Sixth Form Life

As part of Sixth Form life there are opportunities to take on leadership roles through mentoring, running clubs and as part of the Prefect team.  The Head Girl, Head Boy and Deputy Head Girl & Deputy Head Boy are selected at Easter during Year 12 to allow the current Year 13 team to focus on their final exams.  Students in these positions lead the prefect team and meet regularly with staff and the school leadership team to forge a vital link between the student body and staff.  They have a high profile role, visiting and talking with lower school tutor groups and representing the school meeting with external visitors.  The current team leaders are;

Sport

Sport is an important part of the Sixth Form at Trinity School.  Time for this will be blocked out on their timetables to enable students to keep fit and active and for our sports teams to take part in fixtures against other schools. Wednesday afternoons are timetabled for Sixth Form students to organise, set up and run sporting activities for the lower school with support from the PE department.

Service

Serving others is a key part of the Trinity ethos.  Students in the Sixth Form will be supported to find service placements within the school and external communities.  Already we have a number of students in the Sixth Form engaged in service.  This includes leading clubs and teams, helping at a mother and toddler group at a local church and volunteering for local charities.

The Mayor visits Trinity's Creation Care 'Growing Hope' Garden. Wednesday 12th May. 

Councillor Dr Merilyn Canet Sevenoaks Mayor visited Trinity's newly established 'Growing Hope' Garden which supports the Sevenoaks Town Council's 'Give it a Grow' initiative on Wednesday.  

The Growing Hope Garden aims to educate students on climate change through growing organic vegetables as well as learn how climate change affects poorer nations. Our Creation Care Assistants and Zoological Assistants were keen to share their knowledge with The Mayor. The Growing Hope Garden is also part of Trinity's Service Programme and provides a quiet place for students and staff to appreciate the healing benefits of growing vegetables in the great outdoors!
