“Choosing the right secondary school for your child is an important decision for parents.
Our core values of aspiration, knowledge and respect shape everything we do and underpin our holistic approach in developing the whole child.
This is why we put equal emphasis on the academic, co-curricular and pastoral strands to achieve a fully rounded education.”
Trinity Academy, as part of the leading Future Academies family of schools, provides a traditional and aspirational academic curriculum, broad co-curriculum, and excellent pastoral care as part of a fully rounded education for boys and girls aged 11-18 from a wide catchment area across south London.
Our highly qualified teachers are subject specialists; our pupils benefit from small class sizes, a broad range of subjects including Latin, cutting-edge facilities and tried and tested classroom resources.
Our values of knowledge, aspiration and respect underpin our high standards and our excellent academic results.
Parents or guardians who would like to apply for a place at Trinity Academy at any time other than Year 7, can apply either by using Lambeth Council’s in-year online application form or you can register your interest for a place at our Academy using the in-year application form.
Once an application has been received by the Lambeth Council’s Admissions Team, the council will make a decision as to whether a place can be offered. If a school has more vacancies than applications, your child will be offered a place. If the school has more applications than places available, admission rules are used to decide the order that applicants are offered places. If we are unable to offer a place, the child’s name will be placed on a waiting list in accordance with the published admissions criteria.
If a place cannot be offered, parents/carers will be given the opportunity of placing their child’s name on a waiting list. This does not prevent parents from exercising their right to appeal against the decision not to offer a place. Parents/carers who are seeking a new school place for their child who has been permanently excluded from a school should not apply via the in-year process.
Instead, if they are a Lambeth resident, they should contact the Inclusion Team at Lambeth Local Authority to discuss revised educational arrangements as detailed in the permanent exclusion letter issued. For non-Lambeth residents, parents/carers should contact their home Local Authority to find out how they can offer support and guidance regarding the next steps.
If it has not been possible to offer your child a place at Trinity Academy, you have the right, by law, to appeal to an independent appeal panel.
Although the law allows you to have the opportunity to appeal against admission decisions, it does not give your child the automatic right to a place at a particular school.
There is no guarantee that your appeal will be successful, and each case will be decided on its own merits by the independently appointed panel.
Appeals are processed by Trinity Academy.
If you wish to appeal for a place in Year 7, Year 12 or in-year, please complete the appeal form and return it to us.
