Here’s to 2019!
After it opened in 1893, the first exam certificates at Trinity Academy were presented in 1895. Today’s school wouldn’t be pleased with that Arithmetic pass rate!
During the Christmas break, if you want to try some really old past papers, they’re available on the website just for fun!
Thanks to the National Library of Scotland for archiving these.
Prizes for our 50:50 club are now around £75 each month and we’ve made it really easy to join.
