Learning & Growing

Break and Lunchtime Activities

Free time is an important part of the school day, giving opportunities for the children to socialise and make new friends.

The breaks are well supervised by staff who are familiar with the needs of the children.  Although this is ‘free time’, the children’s recreation is, in fact, part of the curriculum, encouraging appropriate interaction through a peer-support scheme.

  • Lunchtime Clubs include Drama & Dance, Art, and Construction (common theme).
  • A Football Club is held on the field opposite.
  • Playground Activities include Football Skills, Bean Bags and Hoops, Ten Pin Bowling and Skipping.
  • There is also a Homework Club on Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday lunchtimes.

The Homework Club

The Trinity Homework Club was started in 2013 in order to meet the growing levels of requests for homework provision from parents and pupils.The Homework Club is run and supervised by Mr Thomas Furnell and provides Year 7 – 11 with access to the ICT suite in order to complete homework, manage independent study or research projects.

The Club also provides an opportunity for revision for exams in a relaxed, friendly and cooperative learning environment for those studying in Year 9, 10 and 11.

The Club is currently open on a Tuesday, Thursday and Friday during lunch time. The club is currently open two times a week.

The Club is free and completely voluntary. Pupils are free to drop in and spend as little or as much time using the facility as they wish, provided that they have homework or an independent research or study project.

The homework club gives pupils access to the ten computer workstations and they are able to work using their own laptops with their personalised programmes.

The homework club is available to College students for two days a week.

For further information on the programme of work, please contact Lauren Benson, Examinations Manager on lbenson@trinityschoolrochester.co.uk

College Support within Independent Studies

The personalised learning programme within the Certificate of Personal Effectiveness encourages young people to identify their own planning and completion of assignments by

  • Improving their Own Learning and Performance
  • Identifying Problems and developing Solving Skills
  • Working with Others
  • Using a range of Research Skills
  • Developing Communication Skills for life, to include discussions, presentations

Any parents or carers who would like to have further details on this provision, please do not hesitate to contact Mrs. Michelle Booth at Trinity College.
