19 Jan 2023


Trinity School CoydonTrinity School in Croydon has ranked in the top 25 independent schools nationally in this year’s The Sunday Times Parent Power Guide, in its highest position to date. Based on outstanding results from the last academic year, Trinity has been placed 23rd nationally and 13th in the highly competitive London region for independent secondary schools. 

The Sunday Times Parent Power Guide is considered the definitive guide to state and independent secondary schools nationally, based on the most recent academic results. 

Students at Trinity achieved the school’s highest-ever set of marked GCSE results this summer, with 93% of the then Fifth Year students achieving 9, 8 or 7 grades (A*/A). Upper Sixth students did equally well in their A Levels, with 96% achieving A*/A/B grades and 84% moving onto their first-choice destination. 

Trinity School CoydonHeadmaster, Alasdair Kennedy, says, “We are extremely proud of the collective work that is reflected in our most recent results, and to achieve the recognition from The Sunday Times with our highest ranking to date is rewarding for all involved.

“However, academic results are only one aspect of school life at Trinity and the success we are aiming for is evidenced in the kind of people our students become, as well as the excellence they achieve. We want Trinity students to love being part of our rich and diverse community, to thrive on opportunities to learn and engage and to become the very best versions of themselves, impacting the world positively when they leave us. That, for us, is the greatest achievement.”

The 30th edition of the Sunday Times Parent Power Guide identifies the highest-achieving schools in the UK. It is compiled from the first post-pandemic set of published results for state and independent schools since Covid-19 in England, Wales and Northern Ireland.
