Welcome to Trinity School's website - thank you for visiting us.
We are a lively, thriving and friendly community, close to the heart of the city centre of Carlisle. We trace our history back to the Grammar School in late Victorian times (now the Carliol building, housing our Sixth Form Centre). We also have the buildings of The Creighton School (for Boys) and The Margaret Sewell School (for Girls) from 1938, which gives us an open site, with plenty of space, from the city centre at one end, down to the river Eden and Rickerby Park in the east.
Trinity School was founded in 1968 from the joining of the three schools, but we really take our name from the city's cathedral, with which we continue to have strong links.
We have over 1800 students on roll, of whom around 350 are in the Sixth Form. This allows us to run a very wide range of courses at GCSE and at A level, and to generate a superb range of extra-curricular activities as well.
We are a Specialist Language College, offering opportunities to students to learn French, German, Spanish and Italian, and to visit those countries. We also have a USA exchange.
Opportunities abound at the school: we run an Outdoor Education centre for our Duke of Edinburgh Award scheme; we have our own observatory and theatre company. We have national competitors and champions in many sports, a swimming pool and fitness centre, and there are over 200 students having musical instrument tuition - with much more besides.
It is very important to us that we seek to care for and to nurture each student. Our House system and whole approach is to do with the education of the whole person.
You would be most welcome to pay us a real as well as a virtual visit.
Trinity School receives additional funding to support those students eligible for Free School meals as a way of addressing inequalities in educational outcomes and in ensuring that all students can achieve academically. Details of how we use this money to support the students in the curriculum are included from the links below:
Details of Our School Meals services can now be viewed at our School Meals Mini Site here. We operate four weekly cycle menus, with lots of different choices of food available and in addition to the normal menu range we have at least on theme day menu every calendar month.
The weekly menu shows the hot meal choices available every day. These can be purchased including complementary vegetables or salad and potato, rice or pasta for the price stated on the menu. Should you wish to add a dessert to the meal you will automatically receive both courses for the set amount.
