Destinations & Our Alumni

The impact of the quality of education that TSFA students receive can be seen in the destinations data, which is well above national average.

  • 96% of last year’s cohort are in employment, further education, higher education or training.
  • In 2019, every student who applied to University was offered a place. Although University uptake has been stable for the past 2 years, less emphasis is being placed solely on progression to HE, with the creation of better apprenticeships and the links TSFA is creating with local businesses.
  • 2017 saw the first successful applicant to Cambridge and since then there have been two additional successful applicants over consecutive years.

Charlotte Faulkner

After gaining my A levels in History, French and English Literature and leaving 6th form, I went to study law at St John’s College, University of Cambridge. Having joined in 2019, I am just completing my first year and I’ve really enjoyed it.

Joely Knight

I attended Trinity Academy Halifax sixth form from 2015-2017. I studied art, photography and health and social care. Health and social care created the foundations for my career. I am employed at a local hospital Trust as a Trainee Nursing Associate, and funded to study the foundation degree at University. I hope many others can be inspired to work in the healthcare sector, as it is the most rewarding job ever!
