Here at Durham Trinity School & Sports College we have very successful Gifted & Talented and Sports Leadership programmes. Pupils are identified in school and are selected at the start of each academic year. Across the year pupils attend events aimed at developing a variety of skills that they will then be able to apply in a school setting.
Check back here regularly for details of events.
