The Trinity Multi Academy Trust (Trinity MAT) family
Trinity Academy Barnsley will join our family of six academies.
Trinity Academy Halifax
From the very start, expectations at Trinity Academy Halifax were set high. This Church of England academy welcomed students of all faiths and none, inspiring everyone with its core values of Empathy, Honesty, Respect and Responsibility, rather than religious doctrine.
Leaders and staff aspired to excellence for every student, with an emphasis on high quality teaching and a clear behaviour policy that enables calm classrooms and excellent learning.
In just three years, the Academy had transformed behaviour, teaching and learning, along with the future prospects of its students.
An Ofsted inspection 2013 declared Trinity Academy Halifax to be outstanding in every area – student achievement, quality of teaching, safety and behaviour, leadership, management and overall effectiveness.
Trinity Academy Sowerby Bridge
Sowerby Bridge High School became Trinity Academy Sowerby Bridge (TASB) in September 2017, heralding a new and exciting journey for the school and its local community.
In 2016, Ofsted had graded the school as ‘inadequate’ and it ranked in the lowest 15% of all UK schools. On joining Trinity MAT, standards changed rapidly.
After just two years, the Academy stands proudly in the top 1% of the most improved schools in the country.
In 2015, the former Cathedral School in Wakefield was failing both financially and educationally. Trinity MAT reached out to the school with help and support in 2016, and in 2017, Cathedral School joined the trust as Cathedral Academy.
The results were astonishing: by 2018, Cathedral School had progressed from failure to the TES 2019 Secondary School of the Year!
Akroydon Primary Academy
Akroydon was the first primary school to join Trinity MAT. Catering for children from nursery age to 10, the school’s results were poor and it needed a new direction.
Akroydon became part of the Trust in 2017 and, inspired by the Trust’s vision and approach, the hard work soon brought results. In 2019, Akroydon Primary Academy was named as Calderdale’s Most Improved School.
Trinity Sixth Form Academy
With brand new state-of-the-art premises in the heart of Halifax town centre opening in 2020, this outstanding sixth form provides students with the environment, resources and staff for the finest quality teaching and learning. A positive mix of challenge, pressure and effective support helps them become successful learners, ready for adult choices, study and work.
St Chad’s Primary Academy, Brighouse
The newest member of the Trinity family, St Chad’s joined the Trust in 2019. The Academy’s strong Christian ethos is focused on providing outstanding education and care that supports every child, no matter what their faith.
In addition to its schools, Trinity MAT has developed three other leading organisations:
Trinity Teaching School Alliance (TSA) trains new teachers and supports schools across the region with direct support and training of the highest quality.
White Rose Maths
