I am delighted to welcome you to Trinity Academy and to tell you more about what we believe sets us apart. Brixton, Clapham, Herne Hill, Battersea, Balham, Tooting, Streatham and other nearby districts. Founded in September 2014, we are an 11-18 co-educational, state-funded, non-selective school, in South West London, drawing our pupils from a very wide catchment area and now have pupils in all years from First Form (Year 7) through to our Sixth Form, which opened in 2020 with the first cohort of Year 12 students.

Trinity Academy’s distinctive ethos is rooted in our clear and timeless values of wisdom, fairness, courage and self-discipline. As part of the outstanding Future Academies family of schools, Trinity Academy’s prime focus is on setting and achieving aspirational and rigorous educational standards. To that end, we offer pupils of all abilities a style of education based on academic rigour more usually found in grammar schools or the independent sector.

We take learning seriously and base our teaching on the science behind it. Exemplary knowledge-rich teaching and learning drives everything we do and is underpinned by what is proven to work best in the classroom, using resources exclusively developed by the Future Academies Curriculum Centre. Trinity teachers are highly qualified and passionate subject specialists who take part in on-going professional development to develop their expertise further. Our class sizes are kept small with a maximum of 26 pupils so that teachers and form tutors can closely monitor every pupil’s academic and pastoral progress and personal development.

Our broad and deep curriculum is strongly grounded in the academic Ebacc subjects and is complemented by the study of Latin and an exceptionally full range of creative subjects (art, music, drama and food & nutrition) in Year 7 and beyond. We focus across the curriculum on grammar and vocabulary in order to develop our pupils’ full powers of written and spoken expression and self-confidence. Our Sixth Form offers the full range of academic A levels, including economics and psychology, that all lead to degree-level study at top universities.

We believe that education is about more than just preparation for the world of work; an excellent, rounded education is valuable in itself and brings with it the all-empowering cultural capital. We therefore ensure that all our pupils take part in a wide range of enrichment activities and educational trips to develop their creative, sporting, intellectual and cultural abilities and interests.

Trinity provides a welcoming, safe and stimulating learning environment for all its pupils. Our pastoral care and pupil wellbeing provision, where every pupil is known and nurtured as an individual, are integral to this rounded, holistic approach to education. Our explicitly high expectations around routines and pupil conduct ensure that precious time in school is valued and everyone is treated with respect. The highest standards of conduct are expected of everyone and visitors often comment on the prevailing purposeful and orderly atmosphere.

With easy access by public transport and a fair admissions policy, Trinity pupils travel from across south London (including Clapham, Brixton, Herne Hill, Streatham, Tooting, Tulse Hill, Balham, Stockwell, Vauxhall and Battersea) and in the spirit of full inclusivity we welcome pupils of all faiths or non.
