Principal's Welcome

““I am delighted to welcome you to our 6th Form. At Trinity Sixth Form Academy we believe passionately in the importance of the school as 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’.””

Welcome to Trinity Sixth Form Academy. 

Our mission at is to support our students in becoming ‘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 qualifications, which open up a lifetime of future opportunities with the leading universities and employers in the world.  

We take a triangulated approach to developing life ready learners.  Through great teaching students acquire powerful knowledge, knowledge that they otherwise would not know.  We then aim to instil inward-looking values that define us as people. The four core professional standards that we encourage students to foster are: integrity, mental toughness, an attention to detail and work ethic, enabling students to reflect honestly on their strengths and areas of development.  Lastly, students develop an outward-looking sense of themselves and the world through our civic virtues.  These virtues enable students to consider how best to be virtuous as part of a local, national and global community.  

We are immensely proud of our 6th Form culture and see each 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% pass rate in 2019 and every year our students secure the best possible destinations like degree apprenticeships and university places at 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 6th 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.
