EDUCATION: Trinity School’s rich history in Teignmouth

Headmaster Lawrence Coen from Trinity School explains more about the opportunities available

Trinity School in Teignmouth is building an impressive reputation for offering students an extraordinary breadth and depth of opportunities beyond the classroom, which in turn is having a significant and positive effect on academic results inside the classroom. After Sixth Form, they are regularly sending pupils to Russell Groups Universities including Oxbridge, Imperial, UCL, LSE, Bristol and Warwick. Trinity appears to have found a magic formula which empowers and inspires individuals.

Recipients of 6 Good School Guide Awards for A-Level performance, this year saw Trinity School achieve another 100% pass rate with 98% A* to C and nearly half of those A* or A grade. Similarly, a 100% GCSE pass rate saw 15% at Grade 9 with half of all results awarded either 9, 8 or 7.

Within the welcoming and safe environment which Trinity provides, self-discipline is developed through understanding individual personalities and learning styles. Participation in the Combined Cadet Force (CCF), inspirational clubs such as the Green Car Challenge or Science Buskers and regular regional and nation recognition for Art. It is no surprise that prior to the COVID disruption, Trinity won First Place in the Independent School Association Awards for STEM!

With an indoor swimming pool, Tennis Academy featuring indoor and floodlit courts and a new fitness suite in development, Trinitonians are well provided for on site.  None more so than with the school’s cuisine, which is simply exceptional.  Many staff recognise that the top-flight chefs, who have worked at some of the finest London restaurants (Claridge’s for example) produce food which would make Trinity the ‘best restaurant in the area’. 

Off-site activities make full use of the coast and include surfing, sailing, life-saving, SUP as well as scuba diving.  On land, CCF, Duke of Edinburgh and the Ten Tors challenge form the backbone of the active pursuits offering. Teignmouth’s proximity to Dartmoor, a vast moorland area, affords students the opportunity to develop their hiking, orienteering and camp craft skills.

Overseas trips to Europe and beyond, support Trinity’s curriculum, as well as offering longer expeditions through the World Challenge organisation.

“Rooted in a love of adventure and giving ample opportunities to get stuck in at every level, this a school that genuinely develops the whole child and gives them a great time along the way.” Good Schools Guide
