Trinity has built links with Independent schools to provide our highest achieving pupils with the opportunity to win Sixth Form scholarship at some of the country’s best independent schools. To be awarded a scholarship pupils will be required to sit an entrance exam and interview in addition to achieving at the highest level at GCSE.
Previous pupils Janielle Orisa-Nwoke and Cindy-Ann Lael Malouange Yetna who have had the wonderful opportunity to attend Lancing College on a scholarship have gone on to receive scholarships to Cambridge and Oxford University. We wish both girls every success along their journey.
