Trinity is a growing, non-denominational Christian free school based in Sevenoaks, Kent. We are a single academy trust which operates under the sponsorship of 30 local churches in the Sevenoaks area. Trinity was founded in 2013 by a committed group of local people, many of whom are governors of the school. We moved into our state-of-the-art building in September 2016 with years 7,8,9 and 10 (470 students). At full capacity we will accommodate 790 - 840 students, including our new Sixth Form, which opened in September 2018. We are a 11-18, non-selective, mixed school with four forms of entry and we attract many pupils who reach the standard to pass the 11 Plus. Half the intake have a faith reference.
Parents, staff and students describe the school as a truly special place to work, teach and learn. The culture is supportive, challenging and every member of the Trinity team has high standards and expectations and strives for excellence in every aspect of school life.
Our vision and values permeate everything we do and this is demonstrated by our extremely well-behaved students right through to our flourishing co-curricular programme. High quality teaching, coupled with outstanding pastoral care, ensures that our students have every opportunity to fulfil their potential.
Teachers are well supported and developed through our CPD programme. Our state-of-the-art building has excellent, spacious facilities, well-resourced classrooms and designated staff work rooms. There is ample on-site staff parking, and a staff free duty lunch.
As a Christian school, we promote the Trinity Way in all we do: Truth, Excellence, Love, Leadership and Service. We believe that in doing so, students are well placed to grow into confident, outward focused individuals who live rewarding and purposeful lives. We hold unswervingly to a belief that every Trinity student should receive an education for life in all its fullness;.
Students at Key Stage 3 follow a broad, balanced curriculum and are allocated extra time for English and Maths. Our focus on these subjects, together with our rigorous attention to individual student performance, helps students to achieve the highest possible grades so that all of our students have the opportunity to take the English Baccalaureate at Key Stage 4.
At Key Stage 4 we offer a personalised curriculum, working together with students and parents, to ensure that students are following a Key Stage 4 programme of study that is wholly appropriate to their needs. The option blocks at Key Stage 4 are intended to facilitate this and all students are encouraged to consider taking the English Baccalaureate. The curriculum allows students to progress at the appropriate rate in all subject areas.
We are delighted to have opened our new Sixth Form in September 2018, with the capacity to accommodate 190 students. A variety of pathways are on offer. We are offering seventeen subjects, which includes nine facilitating subjects, a group of subjects that are frequently required for entry to degree courses, typically courses that run at Russell Group universities. In addition, we have a further eight subjects that are also academic and some with a creative learning.
