As a former student and now a staff member for over 17 years, I have a great love for Trinity Grammar School and I am very passionate about telling others about the benefits of a Trinity education. As Registrar of the Secondary School, I get to do exactly that every day. I have the best job! So please call me for a chat or book a private tour. I would be happy to discuss the opportunities that Trinity can provide for your son so that he may realise his purpose, passions and potential.

With a proud history of over 100 years, Trinity sets itself apart through diversity of opportunities, community spirit and awareness, exceptional pastoral care and an all-encompassing and comprehensive education. The breadth and depth of the curriculum offered through Trinity, as well as the multitude of sport and co-curricular activities to select from, means that there are choices available to suit every boy’s interests, talents and passions. I have worked at the School for the last two years in different roles. Please call me with any questions you may have. I look forward to welcoming you to our School and assisting you throughout our enrolment process.

I was fortunate to attend Trinity throughout my High School years. I can still remember the enrolment interview that I attended with my parents when I was a boy in Year 5. Now, I consider it an honour and privilege to discuss the potential enrolment of future Trinitarians in this same setting. As Primary Registrar I interview all families considering a Primary education at Trinity. Each interview presents me with another new and exciting opportunity to share the rich experiences and many opportunities that a Trinity education can provide. I have been directly involved in Primary education for 24 years, and it would be a pleasure to speak with you and meet your son, a future Trinitarian!

My family has been a part of the Trinity community for over 25 years. Choosing the right school for your son is an important and difficult decision. I am grateful that as the Enrolment Officer (Primary), I am able to assist parents and guardians with this vital decision. I look forward to helping you through this process.

Mrs Melissa Van Der Leeden

My family has a long and proud connection with Trinity. My father, brother and son are all Old Boys of the School. I have been employed at Trinity since 2009, serving as Executive Assistant to the Master of the Junior School for three of those years. I understand the importance of selecting the right school for your child and am thrilled to have the opportunity to use my knowledge and my experience to help you and your family on your enrolment journey.

I have lived and worked at Trinity in a variety of roles over the last 12 years. Presently I serve as Mathematics Teacher in the Senior School, Middle School Housemaster of Holwood House, Duty Master in the Boarding House, and my newest role as Assistant Registrar. I love having the opportunity to share with others the diversity and breadth that a Trinity Education offers. Whether it be in the classroom, on the sporting field, in Christian Studies classes or in Co-curricular activities. Trinity is a place that encourages its students to grow in wisdom and stature and in favour with God and man (I stole that line from our Mission Statement!) and I would love to chat with you about how we do that.

Scholarships

 

Scholarships

A number of Scholarships for Entry into Year 7 are awarded annually. These include: Academic, Trinitarian/Alumni (All-round) and Music Scholarships.

Academic Scholarships

These Scholarships entitle the holders to remission of tuition fees (whole or part).  Although academic excellence is of course pre-eminent in the awarding of an Academic Scholarship, no Scholarship is ever awarded on academic excellence alone.

Trinitarian and Alumni Scholarships

These Scholarships entitle the holders to the remission of tuition fees (whole or part). They are awarded to boys whose abilities are of an all-round nature. The type of academic, citizenship, sporting and co-curricular contribution that a boy may be able to give to the School will be taken into consideration.

Music Scholarships

These Scholarships entitle the holders to the remission of tuition fees (whole or part). They are awarded to boys with outstanding musical ability, either instrumental or choral work for entry into the Trinity Academy of Music.

International Students

Centrally located in Sydney’s thriving inner-west, Trinity Grammar School draws boys from a wide variety of ethnic and religious backgrounds and many suburbs across Sydney, regional NSW, Australia and overseas countries. Trinity knows what is needed to enable boys to flourish, inspiring each to achieve his true potential and international students have always been a big part of the School. Accommodation is available within the School’s Boarding House not far from the School’s main campus.

The laws in Australia promote quality education and consumer protection for Overseas Students. These laws are known as the Education Services For Overseas Students Framework (ESOS Framework) and include the Education Services for Overseas Students (ESOS) Act 2000 and the National Code. For full details including the rights of Overseas Students click here.

Trinity Grammar School ensures that international students are properly prepared for an English-speaking environment, and that they are supported in Australia.

Intending international students need to:

  • complete an English test at a suitable standard. Australian Education Assessment Services (AEAS) 70% or International English Language Testing System (IELTS) band 5 for boys in Year 7 to 10 and 5.5 for boys in Years 11 and 12 would be regarded as sufficient competence, but the School requires assessment of all applicants and reserves the right to refuse an application if the student’s competence in English is not appropriate for the School’s courses;
  • provide copies of reports from their previous school for at least the last three years and intensive English courses they may have undertaken. If applicable, copies of the Australian National Assessment Program – Literacy and Numeracy NAPLAN results need to be provided.
