Trinity Grammar School is an Anglican day and boarding school for boys with its Preparatory School (Pre-Kindergarten to Year 6) at Strathfield, and Junior School (Kindergarten to 6), Middle School (Years 7 to 9) and Senior School (Years 10 to 12) all at Summer Hill. Since its foundation in 1913, Trinity has forged a reputation for academic excellence, nurturing pastoral care, and participation in a wide range of sporting activities, co-curricular programs and the creative and performing arts, all these factors promoting a rich cultural ethos and development of the individual talents of each boy. Centrally located in Sydney’s thriving inner-west, Trinity draws boys from a wide variety of ethnic and religious backgrounds and many different suburbs across Sydney, the Sutherland Shire, Australia and overseas. Trinity provides boys with the best opportunity to realise their unique potential, passions and purpose in life.

Boarding at Trinity is different. Offering separate boarding facilities, boarding starts from Year 7 through to Year 12 and is kept deliberately small so that your son can receive the highest standard of care and mentoring available. Trinity has the highest boarding staff to boarder ratio of any boarding school in Sydney and has been shaping young men through a boarding education for more than 100 years. Trinity creates a family environment within its boarding house with staff who understand the parental and pastoral needs of raising children and, in particular, young men.

Facilities: Trinity Grammar School is committed to providing facilities that fully cater for modern global learning. These include: The School of Music, School of Science, the Design Centre which caters for Technology and Design and the Visual Arts, multimedia production and recording studios, film, TV and post production suites, language labs, Drama Theatre, pastoral care centre and Library. This purpose-built Arthur Holt Library has been designed with three core user experience elements in mind; Functionality, Flexibility and Connectivity. The fully flexible spaces range from quiet study to group collaboration, including a modern soft furnishing reading zone as well as class and small meeting areas.

There are three playing fields at Summer Hill (including a FIFA-approved synthetic playing surface and running track); a gymnasium, strength and conditioning centre, indoor swimming and diving complex and a soon to be completed Aquatic Centre with a 50m Olympic sized pool.
The Preparatory School at Strathfield houses the multi-purpose Pre-Kindergarten space, Infants and Primary Centres, as well as a gymnasium, purpose-built library, music centre and protected outdoor play areas.

Trinity is a wirelessly integrated school where students utilise the latest digital devices such as iPads and Chromebooks. In the Senior Years a Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) program has been introduced.

The wide selection of Sports available include cricket, basketball, rugby, football, swimming, track and field, cross country, tennis, volleyball, water polo, diving, fencing, squash and lawn bowls and the R.A.W. Challenge.

Additionally there are music and sporting academies for those boys who are identified as outstanding candidates.

Welfare and personal development: Trinity is committed to helping boys progress both in and out of the classroom. With guidelines based on the fundamentals of providing both care and discipline, boys are guided to grow into self-confident, resilient, gracious young men. With a key focus on pastoral care needs, Trinity has a special Middle School Program to ensure a smooth transition from Primary to Secondary education. Also, in Year 9 boys undertake a Field Studies Program.

There are 16 houses and 32 house masters which are the key link between the home and the school. Each boy has his own tutor and there are five full-time school counsellors and a full-time careers adviser. The school chaplain also plays a vital pastoral role.

Special features: Trinity aims to provide boys a thoroughly Christian education which recognises the importance of spiritual qualities in every sphere of learning and living. The school actively strives to ensure every boy is known, cared for and guided to grow in mind, body and spirit.

Offering a breadth of opportunities, Trinity provides a well-rounded holistic education to every student. Its extensive range of world-class educational programmes and personalised approach gives every boy the best opportunity to discover and develop his potential, passions and purpose.
