Trinity Catholic College opened in September 2011 bringing students together from two separate buildings to one.
Trinity's education vision is: To ensure an inclusive learning community living out gospel values.
Finally all under one roof
At the start of the new term Trinity Catholic College welcomed its pupils to their new state of the art building. Located on Saltersgill Avenue, the new school will accommodate 1,200 pupils aged 11-16.
As part of a phased return pupils, from year 7 and 10 approached the new building with excitement. Pupil Jessica Leadbitter told the Evening Gazette: "I think it will improve learning and I am really looking forward to using the new technology."
At the centre of the school is a huge multi-purpose 'street' running through the middle of the building. Off the street are three separate teaching wings each housing a different department, a two storey creative art, music and drama hub, ICT suites, a learning and resource centre, chapel, main hall and sports hall.
The innovative design of a number of classrooms in the teaching wings, means that four classrooms can be changed into two lager rooms, or even one huge room. Audio technology allows the teachers voice to be heard in the larger rooms.
Peter Coady, Headteacher of Trinity Catholic College, said: "Now the College is open, I feel the complete realisation of the opportunity given to staff, pupils and the local community following the completion of this BSF project."
Outside there are three grass pitches, a full sized artificial turf pitch with flood lighting which can be used by the community and a separate entrance for community use. Pupil, Alex Myers told the Evening Gazette: "I really like it, it looks big and I like the football pitch"
