Practising Being A Community
The symbol of our life as a school is the Rublev icon of the Trinity. It shows us that God is a community of persons. We believe that building community is fundamental to our work as a school. One if the best ways we practise being a community is on residential trips.
In the second half of their first term at Trinity Year 7 travel to north Norfolk. We stay at Letton Hall http://lettonhall.org
While in Norfolk we visit the beautiful Church of England Shrine: http://www.walsinghamanglican.org.uk/welcome/index.htm.
In Year 10 the school's senior pupils, the Red Team, take part in the National Pilgrimage to Walsingham where they carry the torches around Our Lady of Walsingham as she is carried in procession.
Children explore the stunning medieval village, experience a starlit walk, share in prayer stops to encourage their development as spiritual people and have fun getting to know one another.
On the way home we visit the beach at Wells-next-the-Sea see the lifeboat and enjoy a bracing walk.
Year 7 Trip to Walsingham
112 Year 7 Students accompanied by their Chaplain, the Headmaster and other staff from Trinity School in Lewisham went on retreat! It was a wonderful experience – one of the Year 7 has written their reflections for the Bridge:

Towards the end of Year 10 trips can be organised to travel to Burgundy in France to spend time at the Taizé community.
This is a powerful experience of living in community with thousands of young people from all around the world.
See the Taizé film on our films page in which the first group of students who travelled to the community talk about their experience.
This year is necessarily devoted to preparing for GCSE exams. A range of activities are provided for targeted groups of pupils.
