The Trinity School in Nottingham, England is a comprehensive Catholic secondary school (ages 11-18). It was formed in 1975 by the merger of Bishop Dunn school, a co-education Secondary Modern and the Loreto Grammar School for Girls.
Trinity has achieved an outstanding reputation in academic achievement, music and sport, as well as many other areas.
The School Badge, re-designed in 1988, encapsulates much of the school's tradition. The cross is derived from the Bishop's cross. The Fleur-de-lys represents the Loreto School and the Triangle the first symbol of The Trinity School. They are set in our colours of green, black, silver and gold. "Ad Dei Gloriam" our motto, ("To the Glory of God"), sums up the purpose for which we all work and means that in The Trinity School "only our best is good enough."
