P7 Transition

Our uniform partner, Academy Uniforms, has been in touch with some information about ordering blazers.  Please note the initial ordering deadline of 20th June.

  • Blazers can only be ordered from Academy Uniform’s website.
  • They now have a very useful sizing guide video to help.
  • The secret to avoid disappointment is to order now.
  • The initial cut-off date for placing blazer orders is 20th June.

For details of our full uniform, please visit the dedicated page on our website.

S3 Parental Reports

S3 Parental Reports have now been distributed to all S3 pupils via their Glow email address and cc’d to parental emails that we have on record. If your child has difficulty accessing their Glow email account, please email gw18trinityictc@glow.sch.uk for support.

UCAS

Pupils who are returning for S5/S6 with the intention of applying for university thereafter, are required to join the UCAS Google Classroom.  Details of how to register for UCAS will be posted there tomorrow.  The joining code for the UCAS classroom can be obtained from the Whole School Google Classroom. (see Home Learning).

Preliminary plans for the next few weeks are as follows:

Week beginning 8th June 2020:

  • Trinity High pupils who have a place at an existing Hub should attend Trinity High School.
  • This new arrangement will run from week beginning Monday 8th June to week beginning 22nd June between 9am and 3pm (instead of 5pm).
  • Parents of these pupils will be contacted by central SLC staff to communicate the new arrangements.

Week beginning 15th June 2020:

  • We really hope to see our P7 pupils who are making the transition to Trinity High School.  This will depend on many factors some of which are still uncertain and subject to government guidelines.  If possible, we will invite small groups to attend for a short period during the week.  Further details will be communicated when plans are more advanced.

Week beginning 29th June 2020:

  • Hubs will restart, reducing from 20 to 12 schools.
  • The Hubs will run for six weeks during the summer holiday with the final day of Hub provision being Friday 7th August 2020.

This update supersedes all previous updates.

Helping them to SUCCEED – A Guide for Parents

All parents, carers and guardians want their children to achieve to the best of their ability and do as well as they can in their exams.

Research shows that children, whose parents become involved in their education, are more likely to perform better in exams. Many parents would like to do the same ……..but unfortunately don’t know where to start.

Exams can be a stressful time for students and parents alike, sometimes for the whole family.  However, there is a lot that we can do to alleviate these pressures and help your child achieve success and perform to the best of their ability.  Mr Gilroy of our Modern Languages department has compiled a very useful and informative parent’s guide to revision and exams.  The purpose of the guide is to help parents support their child in preperation for, and throughout their examination period.  Click A GUIDE TO EXAMS AND STUDY SKILLS FOR PARENTS to access the guide.



NASA Space School

Trinity High School was very proud to have a pupil selected to attend the  week long residential summer school at Strathclyde University, which provided an eclectic mix of lectures, labs and workshops all on a space theme, delivered by leading academics and researchers, and supported by NASA astronauts and engineers. Following this week, Thomas Scally (S6) was selected as 1 of 10 students from across Scotland to experience a 7 day Learning Journey to Johnson Space Center in Houston in October, where he was inspired and motivated in the fields of Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) and took part in various experiences developing high quality communication, team-building and problem solving skills.

Below are pictures of Thomas’ experiences in Houston:
