success with big turn out from all year groups.  Due to the popularity of this event we had to hold it over two days!  KS4 & 5 was held in the 6th form and as you can see everybody had a fantastic time.

Gift Appeal

The Christmas gift appeal saw a huge amount of donations with forms across the year groups creating over 90 boxes full of presents for children of all ages.  The donations were successfully delivered to Manchester Children’s Hospital. The staff at the hospital were overwhelmed with the generosity of Trinity students.

Eco-schools

The Eco-school award has been officially launched at Trinity!  House leaders delivered an assembly explaining to students about the importance of the award and why it matters that we join in- for the sake of our planet!  Eco-school is a charitable organisation that encourages students to think about the environmental impact their school has.  It provides schools with the opportunity to take part in national environmental campaigns which are often in partnership with Keep Britain Tidy.  Students are currently completing an environmental review of the school and the Eco-committee are looking forward to analysing the results!  Trinity hopes to be part of many environmental campaigns across the year- so keep your eyes on the website for any updates!

Spelling Bee

Thanks to the almost 50 contestants and many more who attended.

The winners were:

Daniel Bell (Tiger House, 10MKI) 1st place

Carmen Fyfe Paulo (Wallaby House, 10AGO) 2nd place

Rachael Odularu (Maple House, 11GSC) 3rd place

The Great British Spring Clean

The first project from eco-schools has been carried out successfully!  Miss Coxon took 14 ‘eco-warriors’ to take part in the Great British Spring Clean.  Students and staff cleared the cut through by the side of the school.  Students made a massive impact clearing over 20 bags of rubbish!  Students commented how proud they were to be making the local community look tidier and were very pleased with the improvements that were made.  Excellent effort from everybody involved!

Trinity Credits

Students can also earn Trinity Credits by participating in House Events, these can be redeemed for rewards as well as counting towards the final House Scores at the end of the year.

Students can check their current Trinity Credits balance through Moodle.
