Trinity Academy Newcastle Board

Message from the Chair of the Board of Directors

On behalf of the Board of Directors, may I extend a warm welcome to Trinity Academy Newcastle Trust

We are an Academy Trust, which offers skilled specialist support for young people with diagnosed mental health, behavioural and emotional issues across our range of specialist academies in Newcastle and Sunderland.

Our provision extends from supporting young children (from age 7) through to older learners in our Post-16 setting and learners with particular special needs in our Post-19 setting. We are keen to support the ambitions and hopes of all our learners, and we work hard to ensure that all of our learners leave with the best possible outcomes and preparation for their future lives. In particular, in our Post-16 provision we offer a range of courses, such as construction skills, land-based studies, hair and beauty and motor vehicle maintenance to provide alternative outcomes for our young people.

We are also aware that the lives of many of our learners are sometimes impacted by factors and events in their lives outside of school. We are at the forefront of the latest educational strategies on mental health support and are very proud to announce that we have opened a brand-new specialist centre at Trinity Academy Newcastle - Upper site to support trauma-based learning and parenting skills, with a corresponding satellite provision at Trinity Academy New Bridge in Sunderland. Our new provisions will offer the support of skilled, dedicated staff to help young people through some of the most difficult periods in their lives.

All of our academies in Newcastle have been judged by Ofsted to be ‘Good’ and at Trinity Academy New Bridge, we are in the process of supporting an academy that had previously been placed in special measures prior to joining our Trust. We have introduced many strong initiatives and skilled resources to support that academy and are committed to ensuring that it too is judged to be good or better at its next inspection.
