Junior School

The Junior School at Trinity College School is a day school for students in Grades 5, 6, 7 and 8. It is located in historic Boulden House which sits on the north side of the School's beautiful 100-acre campus. The staff and faculty at the Junior School work diligently to ensure the best educational experience for each child, providing diverse opportunities for personal, social, emotional, physical and intellectual growth. In a small, supportive and challenging environment, faculty motivate the students to explore their strengths and opportunities, in turn fostering character, confidence and individual achievement. It is also in the Junior School that students develop the requisite skill set to meet the expectations of Trinity College School's Senior School.

Junior School students are active participants in academics, arts, athletics and co-curricular activities and come to Trinity College School from Port Hope, Peterborough, Whitby and many other towns and cities within the Northumberland and Durham regions. TCS students embrace the opportunities provided inside and outside of the classroom; faculty work closely with students to nurture a solid sense of citizenship, good study habits, critical thinking and sound observation skills. Teachers are committed to the students and their parents, forming strong partnerships which serve as the basis for learning and growth. Communication with parents is of vital importance.

The essential ingredients of a TCS education are: academic vigour, co-curricular breadth and attention to the wellbeing of the whole person.
