Mission, values & drivers

At Trinity, we have many minds but one mission: to get students to and through university so that they thrive in a top job and have a great life.

Our core values of hard work, trust and fairness permeate all that we do.  From the moment a student arrives at Dixons Trinity Chapeltown, we ask them to live these values:

Hard work
We never give up. We remain positive so that we have the strength to persevere with even the hardest work. We do what it takes for as long as it takes.

We are honest. We do what we say we’ll do and do not make excuses. We are loyal and have the courage to do the right thing.

We play by the rules. We are respectful, polite and courteous at all times. We don’t take advantage of others and helping a member of our team is helping ourselves. 

We also focus on three key drivers: Mastery, which is the drive to get better at things that matter; Autonomy, or the drive to direct our own lives; and Purpose, which is the drive to connect to a cause larger than ourselves (Dan Pink, ‘Drive‘).

We clearly communicate our mission, values and drivers throughout every day so that the whole school community know the purpose of everything that we do.  We know why we move around school in the way that we do, we know why we wear our uniform in the way that we do and we know why we look at the speaker in all of our lessons.

Through rigour, simplicity and a relentless focus on success, all students work hard every day to climb the mountain to university.

Reflecting back on the past week and lockdown as a whole. I am so proud of my advisory and so grateful for every one of my colleagues at . They have made lockdown, a seemingly unpleasant time, an absolute joy. Also, what a memorable week of dream team speeches!
