A Brand New Secondary School for Barnsley
A BRAND NEW secondary school in Barnsley, Trinity Academy St Edward’s, is now open!
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 email@example.com giving a contact telephone number, and we will get in touch with you directly.

Our school offers our community a broad, balanced curriculum that sets the highest aspirations and delivers outstanding outcomes for all our children, no matter their starting point, or barrier.
Trinity MAT secondary schools consistently achieve academic results which place them in the top 10% of highest performing schools in the country.
At Trinity Academy St Edward's every young person will benefit from outstanding teaching, meaningful pastoral care and an inspirational curriculum.
I am honoured and immensely proud to lead the Trinity Academy St Edward’s community. We officially opened on the 3rd September 2021 with an opening ceremony and guard of honour that I will never forget, since then our founding cohort have continued to amaze me with their positivity, manners, attitude to learning and most importantly the standard of work they produce. Already they are developing into resilient and capable young adults that we are very proud of.
Our talented staff deliver superb learning opportunities from our broad and balanced curriculum. Each day I see each of our core values of Empathy, Honesty, Respect and Responsibility in action as our #TeamTrinity community work together to ensure that all our children, no matter of starting point or barriers, succeed. Our STEM specialism continues to grow, we have experience days for engineering, space and construction planned, alongside this, our projects with both the University of Leeds and University of Huddersfield are beginning to raise aspirations for the future.
Our INVOLVE extra-curricular programme is in full swing as our students are taking part in different sports, clubs, and experiences they haven’t before. A full programme is delivered twice a week with children attending a variety of clubs including creative writing, coding, Junior Sports Leaders Award, STEM juniors, maths challenge and many more. Children attending Trinity Academy St Edward’s gain amazing experiences that develop new friendships as well as solidifying current ones; all contributing to the development of lifelong memories. Our commitment to academic excellence runs through every department of the academy and our staff push the children hard to learn, understand and achieve more.
It is an exciting time to be part of the #TeamTrinity family as we embed our values and curriculum offer alongside the development of our new state of the art 18-acre new build off Keresforth Close, due to open in September 2023. We are immersed in exciting and innovative work here and encourage anyone wanting to see our academy in action to get in touch and arrange a visit. As our Christian vision states:
‘We are an academy where ALL are respected and valued.
We are a courageous, resilient, and positive community rooted in hope, aspiration and excellence. Together, we enable each other to be the best we can be.’
Each and every day students and staff strive to be the best they can be and embrace success together. We aim to change the lives of every single child that is part of our academy, and we offer no excuses for wanting only the very best for our #TeamTrinity family. I look forward to meeting any visitors and working with families of the present and future.
