Trinity School Information:
Trinity School is a coeducational, day and boarding school in Teignmouth in the South West of England. We are renowned for our outstanding pastoral care, which complements excellent academic successes and varied extra-curricular provision.
Academic Programmes: It’s this combination that ensures our pupils become well-equipped and rounded individuals, ready for life outside of and after their time at Trinity. 94% of all A Levels and BTECs taken at Trinity in Summer 2019 achieved A*-C grades or equivalent, with over 50% receiving A* or A. At the end of Sixth Form our variety of destinations for our Leavers is equally impressive. In recent years pupils have gained places at Oxford, Cambridge, UCL and other Russel group universities to study a wide range of subjects ranging from dentistry to engineering to mathematics. We also have significant success in assisting students gain places at universities around the world. What is vital to our success is the Individual Approach we take towards our students so that they can be the best version of themselves and reach their goals. It’s not just outside of the classroom where Trinity School succeeds. Last year marked one of the best years of participation in national Independent School Association competitions, with the national award for work in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths) subjects coming as a result of hard work by pupils, staff, and other members of the Trinity community. The school was recognized for its Science Buskers club, which has grasped the imagination and curiosity of many pupils by taking part in experiments and bringing science to the wider community at other schools and external events.
ฺBoarding: Our two boarding houses, Chapel House for junior boarders and MD Halls for Sixth Form boarders, are home to pupils from the UK and all over the world. We have options for short term boarders as well as being home to boarders for many years. The integration with the day pupils, many who live locally to the school, mean that boarders enjoy an international community as well as making good friend with English pupils and families.
Sport: The coastal setting creates a whole host of opportunities for pupils to learn in and enjoy their natural surroundings. The school site overlooks the town and offers glorious views of the sea, which means pupils regularly get involved in various water-based activities throughout the year including sailing and canoeing. A vast extra-curricular offer means full use is made of the school’s short distance away from Dartmoor (a UK National Park), with participation in outdoor education and camping activities very much encouraged. The facilities onsite are equally impressive and include a tennis academy, outdoor heated swimming pool and large sports fields.
