Student Welfare

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.

What parents have said

"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." - Parent of Junior Trinity student with educational support needs

"H is really loving her time at Trinity, and I have to thank you for everything you are doing for her; she seems to have grown up so much this year and it has done wonders for her confidence and maturity." - Parent of current Junior Trinity student

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.


Students are encouraged to discuss their career aspirations and options with teachers 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. If they are interested in a music course, they may find it hard to choose between studying at a university or a conservatoire. Junior Trinity is able to advise on UCAS entries, support students in writing their personal statements, and help prepare those that are applying to study music at Oxford or Cambridge Universities.

The Jerwood Library also includes reference copies of careers guides.
