Trinity Grammar School - Strathfield Campus
Our mission at Trinity Grammar School is to help boys discover their innate talents and unlock their full potential within the context of a supportive Christian environment. Centrally located in Sydney’s Inner West, Trinity Grammar School celebrates its ethnic, religious, and geographic diversity. For over a century, we have guided boys to grow in mind, body and spirit and we know what boys need to truly flourish and succeed.
Your son will be guided and mentored by a dedicated and skilled staff that is committed to ensuring he is well supported and encouraged to reach his full potential. By getting to know your son’s unique abilities, hopes and concerns, he will be understood and inspired in Trinity’s unique way.
From Pre-Kindergarten to Year 12, Trinity’s thorough and challenging curriculum is delivered by highly specialised and passionate teachers who get to know each student and make learning engaging and exciting.
Trinity empowers boys to pursue their passions, whether it be in academics, sport, creative arts or performing arts. We are one of only nine schools in the world to be accredited as a World Academy of Sport Athlete Friendly Education Centre (AFEC). This allows us to provide flexibility and support for exceptional student athletes to study the IB Diploma over a period of up to four years rather than the standard two years.
Pre-Kindergarten to Year 6 adopts the International Baccalaureate’s Primary Years Programme (PYP) based on an inquiry learning model. Your son will pursue his own interests and make meaningful connections in his learning with his home, the community and the world.
Primary Years Programme (PYP)
Trinity Grammar School understands the importance of making a good beginning. From the significant foundation years of schooling, boys are provided with opportunities to develop in mind, body and spirit. The boys’ needs are met by a differentiated, inquiry-based curriculum, delivered by motivated, creative and caring classroom teachers using exceptional facilities and resources.
At the core of this is the International Baccalaureate (IB) Primary Years Programme (PYP) which guides boys to become independent inquiry learners.
For students from Pre-Kindergarten to Year 6, the PYP focuses on the development of the whole child, in the classroom and in the wider world. It offers a framework that meets the academic, social, physical, emotional and cultural needs of each child.
At Trinity, the NSW Board of Studies Curriculum is taught through the PYP framework for learning, to meet the academic needs of all students.
Trinity is a fully authorised IBO PYP school having achieved this distinction in 2010.
In the primary years, boys benefit from caring, experienced, motivated, creative, and highly-trained teachers who nurture each student to help him realise his full potential. Specialist teachers in Physical Education, Music, Visual Arts, a Language other than English and Christian Studies support classroom teachers to deliver appropriate curriculum to all students.
The Trinity Educational Support Services (TESS) team provides Gifted and Talented Educators, Literacy and Numeracy Support teachers, as well as English as a Second Language/Dialect (EAL/D) teachers to assess, monitor and support the needs of each child.
The School's Languages Other Than English (LOTE) are Mandarin and Italian. Mandarin is commenced intensively in Year 3, continued through to Year 6, and is available in the Middle and Senior years. Italian is taught in Kindergarten to Year 2.
Throughout the School, boys have one-on-one access to technology to promote the development of digital literacy and support inquiry and creation. The School's curriculum is constantly evolving and reflects the changing needs of boys and society.
