Celebration

Trinity Academy is 125 Years old on 4th September 2018. We are planning a year-long celebration and this is the first event. We are showing an outdoor screening of The Greatest Showman (singalong version, in case you want to join in).

An old fashioned looking poster advertising the events and showing a cinema in the playground.

For an extra £2 you can also join in our silent disco too!

This is a community event, so former pupils and members of our local community are welcome to come along. We will have the La Favorita pizza chariot, Barney’s Beer, plus JAC’s coffee van from Victoria Park and food and wine on sale.

The doors will open at 6:00pm and the film will start at 7.30pm, so there’s plenty of time to have some food before the show starts. Book through Brown Paper Tickets.

Inspire Courses

Inspire courses provide an opportunity for secondary school students to be introduced to engineering and science through project work to get a flavour of what to expect at University first year undergraduate level.

During three days at a leading UK university students learn how to manage a project, develop research techniques, carry out problem solving and write reports. They also hear about university life from lecturers, admissions tutors and post-grad students.

The photographs above were taken by one of our S6 students who took part in an Inspire course in summer 2018 at Glasgow Caledonian University.
