OFSTED Feedback

In 2019 OFSTED judged the The Trinity Catholic School to be Good. This is what they had to say about the sixth form:

  • The leadership of the sixth from is effective and ambitious. The curriculum offers a good range of courses for students, including academic learning and an increased range of applied courses.
  • Relationships between staff and students are exceptionally positive. Students are polite and courteous. Students who met with inspectors spoke favourably about the time they spend as part of the sixth-form community. They value the opportunities for leadership and acting as positive role models for younger pupils.
  • Students receive very effective pastoral support. Attendance is well above average. A carefully designed programme for personal development enables students to learn about age-appropriate themes.
  • Students benefit from effective support from school staff for careers information, advice and guidance. As a result, the proportion of students entering higher or further education, training or employment is above the national average.
  • All students participate in a meaningful type of work experience during Year 12. Students willingly accept responsibility for finding their own placements which meet their needs and aspirations, closely supported by staff.
  • Inspectors’ observations of the quality of teaching, learning and assessment in the sixth form indicated that it is good. Teachers have strong subject knowledge and they used this to deepen students’ knowledge and understanding. Expectations are high.
