Year 11 Team
In a round up of recently played Football Cup finals, Year 9 lost 5-1 to Outwood Academy but performed really well. Dean Warren scored with a cracking free kick. Mr Carey was delighted by their effort and energy.
Some of our lucky Year 7 History pupils have recently had the exciting opportunity to work with professional archaeologists on a “dig” in Fairy Dell, Gunnergate Lane.
Our Year 9 Pilgrimage to Rome, the Eternal City, saw 20 students led by Revd. Bunce (Chaplain) and Mgr. Robinson (Vicar General of Middlesbrough Diocese), and accompanied by Mrs Hawes and Mr McNicholas, between Friday 7 and Monday 10 March. It is hoped that these students will be embarking upon a further commitment to their Catholic Faith in the Sacrament of Confirmation, and this pilgrimage was in thanksgiving for the many blessings they have received so far on their journey of faith, and for the bestowal of God’s many graces in their lives ahead.
Another busy but successful Focus Day was held in early March and included a wide variety of topics for our pupils to learn about.

Award winning author, Emily Diamand visited Trinity in early February and held Workshops in Creative Writing with some of our Year 7 pupils. Excited pupils enjoyed working with Emily, who also met with students in the Learning Resource Centre where she signed copies of her books.
On 27th February a party of 34 Year 8 pupils visited Newcastle-upon-Tyne to look at various urban aspects of geography.
Amongst the themes covered were using the Metro as a means of sustainable transport, a comparison of and the consideration given to different styles of architecture in urban environments, regeneration of the Quayside and resettlement of dwellings.
Pupils visited the Castle Keep, primarily for the views of the city and the River Tyne and its bridges.
Whilst examining the regeneration process of the Quayside, a visit was made to the Baltic Centre for Contemporary Art on the Gateshead side of the river, and lunch enjoyed in Uno Trattoria. The visit which was thoroughly enjoyed by students and staff and led by Mr Cosgrave, Head of Humanities, said “the students were excellently behaved at all times, and an absolute pleasure to be with”.
