‘The students who come here every Tuesday to help with our ‘mums and toddler group’ have been amazing. Parents often comment on how lovely and polite the are…such a credit to Trinity School’
Service is an important part of the ethos of Trinity school and is a way we are able to give back to our local community. This opportunity gives students that chance to learn the value of serving others and about Jesus who taught that it is much greater to serve that to be served. It also gives them the chance to learn things they would not necessarily get a chance to experience in the classroom.
Key Stage 3 students all take part in a service placement during the year and last year, as a school, Trinity completed over 1600 hours of service. Key Stage 4 will be piloting a new scheme in 2016/17 which enables them to serve others within the school community. On average, we complete 22 hours of service a week which is organised by our Chaplain and Assistant Chaplain.
Our current local placements are:
- 5 local primary schools
- A residential home for the elderly – Abbeyfield St Mary’s
- A charity day centre for adults with learning and physical disabilities – Leonard Cheshire
- The Greatness Estate
- 2 mother and toddler groups – Vine Evangelical Church and Hope Church
- A nursery – Children’s workshop
