Trinity is a Catholic school. We were founded, built, developed and sustained to reflect the life and teaching of Christ in his Church. We are not ashamed of this nor do we see it as a matter of apology or debate – the Catholicity of our school lies at the core of our very existence and our vision for the whole school is based on the following aims:-
1. To evangelize, develop and confirm the teaching of Christ and his Church. Of course this begs the question “What is a Catholic?” Perhaps the best definition of a Catholic is someone who believes in and lives by the Eucharist. Accordingly the sacrifice of the Mass and the involvement in the Eucharistic celebration must lie at the heart of the Catholic life.
2. To emphasize and develop the Eucharistic life of the school and every individual in our community by placing the Mass and the Eucharist at the centre of our communal and individual life.
3. To sustain and reflect this teaching in every aspect of school organization.
4. To be a happy, pleasant, harmonious community.
5. To make us enjoy learning, studying, the pursuit of knowledge and the world of books.
6. To present a curriculum which will develop and enrich each individual.
7. To enable us to learn more about ourselves, the good and not so good.
8. To enable us, after trying as hard as we can, to be proud of what we achieve at whatever level.
9. To develop a sense of responsibility in each of us for other individuals irrespective of race, religion or gender.
10. To form a Christian community, to feel part of it and care for it.
11. To be aware that our community is linked with others be it the family, the Parish, the local/national community. We must be aware of our responsibility to all of these and to ask what we can do for them rather than what they can do for us.
12. To enable us to develop the talents we have for the benefits of ourselves and others.
13. To implement the recommendations arising out of our outstanding Ofsted Inspection of March 2006.
