We are a Christian school through and through and are very keen to uphold this important and foundational element at Trinity.  You do not have to be a Christian to join us but be sympathetic to our Christian values.

We highly recommend you come and visit us to experience what others so readily affirm that Trinity is truly a unique place, with a calm and caring atmosphere.
