All systems are go for Lockleaze's new secondary school, Trinity Academy

Cathedral Schools Trust is delighted to announce that at the end of February the funding agreement for the new school was signed with the Department for Education.

This is the final key milestone in the journey to open for Year 7 pupils in September 2019. Progress for Trinity Academy is well underway with the appointment of highly qualified and experienced staff including the Headteacher (Eiron Bailey) as well as members of the senior leadership team, heads of departments and an office manager. Further posts are being advertised at the moment with the aim of having all roles filled by the summer term. Work is also continuing on the design of the new permanent building and further information will be available as part of the planning process which is due to launch shortly.

The school was oversubscribed for the initial 120 places in Year 7 in September 2019 and offer letters were sent out to families on 1 March 2019. We will be allocating further places in our second round allocation at the end of March and we may be able to offer further places during subsequent rounds of allocation. If anyone is interested in making a late application for a place this September they should contact: or visit the school website at .

Headteacher, Eiron Bailey said: ‘Being oversubscribed in our first year and attracting such high calibre school leaders and teachers has meant we are in the best possible position for our first cohort in September.’
