Trinity Farewells

At the end of each academic year, it is inevitable that we will say farewell to members of staff at Trinity. However, this year I would like to pay particular tributes to three of Trinity’s most senior colleagues:




Mr Butt is leaving Trinity after 20 years as a Deputy Head at Trinity. Mr Butt is joining the staff of a brand new ‘alternative provision unit’ at St Paul’s Catholic High School in Wythenshawe. Mr Butt has always shown a passion and talent for supporting the most vulnerable students and I know just how much he’s looking forward to this challenge.






Mrs Flatman is retiring from her role as Deputy Head after 16 years at Trinity, but is staying on for another year as our ‘Director of Teaching School’ on a part time basis. Amongst many projects, Mrs Flatman has worked tremendously hard to secure Trinity as a teaching school and has forged a leading role in the Teach Manchester Teaching Schools Alliance.






I would like to give my thanks to Mr Butt and Mrs Flatman for their unwavering support for the school through their long service. Both colleagues have epitomised the Trinity spirit and will be greatly missed by staff, students, parents and governors. I would like to formally thank them for all they have done to shape the school and for the loyalty, integrity and proactivity they have always shown. I intend to keep their spirit alive.
We also look forward to welcoming our two new Deputy Heads to the school – Dr Chard and Ms Reynolds, who will be replacing Mr Butt and Mrs Flatman from September, 2020.



Dr Buck is retiring this year following 33 years of distinguished service to the Trinity community. After a year’s teaching at Wright Robinson High School, Dr Buck joined Trinity in 1987 and is currently the longest serving teacher at the school. Dr Buck has taken on many different challenges and roles at school; head of humanities, senior tutor, gifted and talented coordinator and for the last 12 years, she has worked as an Assistant Headteacher. Dr Buck leaves Trinity with a reputation second to none. Her personal success in the classroom unrivalled, her work as a subject leader unparalleled and her commitment to the students of this school unquestionable. Dr Buck has served this school in the most wonderful way, a truly inspirational teacher and a remarkable professional. We will all miss her.
