Testament to this is the wide range of destinations to which our ‘Class of 2019’ have progressed. This year, our destinations statistics are:

 

Studying at university: 86%

Russell Group Universities (Leading 24 UK universities): 18%

 

A vast proportion of our students go onto further study, whether at university or with other providers. Students opted to study a wide variety of subjects with STEM and health based topics continuing to be popular. We supported students through the UCAS process to apply for subjects as diverse as criminology to business to geography. The variety of chosen courses included:

 

STEM subjects

Health & Social Care based subjects

Education & Childhood subjects

Psychology subjects

Sport based subjects

Law & Criminology

Humanities subjects (Geography, History, English, Politics)

Media subjects

Business & Marketing subjects

Computer Science based subjects

Art & Music

Languages

A number of students were accepted into the following Russell Group universities: Newcastle, Durham,  Leeds Liverpool and York.

 

Students who chose not to go to university went on to study Foundation Degrees or vocational training courses. One student is joining the RAF and two students have been accepted on Access courses for Paramedic Science and Nursing.  Two students who received Trinity ESOL provision have gone on to study Hair and Beauty at Middlesbrough College following a very successful work experience placement in July 2018.

 

As in previous years, there have been a small number of students who have opted to stay at College for a third year.  All students will apply for UCAS in the 2020 cycle.

A caring Catholic community

Underlying all we do are the words of Jesus: “love one another as I have loved you”. All our students are equal in the eyes of God and are, therefore, to be treated with respect and dignity. Trinity Catholic Sixth Form College is special. Our faith is central to all that we do and, as believers in the values and benefits of a Christian community, we offer a warm welcome to Catholics and non-Catholics alike.
