Students are encouraged to discuss their career aspirations and options with teaching and administrative staff, who are often able to provide advice and contacts. Students in years 11 and 12 usually begin to think about Higher Education at this point, and some have the dilemma of choosing between university or conservatoire if they are interested in a music course.
Junior Trinity is able to advise on UCAS entries and there is also an annual careers seminar organised jointly by the Junior Departments of the London Conservatoires where speakers from all branches of the profession are represented.
Junior Trinity places great emphasis on providing a safe and caring environment for its students in a friendly, welcoming atmosphere. Many students comment on how Junior Trinity has helped them to develop as individuals and how their confidence has increased.
All teaching and administrative staff, including deputy teachers, undergo DBS checks as part of the appointment process.
King Charles Court at the Old Royal Naval College is a secure environment and students are at a safe distance from busy roads. Registers are taken in each lesson and class and unauthorised absences are strictly monitored.
"Junior Trinity has been one of the few places that A has attended where he is able to be himself and for this I am truly grateful."

Changes in your circumstances
In exceptional circumstances, it may be appropriate for students to change instrumental/vocal teachers. This is only permitted at the beginning of term and at least half a term's notice is required. Initial requests for a change of teacher should be made to the Head of Children’s and Young People’s Programmes, whose decision is final.
Withdrawal from Junior Trinity may happen as a result of changes in family or educational circumstances. Termination of studies is permitted at the end of term, and notice must be given before the half term break. Where this is not possible, parents will be charged a full term's fees in lieu of notice.
