Trinity to open sixth form

Trinity Academy is launching its sixth form ready for a September 2024 start.

The new school opened in 2019 and moved into new facilities in September 2021.  It has been oversubscribed since its opening and now has a full lower school.   As part of the Cathedral Schools Trust, Trinity Academy sets a high standard of learning for its diverse school community and its mission for high academic teaching, a caring community and strong co-curricular offer resonates with the community.

Trinity is now looking to extend this mission and values to its sixth form which will open in purpose built facilities that have been designed to meet the needs of our post 16 students.  The school is working in close partnership with colleagues at Bristol Cathedral Choir School (BCCS )sixth form which is oversubscribed and recently rated outstanding by Ofsted.  Trinity sixth form will assume the same structures, processes and curriculum.

The school has a teaching staff of highly academic, outstanding teachers.  Classes at Trinity are likely to be smaller than many other Bristol providers which will enable the school’s focus on a caring community.   The sixth form will also have a strong Performing Arts programme with formal links to the Bristol Old Vic Theatre School, Trinity Laban Conservatoire of Music and Dance and the Royal Welsh College of Music and Drama.  Each institution will be involved in sharing their expertise and delivering part of the Dance, Drama and Music A Levels.

Headteacher Eiron Bailey says: “We are confident that our mission at Trinity translates into a first class  and unique sixth form provision where outstanding academic tuition is combined with high level, individual support and a broad co-curricular offer.  6th formers at Trinity will have the opportunity to achieve both academic success and develop broader qualifications whether this be within the performing arts or leadership arenas.”

Open events for the sixth form are being held at Trinity Academy on Wednesday October 11 and Tuesday November 7. Places can be booked via the Trinity Academy website ( or direct from Eventbrite.

There will be teachers and staff on hand to discuss the options available to students and the application process.
