Thank you for your interest in working at Trinity. Ranked 23rd Independent Secondary School nationally by the Sunday Times, Trinity is a special place to work and this derives, in part, from a kind and purposeful approach in all that we do. The Independent Schools Inspectorate judged us ‘Excellent’ in both areas of focus in a recent inspection.
Staff benefits include a Pension Scheme, BUPA Cash Plan, staff fee remissions, free lunches and free membership of Sports Club. Full details can be found here.
Teachers and support staff at Trinity enjoy a welcoming, comfortable and well-resourced environment. Our teaching is well researched and well evaluated, with professional development embedded into everything we do. We want our students to feel challenged and to approach difficulties with positivity and resilience, knowing that they are well supported.
Academic standards are consistently high, placing Trinity amongst the most successful schools in the UK. But, along with high academic standards, we believe that success comes in many different forms and seek out students with talents in specific areas such as Music, Art, Drama and Sport.
The School is divided into the Lower School (Years 6 to 8), Middle School (Years 9 to 11) and the Sixth Form. Most students in the Sixth Form study three or four subjects to A Level, while our Diploma programme helps students to engage in independent research and prepare for future pathways. To ensure that our students are stimulated and their potential fulfilled, we aim to teach “beyond the syllabus” while our co-curricular programme offers breadth and depth.
Our success has been on a consistently upward trajectory in recent years thanks in large part to exceptional teachers and teaching, and our supportive community.
We recognise that professional development is important for all staff at Trinity, it is our aim to support, encourage and role model positivity, resilience and a
focus on life-long learning for everyone in our school community.
We aim to support unqualified teachers as soon as they are appointed, giving them everything they need to become successful and effective teachers in their
subject areas. This programme is four years long, covering an unqualified year, PGCE (+ QTS) and two years as an ECT; presently all fully funded.
A year-long programme, delivered in collaboration with another local independent school. The course includes 1:1 coaching, a sustained change management project and a mixture of face-to-face
and online workshops delivered by external speakers and in-school experts.
A year-long programme available from September 2023, the aim is to support middle leaders with the move to senior leadership roles by providing experience in whole school impact projects and participation in skill-based seminars. Again, with coaching, external speakers and in-school experts.
We have a variety of opportunities for staff to contribute to the policy making and culture of both academic and pastoral provisions within the school. To name a few, we have: Teaching and Learning Steering Committee, Digital Learning Programme (whole staff in-school CPD), working groups and we actively support teachers with conducting practitioner inquiries and action research.
We invest heavily in our professional development programmes – time, experience, and funding. This includes our Sustained CPD Programme which provides financial support for external courses which require sustained commitment from staff, such courses include: Masters Degrees, Sports Coaching, DELF training and life coaching.
