Each Trinity student has different skills and interests that propel them
through their academic journey. Trinity offers several academic
pathways for our students, based on age and stage. Our ethos to offer
choice and challenge contributes to boys’ character formation.

During Years 7 to 10 there are flexible learning models and new subject choices available to Trinity students. The standard curriculum covers the key learning areas of English, Mathematics, Science, Creative Arts, Human Society and the Environment and Languages.
Trinity is able to unlock greater choice and opportunity thanks to the Year 9, term-long residential at Woollamia, near Jervis Bay, with extensive elective opportunities for Year 9 and 10 students during the Stage 5 curriculum and timetable.
Students pick one 200-hour course for study over both years, as well as two 100-hour courses, occupying one semester each, in Year 10.
A third element of the Stage 5 curriculum allows Year 9 students to choose three of Trinity’s own 25-hour “rapid inquiry” courses – one per term – to investigate areas of particular interest, often spanning multiple disciplines.
Subjects include engineering, social justice, entrepreneurialism, visual design, sports science, journalism and more. Students present their findings in many ways, including models, reports, short films, websites, and TED talks.
This combination of ‘long and slow’ learning, alongside ‘fast and hard’ provides students with opportunities to learn differently. They learn how to manage and plan work with both short- and long-term lenses. This aids future academic capability.
