Charities we support
Here at Trinity, we aim to provide a nurturing school environment, surrounded by supportive peers and staff, which allows you to live life in all its fullness and flourish as individuals. We support a wide number of charities. The charities are selected by pupils and reflect issues that are important to them. By conducting various fund activities, we both raise funds to support these charities and to raise awareness of the different issues our pupils will encounter.
