Head Teacher’s Welcome

On behalf of the students, staff and governors we wish to welcome you to the website of The Trinity Catholic School.

The history of the school can be traced as far back as 1844 when the Sisters of Mercy came to Nottingham and opened St Mary’s Elementary School and St Catherine’s Day and Boarding School on this site. Since then as the demands for the Catholic education grew within Nottingham so has the school, to the special place it is today educating over eleven hundred young people. The school is an active member of the Our Lady of Lourdes Catholic Multi-Academy Trust, along with the other 36 Catholic schools within Nottinghamshire and Lincolnshire.

We are a Catholic school with the aim of developing our young people spiritually, socially and academically with Christ at the centre of our work.  Our school motto, ‘Ad Dei Gloriam’ meaning what we do we offer to the glory of God, underpins the ethos of the school.  This is developed further within our school mission statement:

“To the Glory of God, we build our school on faith, love and respect”

Academically we are consistently one of the highest performing schools within Nottingham City both at GCSE and A-Level. We ensure that all our students secure an appropriate next pathway in their education upon leaving Trinity, whether that be an apprenticeship, studying in our thriving sixth form or, following A-Levels, securing a place at a top university.

Beyond the curriculum, we offer unrivalled opportunities in music, where all students take up an instrument, play in an orchestra and learn to read music. In sport, we are extremely proud of our offer and achievements particularly in football, netball, rugby and handball. We run a highly successful Duke of Edinburgh Award scheme and have a rich programme of extra-curricular activities for everyone.

Please enjoy our website to find out more about our wonderful school.

Mr Shenton
