Introduction[edit]

Trinity School is the only Church of England secondary school in the London Borough of Bexley. It became an academy in April

Trinity is part of the Trinitas Academy Trust together with Christ Church (Erith) and St Augustine of Canterbury Primary Schools. This venture has created a series of schools where Christian values are used.

The Academy Trust is led by a Board of Directors which includes members of the Governing Bodies, representatives of the Bishop of Rochester and the Diocesan Board of Education. A Chief Executive has overall responsibility for the Trust and the Primary Academies are led by an Executive Head Teacher working with Heads of School. [1]
