Welcome to Trinity All Through School
The journey of transformation at Trinity continued this September with the opening of our Primary phase on the Ennersdale Road site. Sixty 4 year-olds joined us in the re-furbished building that we last occupied when we were Northbrook School. We are now a split site 4 -16 school.
Trinity has been on a process of transformation since it was Northbrook. A new name and new buildings are just some of the more obvious signs of all that is different. Northbrook was one of the lowest performing schools in Lewisham and now pupils at Trinity make more progress in learning than at any other school in the borough. Under-subscribed until three years ago Trinity is now an oversubscribed school with pupils applying for open places in some bands last year needing to live just 0.7 miles away or closer.
Six years ago Northbrook was judged by Oftsed to be Satisfactory; three years ago the school was declared Good and just a year ago as Outstanding in a Business and Enterprise subject inspection.
People who visit say we are 'No Ordinary School'. We describe ourselves as Lewisham's 'only grammar style school'. Trinity reflects the diversity of Lewisham and has an intake with well over the national average of pupils receiving the Pupil Premium, yet pupils attain well over the national average.
Trinity is different because:
- we are a strongly Christian school
- As a Woodard school we share close links with top independent schools
- Restorative Justice underpins all we do
- Mindfulness meditation creates a calm, focussed, working environment
- we are a small, traditional school based on the model of the human family
- the Trinity taxonomy of learning enables all pupils to succeed
Being an inclusive community is essential to who we are. People of all faiths and none are welcome at the Trinity table.
I am proud to be Executive Headteacher of Trinity All Through School, in my six years so far living and working in Lewisham I have come to love this amazing place and community. I am proud to be an Assistant Priest at Saint Mary's, the ancient Parish Church of the whole of Lewisham. I am glad to share the leadership of our school with Headteacher Secondary, Dr Rachael Norman and the senior staff, as well as our Governing Body and all the members of our community.
