Welcome to Trinity


We hope you find this prospectus useful and helpful in answering the questions you may have.  It sets out our aims and expectations, describes the buildings and grounds, explains the structure of our school community and gives details of the organisation of work, games and extra-curricular activities.


We believe Trinity to be a very successful school which offers high standards of education within a well-disciplined and caring environment.


The success of our school depends upon close co-operation between pupils, parents, governors and staff.  By working together we can provide the education and support that will enable our children to achieve their full potential.  We hope that you and your child will enjoy and benefit from this partnership.


You may be completely new to Trinity or a current parent.  In either case you may wish to look around the school.  You can arrange an appointment by telephoning the school office on (01983 524360)


The School Foundation


Trinity Middle School opened in 1970 and has Aided Church of England status.  It is controlled by the School Governors (the majority of whom are appointed by the Church of England) but is largely funded by the Isle of Wight Authority. It enjoys close links with local parishes.  Trinity is committed to serving the children of  churchgoing families Island-wide who hold to a Trinitarian belief.  Central to the ethos of the school are the Christian ideals of valuing every individual and caring for the needs of others.  Our ethos is summed up in the two great commandments of Christ:

“Love the Lord your God with all your heart and soul and mind” and “Love your neighbour as yourself”.


Our School


Trinity provides education with a Christian ethos for girls and boys of all abilities in the age range 9-13.  It has highly qualified, caring and experienced staff.


The ultimate purpose of our school is expressed in our mission statement: “Care and Challenge in a Christian Community”.


Trinity Middle School is purpose-built and well equipped to give the best educational opportunities to all its pupils during their middle school years.  Facilities include:


Ø       Well stocked library

Ø       Home economics room

Ø       Design technology

Ø       Art room – with kiln

Ø       Two science laboratories

Ø       Hall/gymnasium

Ø       Music room

Ø       Two computer networks

Ø       Computer in many classrooms


The school fields provide a pleasant setting for all the usual sporting activities.  Sports Day is a highlight of our year, when parents and children support their house from banking that runs beside our athletics track. Trinity is proud of its sporting reputation.  Most weeks we field clubs and teams in a wide range of sports including: netball, football, rugby, cricket, rounders, athletics and hockey.  Many of our pupils go on to represent the Isle of Wight in various competitions.


Trinity has a strong musical commitment with emphasis on involvement and enjoyment.  Most years we put on a production in a professional theatre and at Christmas we often present a musical event at churches in the community.




Trinity is organised into four year groups – each year under the care and direction of a Year Leader.  Our Head of Year 5 regularly visits the feeder primary schools in order to ensure smooth transfer for the children and continuity of the curriculum.  This also enables the Year Head to get to know the pupils, which helps when placing them into appropriate mixed ability forms.  All new pupils spend a day at Trinity before they transfer.


Together with other teachers, the Year Heads are responsible for discipline and pastoral care.  Year teams meet on a regular basis to ensure consistency of approach across teaching groups.  As pupils move up the school, they begin to benefit from teaching by subject specialists.  We are committed to the philosophy of setting pupils by ability where appropriate.


In Year 8 preparations are made for pupils to move to High School.  Detailed liaison ensures a smooth transfer and the best possible start to the next stage.  We are constantly reviewing this process to ensure there is maximum continuity in the children’s education.


All pupils have one double period of art every week in the specialist Art Room.


In our Art and Design Department we introduce pupils to a wide range of media and techniques and encourage them to explore their possibilities. Emphasis is placed on creativity as well as on the development of strong observational and practical skills.


Pupils study the work of artists from different historical periods and from a range of cultures. This is intended to enrich their own experience and understanding and provide inspiration for their personal artwork.


Our aim is to foster enthusiasm and enjoyment of art and design activities and to enable pupils to communicate their thoughts and ideas visually in response to the world around them.




We are starting to assemble a list of useful links which will help pupils in their Art & Design studies. If you find any good sites linked to topics studied then please let us know. so that they can be added to the links below.


‘Language is the dress of thought’-[Samuel Johnson]


English is taught in sets throughout the school, from Year 5 to Year 8.Years 5,7 and 8 are taught in four groups, whilst Year 6 are divided into five groups. Years 5 and 6 have five literacy periods a week, Years 7 and 8 have four sessions of English .The English staff will support pupils with specific learning difficulties. Each week, a writing lesson is incorporated into the timetable which links to the English lessons. Also, a variety of I.T. packages are available to enable the students to secure areas of learning. Gifted and talented pupils are encouraged to attend weekend writing workshops.


Homework is set regularly and may involve learning spellings along with a written task, reading or preparing oral work in connection with National Curriculum Key Stages 2 and 3.


Each year group has a separate library lesson. These are used to teach the pupils library and study skills as well as encouraging them to learn to enjoy reading. Older Students mentor younger pupils in a ‘buddy’ reading scheme. Our librarian is currently setting up a course whereby the students can gain a recognized certificate acknowledging their skills in listening to and helping these younger pupils to read. Please listen to your child read aloud; this helps their confidence, checks their reading progress and highlights the importance of reading frequently. The librarian will also be shadowing The Carnegie / Greenaway Award.


Drama is incorporated into the English curriculum. A lunchtime Drama Club caters for those pupils with a keen interest and the School puts on various dramatic productions. Theatre and cinema trips are organized to complement texts and/or authors being studied.
