Admissions & Prospectus
Fair Banding Explained (Video)
Trinity Academy Sowerby Bridge is here to serve the local community and our Admissions Policy reflects this. Our students and staff come from a wide range of backgrounds, and are of all faiths and none. Our vision is to transform the experiences and chances of young people from the local area by offering them an education that is tailored to their needs. In partnership with our sister institution, Trinity Academy Halifax, we are working to become an outstanding institution where no limits are placed on what our young people can achieve.
Trinity Academy Sowerby Bridge uses fair banding as part of the admissions process to ensure we are a truly comprehensive school. Please find examples of the fair banding familiarisation papers below: the NVR papers will provide samples of the kinds of questions students will be asked.
