A lively place to be
The Trinity school music department is a lively place to be. The fourteen members of staff offer individual lessons on nearly all stringed, woodwind, brass and percussion instruments. There are many extra curricular groups that cater for pupils of all abilities from beginners to advanced. Through these ensembles we aim to improve pupils' performing skills and music appreciation as well as help to develop life skills such as social interaction, co-operation and a sense of pride in their work!
The Trinity Music Department is well known in the area for its high standards of practical music but it has an excellent record in examinations and academic studies as well.
At Trinity we aim to take our music out into the wider community through performances and concerts outside school. These include:
- Swing Band performances at the Nottingham Hospice, Council House, Sandfield centre, etc.
- Visits to the Shepherd School, a local special school.
- Working with local feeder schools.
