We believe that every member of our school community has a role to play in shaping our ethos, values and strategic development. Students at Trinity School are encouraged to participate in all aspects of school life, including contributing ideas and taking on leadership responsibilities. A wide range of extracurricular activities are available offering all students, whatever their capability, additional opportunities to embrace a role in leadership.

A variety of leadership opportunities at Trinity School stem from the House System which includes House Captains and Stars. Regular house and inter-school competitions feature throughout the year providing students with numerous occasions to volunteer themselves for leadership roles.
Trinity School also has Prefects and Head Boy and Girl. These students play an important role in school life, not only by helping during important events but also in the day-to-day running of the school, such as assisting with supervision of students during breaks and lunches.
Other leadership opportunities exist in roles such as anti-bullying and sports ambassadors.
At Trinity, we believe that all students are leaders and we are proactive in giving students opportunities to lead and influence others, which we think is a good preparation for adult life.
