At Trinity Academy Bradford, our Year 8 students ‘graduate’ at the end of Phase One. This aims to raise their aspirations, and help make students feel more motivated for their upcoming GCSE studies.

At the end of their two year journey, parents will be invited to celebrate their child’s achievements at a memorable ceremony, complete with traditional cap and gown.

There are, however, a few requirements students must meet in order to graduate. These include:

  • Excellent behaviour record with a Bronze Award each year.
  • Excellent attendance record with a minimum of 96% attendance over the year.
  • Attendance and engagement in co-curricular clubs with at least 75% attendance.
  • Participation in the academy’s Trinity Talks events (a minimum of six per year).
  • Good or higher attitude to learning as an average of all subjects.
  • Personalised targets in Masters of Recall met.

There are different tiers of Graduation, dependent on how many criteria your child meets, ranging from a First Class to a Third.

Students are regularly updated and advised of their progress towards these targets. All students have a Graduation Journal to allow them to check whether they are on track and, if not, set targets accordingly. Students who exceed these targets will aim to become part of the elite group of students who graduate with honours.
