 Trinity Academy – at the heart of our community

Location

Schools play a particular role in Trinity since the area has no other publicly owned infrastructure.

Trinity Academy itself is situated in the centre of the Trinity area, in Craighall Road. Nearby in Craighall Gardens are the Bangholm playing fields which serve not only as a sports area for the school but are also used by Trinity Academy FP rugby club, and Waverley Inverness Trinity hockey club. The school maintains close links with both the rugby club and others who use these facilities. Nearby is Trinity Primary School, one of the feeder primary schools to the Secondary in the area, the others being Wardie and Victoria. Holy Cross, while not being on the list of feeder schools, is nearby and also provides pupils to Trinity Academy. Continue reading
