School Description

The school is much larger than the average-sized secondary school. It has a very large sixth form. The proportion of students who are supported by additional government funding is much lower than average. This funding is provided for students known to be eligible for free school meals or who are looked after by the local authority. The proportion of students who speak English as an additional language is lower than average. Most are fluent English speakers. A very small number of students who are at the early stages of learning English have recently joined the school. The proportion of disabled students and those who have special educational needs is much lower than average. The majority of students come from White British backgrounds. The proportion of students from minority ethnic groups is slightly higher than average. About 20 students are supported through the Year 7 catchup funding which is for students who did not attain Level 4 in English or in mathematics at the end of primary school. Two students are currently attending work-related courses at Waltham Forest College and Epping Forest College. The headteacher is currently acting headteacher at King Solomon High School in Barkingside. The school meets the government’s current floor targets, which set the minimum expectations for students’ progress and attainment.

This School Guide heat map has been plotted using official pupil data taken from the last School Census collected by the Department for Education. It is a visualisation of where pupils lived at the time of the annual School Census.

Our heat maps use groups of postcodes, not individual postcodes, and have naturally soft edges. All pupils are included in the mapping (i.e. children with siblings already at the school, high priority pupils and selective and/or religious admissions) but we may have removed statistical ‘outliers’ with more remote postcodes that do not reflect majority admissions.

For some schools, the heat map may be a useful indicator of the catchment area but our heat maps are not the same as catchment area maps. Catchment area maps, published by the school or local authority, are based on geographical admissions criteria and show actual cut-off distances and pre-defined catchment areas for a single admission year.

This information is provided as a guide only. The areas from which pupils are admitted to a school can change from year to year to reflect the number of siblings and pupils admitted under high priority admissions criteria.

3 steps to help parents gather catchment information for a school:

  1. Look at our heat maps. They give a useful indicator of the general areas that admit pupils to the school. This visualisation is based on all attending pupils present at the time of the annual School Census.
  2. Use the link to the Local Authority Contact (above) to find catchment area information based on a single admission year. This is very important if you are considering applying to a school.
  3. On each school page, use the link to visit the school website and find information on individual school admissions criteria. Geographical criteria are only applied after pupils have been admitted on higher priority criteria such as Looked After Children, SEN, siblings, etc.

See Pupil heat maps FAQs for more information about the source of pupil heat map data.

Trinity Catholic High School Reviews

Average Rating:


“Parent's View”
"> It is a good school however my daughter is uncomfortable in her skirt and we would like for there to be choice of uniform trousers.
“A school that doesn’t deliver”
"> My children rate the quality of teaching at Trinity as poor and, as others point out, parents need to tutor their children privately to achieve results. A levels, particularly, let students down and the government website informs us that this school performs below average. Students are not inspired and driven to achieve their best to further develop their talents at good universities. In my opinion, they are let down day after day.
“Don't do it”
"> Don't believe the hype. We put Trinity as the first choice for our child, largely due to the academic successes that the school boasts of. The reality is I've been confronted with issues and ineffective behaviour policies. Many of the parents that I speak to privately tutor their children and I personally believe this is the reason for the academic success of the school. I would not have selected this school if I had known this at the time of admission.
“Bringing out the best”
"> My son has been so well supported in this school. He has dyslexia, is given support and made to feel that his voice is important. He has now developed a love of reading. He has been able to take Astronomy as an extra subject and has gone from strength to strength in science. He started at the school with a grade 1 in maths and no grade in English. He now is working at an average of grade 6. This is in two years, the school must take credit for this. Their SEN department is excellent and is at the centre of the school. The pastoral support has been very supportive. I can recommend this school to any child.
