Knowledge-rich curriculum at Trinity Academy

The transition from primary to secondary school is a big step in a child’s educational journey and every parent wants to find the school that will welcome their child and enable them to thrive and be successful from day one.

Trinity Academy’s distinctive ethos is rooted in our clear and timeless values of knowledge, aspiration and respect.

As part of the Future Academies family of schools, we believe that a great education changes lives and should be accessible to all.

Our school motto “Libertas per Cultum” expresses our fundamental belief in the value of learning and the idea that an excellent education is transformative in opening up opportunities and widening horizons.

Trinity Academy is “ambitious for all pupils to achieve highly.” (Ofsted, June 2022)

We have high expectations for all our students at Trinity Academy.

We carefully select everything we teach and the order in which it is taught using a range of bespoke, scholarly textbooks designed by subject experts at the Future Academies Curriculum Centre.

Trinity Academy has “an aspirational curriculum for all pupils.” (Ofsted, June 2022)

We make sure that in every subject we start by putting the essential foundational knowledge in place in Year 7: for example, studying grammar and reading classic texts such as the Odyssey and Beowulf underpins pupils’ work in Year 7 English.

Engaging with challenging material and new subjects such as Latin through accessible and fascinating topics (life in Roman London; gladiators; Roman food) stretches our pupils and develops their confidence as learners.

Trinity Academy teachers have “strong subject knowledge.” (Ofsted, June 2022)

To teach a ‘knowledge-rich curriculum’ effectively, a school needs teachers who are subject specialists and who have studied their subject to degree level.

For example, in every Trinity maths classroom, students are taught by qualified maths teachers.

All our teachers hold top degrees from leading universities, so they are true subject experts in the classroom able to inspire pupils’ curiosity and guide them towards achieving their own future academic success.

Our holistic approach: enrichment and pastoral support Education at Trinity goes beyond the academic side of school life.

The many co-curricular opportunities on offer bring cultural capital, experience of the wider world and skills such as teamwork and leadership through attending clubs and societies, playing in sports teams and going on trips; all of these are usually paid for by the school to remove barriers and maximise participation.

Pastoral education and support are the third strand of a Trinity education, which ensures pupils from Year 7 start to learn wider life skills and the knowledge needed to make informed choices.

Every child has a tutor who oversees their pastoral and academic progress.
