Situated within twenty seven acres of land on the outskirts of Croydon, Trinity School is a dynamic, modern and welcoming school for boys aged 10-18, with a co-educational sixth form.

Trinity is a lively and inclusive community which provides an extraordinary variety of opportunities for its pupils to enjoy and excel in. Inspirational teaching, small class sizes, outstanding facilities and an exceptional co-curricular programme ensure that pupils achieve academic excellence and develop into emotionally intelligent adults ready for life beyond school.

Trinity's strong academic results regularly place it among the top schools in the country. In 2017, Trinity was ranked 41st in the Parent Power list of Top 100 Independent Schools in the UK, making it the top ranked independent school in Croydon for the second year in a row.

Trinity's Music Department is one of the best-known in Britain and pupils can take part in over 50 different ensembles. The School was awarded the Pro Corda Special Award for Schools in recognition of its "outstanding contribution" to chamber music playing and, in 2012, became London's first All-Steinway secondary school. Trinity Boys' Choir celebrated 50 years in 2015, culminating in a spectacular celebration of musical excellence at Glyndebourne.

The school has an outstanding reputation for sporting excellence and extremely high overall participation rates. The pupils' commitment, enthusiasm and enjoyment of their sporting life is testament to the manner in which coaching staff at Trinity balance excellence and inclusivity.
