“Our curriculum has knowledge at its heart: we want our students to experience the joy of learning, and we know that this helps them become confident, articulate and resilient young people.
All our curriculum programmes are academically ambitious, but clear, carefully-planned teaching allows all children to succeed. We use widely-available programmes, such as Maths Mastery, where we believe they are highly effective; but more often, subject experts at our Trust’s Curriculum Centre have developed our own schemes of work, typically supported by our own textbooks, in subjects from Latin and history to English and science.
We take the time to choose carefully what knowledge to teach, prioritising that which will be of the greatest value to our students in their later lives, and we work out how to teach it in a way that helps children to remember it and to understand how different parts of the curriculum are related to each other.”
“The curriculum on offer at Trinity Academy is academic, ambitious, and challenging for all of our students.
We offer our students a knowledge-rich curriculum and use teaching methods that support the delivery of our curriculum in the classroom.
Students will study English and mathematics daily, and learn Latin from Year 7.
All of our students are prepared for the English Baccalaureate, the suite of qualifications that facilitate progression onto good A-levels and universities.
Students will receive an excellent grounding in the sciences, geography and history as they progress through their time at Trinity.”
