Accommodation Main Features
Trinity High School is situated in a quiet residential avenue close to the heart of Renfrew and has undergone a major programme of refurbishment works which conforms to all current health and safety standards. It is a modern building constructed in the form of a square surrounding an attractive grassed quadrangle. The main building, which is bright and roomy, comprises general classrooms for subjects such as English, Mathematics and Social Subjects as well as specialist rooms for practical subjects such as Art, Home Economics, Music, Science and Technical. The main building also includes a large Assembly Hall with Stage, a Library, Support for Learning Rooms, two gymnasia and a well-equipped Fitness Suite.
The ICT Department is located in a fully equipped information and Communication Technology building and there is also a large fully-fitted Games Hall.
In addition there is a magnificent Oratory which is used frequently during the session for a range of services.
The refurbishment programme previously undertaken has provided an additional extension with 5 full classrooms and a seminar room. In addition all areas of the school have been extensively refurbished and upgraded, which has significantly enhanced the school’s capability to meet the needs of all its pupils/students.
Of great benefit, particularly during poor weather, is the social area for pupils to use at interval and lunch times and before and after school. This area is completely covered, heated and lit, with very generous, attractive fixed seating and was designed with the help of pupils/students. Included here are fixed televisions showing music and news channels.
Application for use of school facilities can be made to the Community Learning and Development Community Facilities Section on 0300 300 1430. Their contact details are included in the important contacts section at the end of this handbook.
The school has close links with the local Senior Citizens’ Club and we have developed a very extensive programme of work experience with firms and shops in the community.
The school’s achievement of high standards in all aspects of its work has been recognised by the Cabinet Office with the granting of a Charter Mark until this Award ceased. However the work of the School continues to be commended externally by HMIe/Education Scotland and in the Scottish Education Awards. The school has also received Health Promoting School Level 3 status in 2008 and achieved an Eco School Award in 2008 and 2010.
