Quotes from Yr 11 students
Trinity House Academy has changed my life through five years of education. I like the teachers at this academy, they are kind and you learn a lot.
The Academy brings out the maturity in students and helps prepare you for the world of work and adult life.
Tradition is extremely important. Without this, the academy would not have the high standards which reflect both on the students and the teachers.....I’ve enjoyed my time at Trinity House and wouldn’t be the person I am today if it wasn’t for the academy.

Views of Yr 7 students on their first year at Hull Trinity House Academy (June 2012)
My first year at Trinity has been amazing. When I first arrived I felt a little shaky as it was a lot different from my primary. But, as the days rolled on, I got more used to the schedule and the routine.
In over a week, I already knew where all the classrooms were and all of the teachers. After a while, I got a little closer to some of the teachers and I knew who were nice and who weren’t. Before I came here, I was worried if the Yr 11s would bully me but they’re really nice and really welcomed you into the academy.
In primary school, the school dinners weren’t very nice but here they are five times better; with loads of things to choose from, you are spoilt for choice.
Here, people respect you for who you are and don’t bully you if you are different. I play for the rugby team and I really enjoy it. The academy does loads of different sports and has a lot of teams for you to choose from.
The academy has brilliant traditions like on the first Wednesday of each month we have chapel. We have a 50 minute service and your family can come to. Once a term we go to Trinity Church and have a long service with other schools and the public. We march from school to the church and even the Mayor of Hull turns up. On Poppy Day, we have a long service on the yard and there is a firing of a canon.
My first year at Trinity House Academy was better than I expected. The PE lessons are great, well mainly all the lessons are fun. Another good thing about Trinity House is that they organised great school trips this year. I have been to Paris and London. They were awesome trips.
This has been an adventurous year for me. I have made a lot of new friends and learned a lot of new things.
My first year at Trinity has been a lot of fun. My first week was scary due to me only knowing two people from my primary. However, I knew some in other year groups because they went to my primary as well.
We have been on many trips which have all been extremely fun. For the first couple of weeks you can’t find your way round the academy but then you get used to it. All of the teachers are friendly. Also you will soon make friends with people who come here
