Trinity School (formerly Carlisle Grammar School) is an 11–18 mixed secondary school and sixth form with academy status in Carlisle, Cumbria, England. It is a Church of England school with strong links to Carlisle Cathedral.
In 1545 Lancelot Salkeld, The Dean and Head of Chapter of Carlisle Cathedral took on responsibility for the school in the Cathedral close. The cathedral was rededicated to the Holy and Undivided Trinity. The school occupied buildings on West Walls, some of which are part of the diocesan offices to this day.
In 1883 it became Carlisle Grammar School and moved to Strand Road, into what is now the Carliol Building of the school, housing the Sixth Form Centre. Since that time, governors continue to be appointed by the Cathedral Foundation. The analogous girls' school was Carlisle County School for Girls, which became St Aidan's County High School.
As the movement towards comprehensive schools took shape, in 1968 the grammar school amalgamated with two local schools, the Margaret Sewell School (for girls) and the Creighton School (for boys), to become Trinity School, a Church of England comprehensive school, with all of the sites along Strand Road.
The school became a Church of England converter academy in September 2011.
The £20m rebuilding scheme of the 11-16 school was completed in September 2012. They have spent £1.8 million worth of funds on a sports hall.
The Armstrong Building
This new building was opened in 2011 as the new Science and Technology centre for the school. It was the major part of the £20m rebuild programme that was officially opened by the Duke of Kent in October 2012.
The Chapman Library
This purpose-built Library is the main school library. It was opened in 2001 and is named after the former Chair of Governors, Canon Rex Chapman. It has a stock of over 10,000 items including fiction, non fiction and reference books, as well as networked computers.
The Carliol Library
This library is a learning resource centre with study areas designed for use by sixth form students.
