September 2021, a significant date for the Barnsley community.

Trinity Academy Barnsley will open its doors for the very first time to welcome its founding cohort of pupils.

I am delighted, excited and bursting with pride, to be appointed Principal. Our school will offer our community a broad, balanced curriculum that will set the highest aspirations and deliver outstanding outcomes for all our children, no matter their starting point, or barrier. Our curriculum will be taught by highly skilled and passionate professionals delivering the highest standards and expectations in their daily work. Children will be at the heart of all we do and a team of experienced pastoral staff will be on hand to support any difficulties a child may face.

Trinity Academy Barnsley will champion science, technology, engineering and maths as part of our curriculum offer. We are committed to working with external partners such as ARMC, Barnsley College and more to develop and deliver our STEM focus throughout our learning and extra-curricular opportunities. This is an exciting and unique chance for the children of Barnsley to start their secondary school career in a smaller, inclusive and experience driven setting. Extra-curricular activities will be just as important and I want our children to leave with life long memories of their time with us, coupled with the ‘real-life skills’ and confidence to be successful in their futures.

I look forward to welcoming our first cohort and their families to Trinity Academy Barnsley. We will work together to shape our new state of the art building and to start the beginning of their future lives.

Mark Allen
Principal
