The Mission and Ethos of Trinity
To provide boys with a thoroughly Christian education in mind, body and spirit.
Informed by our Christian ethos, at Trinity every boy is individually known, cared for and guided to grow in mind, body and spirit.
Trinity is a learning community. The growth and development of the mind is a crucial concern. We use the concept of the ‘mind’ to speak about the learning that comes from the formal curriculum and the classroom.
Trinity is a community of movement. Students here move in a myriad of ways: on sports fields, on stage dramatically and musically, across chess boards, through water, in choirs, cadets and debates. Doing so, they develop discipline, resilience, healthy habits, and teamwork. Every student grows through this shared experience.
Trinity is a community of Christian faith. What makes Trinity tick, what sets its heart to beat is a humble response to God. In this humility of spirit, our boys are invited to grow as men of character and hope.
Detur gloria soli Deo (Let glory be given to God alone)
Chosen by the forefathers of the School in 1915, the motto evokes the
motive that lies behind all that this School has been and become through
its history. It continues to undergird and orient us still.
We ask your blessing upon all who work in and for this School.
Grant us faith to grow spiritually, strength to grow bodily, and wisdom to
grow intellectually, Through Jesus Christ our Lord, Amen.
Sustainability at Trinity is broadly understood, centring on
environmental sustainability but also including wider issues
that contribute to sustainable human flourishing.
Our Christian foundation and convictions establish the importance
of caring for the created order. There are three overlapping lenses
through which we consider sustainability:
