Trinity High School is a Roman Catholic School and as such takes as its main aim the mission of the Church to develop the Faith of its students and to promote the spiritual, moral, physical, social and intellectual development of its young people, in partnership with parents and clergy. Students are encouraged to maximise their talents, achieve their potential both inside and outside the classroom and grow as responsible, Christian individuals who are able to contribute positively to society. This is the ethos of the Catholic School as outlined in the Scottish Catholic Education Service’s Charter for Catholic Schools in Scotland and therefore the ethos Trinity High School strives to promote.
Faith and Gospel values are central to the school’s ethos and core values: community, achieving, respect and equality.
