Trinity acknowledges that social stigma and silence around male sexual abuse and assault result in a lack of awareness and understanding about the effects of these experiences, and what men need to move forward.
The School has channels available should any former student wish to report abuse experienced at Trinity. Any disclosures will be directed to the Headmaster and treated confidentially and sensitively.
We encourage survivors to apply to the National Redress Scheme, which was set up to enable people who have experienced institutional child sexual abuse gain access to counselling, a direct personal response, and a redress payment. Trinity continues to wholeheartedly participate in and fulfil all its obligations under the Scheme.
