Working for Trinity
In July 2013 the academy achieved an ‘Outstanding’ judgement in all areas of our Ofsted inspection and we are extremely proud of being an outstanding academy.
The students who come to Trinity Academy behave well. In our July 2013 Ofsted, inspectors reported that ‘Behaviour is outstanding, both in lessons and around the academy. Attitudes to learning are excellent’. We would encourage you to visit the academy to see for yourself how well our students behave and how they respond to our behaviour for learning systems, which focus on praising students.
In 2017, our students again achieved outstanding examination results. 71% of students achieved the governments ‘Basics’ measure in English and Maths, significantly above the national average in the new, more challenging exams. Across all subjects our students achieved impressive GCSE results. As a result our Progress 8 score increased significantly for the third year running and we are confident that when it is published by the DfE it will place us in the top 5 percent of schools nationally. At post-16 despite the significant national changes to courses and examinations, 76% of all A-Level Grades were at A*-C. These results, along with exceptional Vocational outcomes (placing the 6th Form in the top 2% of providers nationally) ensured that our post-16 provision achieved an ALPS grade 3.
As an academy we have high expectations of staff, we expect staff to challenge our students and themselves. We set high standards and aim to display these in all that we do. Working for Trinity Academy is rewarding, we can offer a fantastic vibrant environment with a record of successful outcomes, excellent CPD programmes and a range of opportunities to progress. These ambitions are shared across all schools within the trust.
As an academy we have invested in professional development and our in-house Lead Teacher team work with all curriculum areas and provide in-house training and development opportunities for all staff. Our weekly CPD session is delivered as a whole academy or in curriculum areas and is an invaluable opportunity for whole academy development or tailored sessions relevant to curriculum area needs.
As a newly qualified teacher (NQT) Trinity Academy has a specifically designed induction programme, which meets the statutory requirements of the induction year, but is purposefully designed to go above and beyond these minimal requirements. This programme ensures you have mentor support and, as an NQT, gives you access to a range of experienced professionals to support your development. As a trust there is the opportunity to share best practice and develop links with other NQTs. In addition to your appointed mentor, programmed CPD sessions and access to external training events you will have a weekly session with all NQT’s and a Lead Teacher who will develop a programme of support relevant to those new to teaching.
As an academy we have developed a unique and innovative staffing structure that enables us to provide the very best learning experience for our students. This staffing structure offers career progression, opportunities to develop and a chance to work in a number of projects and developments that are focussed on both improvements in the academy and how these can influence outcomes across whole trust.
Each member of our team makes a difference to the outcomes for our young people. All staff at the academy (whether they are teaching or non-teaching staff) are given the opportunity to be a Vertical Tutor and take part in our unique system of support for students.
Trinity Academy’s Senior Leadership Team is responsible for the day-to-day running of the academy, and ensuring that it is lead in a way that enables it to make a difference to students.
