Arts Week 2011
Trinity Arts Week took place between Monday 11th July and Friday 15th July. The jam-packed week included a huge range of activities both during the school day and in the evenings. Pupils from Years 7, 8 and 9 were given the chance to take part in the daytime events. All the evening events were open to pupils, parents, friends and the general public.
The annual barbeque also took place during the week along with activities on the school field which included henna hand painting and circus skills workshops and demonstrations.

'Come along & Strum Along!' in the Drama Studio: Nottingham Ukulele Group invited anyone and everyone to join them in having a go at playing this fun little instrument.

"The very-short Hairspray!" in the Drama Studio.
