Every child at Trinity Church of England Primary School is in a house – Mandela (blue), Thompson (yellow), Hawking (green) and Glennie (red). These four people were chosen to inspire our children to achieve their very best as all four excelled in their sphere despite disabilities and political barriers:


became South Africa's first black president in 1994


Paralympic Olympic Medallist & member of the House of Lords


Theoretical physicist, cosmologist and author - disabled with a debilitating disease


World renowned percussionist - profoundly deaf

Children gain points for the houses for attendance, inter-house cross country and sports’ day events, contributions to school life etc.
