At Trinity we pride ourselves not only on the progress made and achievement of our most able, but also on the opportunities offered to those for whom participation, enjoyment and the development of team skills are the primary aim.

PE lessons are delivered in our brand new Sports Centre, on our hard courts and all-weather pitch.

A wide range of co-curricular activities are on offer at Trinity School. The benefits of sport and physical activity are considerable and well documented. We hope that all students will leave Trinity School with a desire to continue taking part in regular exercise in an activity or sport they have discovered in their time here. The activities run during lunch or before school, whilst squad practice and fixtures take place after school.

KS4 Football

Year 10 Boys Football.

A fantastic season for the Y10 team so far with the opportunity of achieving even more. The boys have won every match in the league and remain one victory away from claiming the league title – a tremendous achievement!

The season got off to a flying start with a 5-0 away victory at Hadlow including a hat-trick from David La Trobe. Despite a tough game in the cup where they faced excellent opposition with many noticeable absentees, the boys showed great resilience to bounce back with a thumping 6-1 victory vs Skinners Kent Academy. The attitude and teamwork showed on the pitch has been exemplary when faced with tough opposition. The boys football ability has developed admirably over the course of the year.

They fully deserve what we believe they are about to achieve.

Year 9 Boys Football.

A great deal of positives shown from the Year 9 team throughout the season. The boys’ passion for the game and desire to succeed has shown throughout with regular attendances in club training and dedication to the cause in their gameplay.

Despite limited success in terms of results on the pitch, each player has developed their own set of skills both individually and for the team. The leadership and organisation from the team was constant and obvious. An outstanding display of excellence off the pitch which will endeavour to work in their favour in the future years.

Year 10 Girls Netball

An outstanding start to their year this year. Our Year 10 Netball team being close contenders to win the Team of the Year 2017. They have kick started the year with a full league being played and successfully winning each game. The year 10 team must be rewarded for their time and effort over the past two years, success has really been gained through their dedication to training and the whole team attending. Success has not been measured solely by the goal line but just how the squad has grown from 7 players to 10 players.

Cross Country Competition at Knole Park

On 17th November Trinity travelled to Sevenoaks School to compete against schools across the country in the Knole Run 2017.  Trinity entered two full squads of students from year 7 & 8.

Congratulations to our boys who competed in a 2.1 mile run; Juan Barnard, Pier Higginson, Vinnie Collard, Ciaran Barton, Conor Read and Ryan Westfield, Ayden Hayward, Jed Kimber, Rory Pocknall and Rory Mallroy.

Congratulations to our girls who competed in a 1.6 mile run; Julia Sackville-West, Rosie Donohoe, Hannah Glanfield, Felicity Pitchford, Elizabeth Jones, Heather Doyle, Konnie Litwak, Elyisha Omokhai and Scalett Clarke-Murphy.

The girls ran first and what effort they all put in, after 9 minutes, the first girl crossed the line which was shortly followed by Julia Sackville-West, the first Trinity student to cross the line (12:59).

Juan Barnard of Year 8 started very quickly and was in 6th position out of hundreds of boys. Just after 12 minutes, the first boy crossed the line. Shortly after that, the first Trinity student crossed the line and it was Piers Higginson (14:57). Shortly after, the rest of Trinity boys finished the line after putting in incredible effort.

All students displayed excellence, resilience and determination. They should all be proud of their efforts and their finish time,

Congratulations to our Year 9 Rugby Team who were unbeaten in the West Kent District League.

This season saw our Year 9 rugby team being captained by Paddy Walton and Vice-Captain Jamie Munday. Unfortunately, many injuries were received prior to the season and this saw some key players missing the first few games. The team have grown and the strength and tactical awareness that our students now play with is immense, students have found a working partnership with one another.

It brings me great pleasure to announce that our Year 9 Boys Rugby Team have been entered in the U15 NatWest Cup which will commence in September 2017.


Congratulations to our Year 9 Netball Team who were unbeaten in the Tonbridge and Malling Schools League.

This season saw our Year 9 girls travel to Shrewsbury, Shropshire, for an England Netball PGL trip where they faced some tough competition. The girls excelled themselves in their playing capacity and their sportsmanship. The students were commended by the England Officials for their determination and self-motivation as a team. This was an excellent stepping stone to the league.

Y9 NB2
The Tonbridge and Malling School League saw very close games, our closest was against Knole Academy whose girls were also undefeated. The girls will be entered in the Kent Netball Tournament this year, which will be held at Rainham Girls.


Congratulations to our Year 7 Boys Football Team who were unbeaten and won the League and the West Kent Districts Tournament

This season saw Trinity’s football kick off. The boys were coached by Mr Sherwood. The students attended training religiously in the build-up to the finals day. It was a very close game against St Gregory’s. The score at half time was 1-0 to Trinity. The tension grew on the side-line with the Trinity Parents and the boys thrived from the support. In the last minutes of the game St Gregory’s equalised, the students were not defeated they knew they had it in them as a team. The chance came when a free kick was given in the last few minutes, Trinity were the Cup Finalists!

Year 7 FB

An outstanding team display by both teams, well done.


Congratulations to our Girls Rugby Side who are growing in numbers and successes.

A recent competition held at Tunbridge Wells Rugby Club saw Trinity entering three teams into the Girls Tag Festival. This was a great competition that saw our girls thrive and strive for success. We entered our Year 7 & 8’s into the U13 competition and our Year 9 & 10 in the U15 competition. The girls showed precision, drive and tactics of the game. Girls Rugby is really starting to grow and we planning to create a Girls Rugby Academy affiliated to Sevenoaks Rugby Club. These are exciting times ahead for the girls and the department.
