Trinity Academy opened in September 2005 and replaced Thorne Grammar School as it celebrated its 75th Anniversary. Serving the townships of Thorne and Moorends, in the north-east of Doncaster, Trinity is part of Emmanuel Schools Foundation and is also a part of the Academies Programme. Specialising in Business and Enterprise, it is built on the playing fields of the former Grammar School but is non-selective and shares the values of Emmanuel College, The King’s Academy and Bede Academy in encouraging all of its staff and students to reach out for their own individual ‘personal best’. Trinity has a non denominational Christian ethos and welcomes staff and students of all faiths and none, whilst building on clear core values.
Operating within a one-school-town, Trinity recognises its place within the planned regeneration of Thorne, situated as it is on the M18 corridor stretching up to the expanding Doncaster Airport. Invited by Doncaster Local Authority to be part of this renewal, Trinity has quickly established a reputation for high standards of behaviour, appearance and attitude, with students regularly achieving public recognition for their work inside and beyond the classroom.
Since 2005 academic results at all levels including Key Stage 3 (for those aged 14), Key Stage 4 (GCSE) for English Baccalaureate and 5 A*-C, including English and Mathematics, and Key Stage 5 (Sixth Form) have seen huge improvements, putting Trinity amongst the top schools in Doncaster. In 2011 Trinity was awarded ‘Outstanding’ status by OfSTED and we are keen to continue to play our part in moving the community forward.
