Prior to taking on this role, he spent 4 years in various roles from Hospitality to English teaching, PE Coaching and School Mentoring. His heart is to see the next generation realise their worth and potential and to be enabled, equipped, and empowered to become future leaders in society. With a passion for music and a gift in multiple instruments, one of his main roles is to head up and lead the Trinity Worship Team. He will also be leading the new Strength course which is designed to empower young men to realise their significance, resilience, and courage, so that they may grow in confidence and leadership. Finally, Matt is a big Crystal Palace fan!! (as many students already know!!)
Christina joined Trinity School in December 2018 after a long career break from The City after having children. Christina worked for BP and Arthur Andersen’s before joining Investment Banking in Sterling Bonds at Barclays Investment Bank and subsequently for Tokai Bank and The Royal Bank of Scotland/Greenwich NatWest Markets. She has been married for 19 years and is a busy wife and mum of two teenage children and loves going to the gym and is an avid cook. Christina volunteered for many years at her children’s primary school and now uses her organisational skills to work in the Chaplaincy Department of Trinity.
Sue studied at the Bath Academy of Art and has a degree in illustration. Sue illustrated children's books for many years before working alongside students in both the primary and secondary sectors. Sue is originally from Manchester and is married with two children! We are truly blessed to have Sue with us at Trinity. Her creativity and passion for Jesus' love is inspirational. Sue leads Trinity's Creative Intervention Programme which was established in 2019. The Creative Intervention Programme provides a safe space of peace, consistency and calm for our students. The students produce ethos led masterpieces which are then displayed for the benefit of the whole school community. Sue's skills as an artist, combined with her huge pastoral heart means that students thrive under her expert artistic tutorship.

Jacquie Bignell & Renate Moerdijk
Jacquie and Renate are both parents at Trinity who have volunteered their time, gifts and talents to the Chaplaincy team faithfully over the past 3 years, and continue to do so! They work expertly together through their professional expertise in architecture (Jacquie) and design (Renate). They have worked faithfully, striving for excellence every step of the way on the new chapel build. Thanks to their vision, time and energy, Trinity is blessed to have a beautiful new Chapel, where students and staff are able to come for a time of quiet reflection, prayer and to learn about God through the Bible, and most importantly to receive and experience the love of God.
Jacquie and Renate also work alongside the Chaplain to create the vision and inspiration behind Trinity's annual Prayer Space. Their love for Jesus is inspirational and they pour out their gifts and talents in service to Him, for which the whole school community is blessed by.
We are so thankful to Janet Phythian, Glenn Walsh and Pauline Mckecknie who are Trinity's Growing Hope Team! Each week students learn about the impact of climate change through the process of growing vegetables organically, and this is through the Trinity Service and Co-Curricular programmes each Wednesday.
I remember being in a meeting about 10 years ago when someone mentioned this idea of opening a new secondary school in Sevenoaks founded on Christian values, it has been a real privilege to have seen this idea become reality. I work at a local Church as a Youth and Children's worker and as part of my role I love being able to come and spend time in some of our local schools. I am passionate about young people being able to grow up knowing their worth and value is not solely attached to the letters and numbers that end up on their exam papers, for our young people to have places where they can truly know belonging and understand a holistic approach to life. In my free time I'm a big Charlton Athletic fan and sometimes even manage to convince my wife to come with me to matches, we also love spending time with friends out and about in the wonderful countryside around us. We attend Bessel's Green Baptist Church where I also work and grew up, we love our Church family and hugely value the community that comes with being part of a Church.
We are also delighted that Jeeves and Ben come into Trinity to help run the Christian Union each week. They are passionate about growing young disciples.
Sanjeev, or Jeevs, is an Elder at Hope Church Sevenoaks and has led youth work for over 10 years in different churches and charities. Additionally, he oversees the youth work across a network of churches called New Ground; in which he has the heart to help develop youth leaders to serve local churches and to continue to see the gospel being preached to the next generation! Jeevs is driven to disciple and raise up young people who are passionate about Christ and mission. He also works as a cyber security consultant to help bring security transformation across different sectors. Jeevs is married to his wonderful wife and has one beautiful boy; in his spare time he loves cooking and rugby.
Fresh out of finishing his A-Levels, Ben is taking a year out to receive discipleship teaching, which includes 4 weeks away and a mission trip. A part of that discipleship means that he serves in a church placement, working 3 days a week at Hope Church Sevenoaks specialising in Tech & Media. This puts him in the perfect place to serve the Christian Union using what he is learning week to week to help grow the students in their faith!
He spends lots of time meeting up with other young people doing the same year. Otherwise he will either be developing his creative skills for photography and video editing or gaming!
