Here at Durham Trinity School & Sports College we sign post our Gifted & Talented pupils to community based clubs so they can compete at their appropriate level and be challenged in their chosen sport or activity. We actively promote Sports Leadership programmes in school, school is an active member of the County Durham Leadership Academy. Pupils identified in school are sign posted at the beginning of the academic year. Across the year pupils attend events aimed at developing a variety of skills that they will then be able to apply them in a school or community based setting. Pupils are asked to log their volunteering hours and are rewarded at a special leadership event.
Check back here regularly for details of events.
