Dinner Day

Every year in March we celebrate Dinner Day. Dinner Day is a celebration of our Founders Day.

Hull Trinity House School was founded in 1787, when it was then known as 'Hull Trinity House Marine School'. It was opened on the 2nd February of that year. The anniversary of this event is now celebrated as Founders Day. Over the years this has become known as Dinner Day. This is because it is based on the tradition of the oldest students leaving the school to go to sea. They would leave school, and literally walk out onto the docks to go to sea. The boys would all be given a ‘hearty meal’, to see them on their way.  So, this celebration became known as Dinner Day.

Nowadays, on Dinner Day there is firstly, a whole school parade which is inspected by the Master Warden, the Principal and School Captain. After the inspection, KS4 will attend their ‘farewell’ Chapel Service. This will then be followed by KS4 all being invited to a special dinner with the Brethren.
