I am delighted to welcome you to our sixth form, at the heart of Halifax town centre, rated outstanding by Ofsted in October 2021. At Trinity Sixth Form Academy we believe passionately in the importance of an institution that contributes to personal development, human flourishing and the creation of the good society. We, therefore, want our students to have access to the highest levels of subject knowledge, to be professional in everything they do and to strive to be virtuous in their relations with others. These three things are what we consider to be the constitutive features of an outstanding education that develops ‘Life Ready Learners'.
The academy is unashamedly academic and offers a broad curriculum of A-levels and L3 BTEC qualifications, designed to support the young people from our region and beyond in securing the best possible outcomes, which open up a lifetime of future opportunities with the leading universities and employers in the world.
I am immensely proud of our sixth Form culture and see each and every one of our students as an ambassador for Trinity. Our results speak for themselves; we lead the Calderdale region for progress, with a 99.7% pass rate in 2019 and every year our students secure the best possible destinations for both degree apprenticeships and university places, including Oxbridge. However, we are about so much more than academic success. We pride ourselves on our enrichment offer and our approaches to mental health, the pastoral support we provide and the relationships that we secure as a sixth form community. Don’t take my word for it; come and see us in our new state of the art building. I look forward to meeting you.
Principal, Trinity Sixth Form Academy
