A Brand New Secondary School for Barnsley

A BRAND NEW secondary school, Trinity Academy St Edward’s is opening this September for Year 7 students, having been identified as an area of need for additional secondary school places. Read more in our Principal’s welcome below!

Trinity Academy St Edward’s: Update on progress from the Principal:
Thank you to all who have been in touch with questions regarding the opening of TASE at Eastgate. I have attached some of the questions that have been asked along with my responses. I hope this will help in easing some of the concerns you may have about the opening of our new academy.

One of the biggest concerns is about mixing with college students. I would like to reassure you that at no point will any college students have access to Eastgate. Eastgate is and will be a secure site and is not part of Barnsley College. It is our building and is completely separate from any other college provision. When we use college facilities for P.E, and in the future STEM, it will just be Trinity Academy St Edward’s children using those facilities. For example, when doing P.E we will use the astro turf and sports hall and these will be solely for our use during the time that we are there.

I hope the attached responses will ease any concerns that you may have. I will continue to update you on the transport solution. However, if you do have any further questions and concerns please get in touch by email or if you prefer, a telephone call. Please see FAQ’s here.

Information will continue to be added to the website as it becomes available, and you can read our latest news here. Please email us with any questions via contactus@stedwards.trinitymat.org giving a contact telephone number, and we will get in touch with you directly.

Mark Allen, Principal

September 2021, a significant date for the Barnsley community.

Trinity Academy St Edward's will open its doors for the very first time to welcome its founding cohort of pupils.

I am delighted, excited and bursting with pride, to be appointed Principal. Our school will offer our community a broad, balanced curriculum that will set the highest aspirations and deliver outstanding outcomes for all our children, no matter their starting point, or barrier. Our curriculum will be taught by highly skilled and passionate professionals delivering the highest standards and expectations in their daily work. Children will be at the heart of all we do and a team of experienced pastoral staff will be on hand to support any difficulties a child may face.

Trinity Academy St Edward's will champion science, technology, engineering and maths as part of our curriculum offer. We are committed to working with external partners such as ARMC, Barnsley College and more to develop and deliver our STEM focus throughout our learning and extra-curricular opportunities. This is an exciting and unique chance for the children of Barnsley to start their secondary school career in a smaller, inclusive and experience driven setting. Extra-curricular activities will be just as important and I want our children to leave with life long memories of their time with us, coupled with the ‘real-life skills’ and confidence to be successful in their futures.

I look forward to welcoming our first cohort and their families to Trinity Academy St Edward's. We will work together to shape our new state of the art building and to start the beginning of their future lives.

Mark Allen
Principal

@MentalMcMaths @LSafeguarding Yes, we are challenging our students to try their best to keep hold of their 100% badge. The only exceptions are needing time for existing medical conditions or hospital appointments. We can't wait to see students achieve 100% ⭐️ 96% + will be rewarded but won't keep their badge!
