2013-2018 Strategic Plan

The Strategic Plan for Trinity College School 2019-2024 is currently in development.
A collective community initiative, we look forward to sharing the new plan for the School's future, during the winter term.


Building on the success of the School’s last strategic plan – Strength of Purpose: The Strategic Plan for Trinity College School 2007-2012 – I am pleased to share a new strategic plan that will guide our great school into our 150th year and beyond.

The Strategic Plan for Trinity College School 2013-2018 is a collective community effort that began in 2011, under the leadership of Board Chair Adam Howard ’76 P’08 ’11 and the TCS Board of Governors, in partnership with the School’s shared leadership group.

To ensure the final strategic plan reflected the thoughts and opinions of our community members, early work included the collection and analysis of industry and economic trends by an appointed board task force, followed by the formation of a strategic planning committee with representatives from all of the School’s constituencies, and the identification of an experienced strategic plan facilitator, TCS Governor Dr. Elspeth Murray P’08 ’10.

The committee then solicited input from alumni, current and past parents, students, teaching and operational staff, governors, trustees and friends of the School by issuing a survey, facilitating discussions and hosting a workshop by which key strategic priorities were identified.

Through this planning exercise, we have whole-heartedly recommitted to our mission and vision statements, feeling that they continue to effectively reflect our community’s shared values, our approach to education and our goal of sustainability. Within this document you will see we continue to prioritize our people, our programme and our place, recognizing that these are the pillars that make our community truly outstanding.

We encourage you to familiarize yourself with the three key goals that comprise our new strategic plan and invite you to follow our progress as we work to achieve these goals over the next five years. As a community we have committed to working harder and caring more and you will see our exciting future initiatives featured regularly on our website and social media channels, as well as in The TCS News.

As a member of this community, I encourage you to become involved, support our collective efforts and be a part of the continued success and longevity of this amazing institution.
