Independent HMC day school of 1000 students 10-18, with a co-educational Sixth Form. Shortlisted for Independent Senior School of the Year TES Awards 2019.

Trinity is a dynamic, forward-looking school at the forefront of independent education. It offers a first-class educational experience for boys aged 10-18 and girls aged 16-18. There are currently 1000 pupils attending the school.

There are four main ages of entry into the school: at 10+ (Year 6), 11+, 13+ and 16+. Trinity has a broad ethnically and socially diverse pupil body which reflects the local area. Just over half of the pupils enter from local primary schools and, with the support of the Whitgift Foundation, Trinity is able to offer generous bursary support, with just over 50% of pupils receiving financial assistance.

The school was last inspected by the Independent Schools Inspectorate in 2021. Trinity was awarded Excellent in both Pupils' Achievement and Personal Development and the report found, "Pupils' natural intellectual curiosity and eagerness to learn is strongly supported by energetic, imaginative teaching" with an "exceptionally high standard of pastoral care."

Trinity School is part of the Whitgift Foundation, founded in 1596 by John Whitgift, Archbishop of Canterbury. For over 400 years, the Whitgift Foundation has been educating the young and caring for the elderly. It plays a significant role in Croydon life promoting educational excellence, supporting carers and providing a range of services for elderly people.

The Foundation educates over 3,000 students from in and around Croydon through its three independent schools: Trinity, Whitgift (day and boarding for boys aged 10-18) and Old Palace of John Whitgift School (nursery for boys and girls from age 3 months to 4 years and day school for girls aged 4 to 18). The schools and their pupils benefit from the support of one of the largest bursary schemes in the country. Over 46% of students are currently supported by a bursary or scholarship scheme, totalling in excess of £5million per year.
