As of 2010, 445 students attended Trinity High School. Every member of the class of 2010 was accepted into college. It was the fourth year in a row this has occurred.
The school opened on September 9, 1970, as part of a merger of three Catholic high schools in Manchester: Bishop Bradley High School, Immaculata High School, and Saint Anthony's High School. The only remaining Catholic high school in the city, Ste. Marie's, remained independent but eventually closed in 1973.
The school's college preparatory curriculum features a Catholic emphasis. Students of all faiths are welcome to attend, but classes on the Catholic faith are required of all students.
It is accredited by the National Catholic Educational Association.
