Partnerships

Valued partners

We recognise the importance of forming strong relationships with organisations in the community, which can benefit all.

Our partnerships provide valuable opportunities for our students to experience life outside of the classroom and broaden their perspectives. Whether connecting with older people in our partner care homes, leading activity for local primary schools or fundraising and volunteering for our chosen charities. Partnerships can help strengthen our community as a whole. Find out more below.

Trinity Primary School Partners

At Trinity we understand the impact of an exceptional education in helping young people fulfil their future potential. Trinity has always ensured, through a programme of bursaries, scholarships and local primary school outreach, that access to outstanding educational experiences is available to children from all backgrounds.  

Drawing on our long history of working with primary schools in our locality we have launched a new Trinity Primary School Partners initiative. We aim to work closely with this small group of primary schools to deepen the impact of our partnership work. We’ll do this by building stronger relationships with different teachers across the school and working together to identify how Trinity can complement their current provision.  

Pupils from Trinity Primary School Partners will have access to engaging activities across the curriculum and throughout the year, as well as being able to enjoy the facilities we are lucky enough to be able to share.  

We’ll form stronger relationships with the highly skilled teachers in our partner schools by facilitating free professional development, offering tailored advice from our subject specialists and curating professional links.   

In turn, our Trinity students will benefit from working with the staff and students from our partner schools with ample opportunities for them to engage in leadership activities such as helping to run our popular Festival of Rugby. 

We hope that by working together, students at our partner primary schools may be inspired to apply to Trinity, or schools like us, and seek the available support they need to do so.

Trinity Malawi Project

Our Malawi Project supports charity Hope4Malawi through fundraising and volunteering for our partnership school in Chipwepwete, which a team of our staff and students visit each year to teach, to get involved with community work.

In January 2015 we made a commitment to provide free school lunches to each child at Chipwepwete. Its impact is life changing and it costs just £15 per child for the whole year.

We have also built three new classrooms and resourced a kitchen and a library. Most recently, we helped to build a bridge across the local river to enable children and the community to travel safely. You can find out more about the history of our involvement in the project by viewing this short film. 

Hope4Malawi was founded by Trinity parents Sara and Mark Goodman. The charity helps schools and orphanages in Malawi provide a better life for the children in their care.

We recently launched our Malawi Christmas Appeal 2022. Please join with us if you can and make a significant difference by donating via our JustGiving page.

1500 children at local primary schools take part in Trinity sports

Sports Programme

The sports team provides specialist staff who deliver sessions within local primary schools and we also bring groups to Trinity in order for them to access our facilities, whilst hosting tournaments across a wide range of sports – some of which enable disabled children and children with SEND to have sporting opportunities. We also design and host free CPD courses across a range of sports which provide technical and tactical learning as well as ideas for games, practices, skills and warm ups/cool downs.

Trinity provides a robust Leadership programme enabling students to learn how to coach and can gain qualifications in sports officiating. These Young Leaders regularly assist in the delivery of community sport sessions, coaching sessions at borough events and they officiate at numerous sports events such as London Youth Games qualifying events, IAPS events and London tournaments for rugby, hockey, cricket and football.

The Rowdown Foundation

We are delighted to be working with the Rowdown Foundation, which is connecting us to children whose potential we can help realise.

Rowdown is situated in New Addington, an area of South London with high levels of social deprivation. There are many able boys and girls in our area who will thrive at an academically selective school, and we want to engender the belief in parents of any means that a place at Trinity can be for them. Widening access will make our school a better school for all. 

The Rowdown Foundation’s Tuition Programme was established to help the most academically able pupils at the school prepare for 11+ entrance exams for private, grammar or semi-selective state schools in order to maximise parental choice. We provide two hours of lessons in Maths and English on a Saturday morning to pupils from New Addington schools, including Fairchildes, Castle Hill, Applegarth, and Rowdown.

Ultimately, Trinity is a school for children from every walk of life and this economic and social diversity has a profound effect on the people our students become.

Trinity Triathlon

It is with great sadness that we have decided to cease running the Trinity Triathlon.

We have had 10 fantastic events, and seen thousands of competitors enjoy, compete and even be introduced to triathlon. From toddlers to future Olympians, we hope that everyone who took part enjoyed their experience at Trinity.

We would like to thank everyone who helped make the event what it was, especially, Crystal Palace Triathletes who provided experience and expertise, Croydon Council and teams who supported us in closing the road to give a unique experience, DBmax for all their expertise in the timing, Trinity School and staff for giving up their time and facilities for the event, the local residents for accepting the disruption, parents for supporting and of course all of the competitors for making the whole thing worthwhile.

An extra special thanks goes to Rob Brookman, the man who set the event in motion and has been there every step of the way. All of those who have ever been involved in the Trinity Triathlon are truly grateful to you.

If you are on this page looking for details because you want to compete in triathlon, please go to the British Triathlon pages to see what is available. We hope that you find something near you to get involved in.

Kind regards and good luck,
The Trinity Triathlon Team
