Physical Education

The PE Department is part of the Expressive Arts Faculty with a staff of 5 full time and 2 part time teachers and an Active Schools Coordinator.

The PE facilities on site comprise an Assembly Hall, 2 gymnasia, a swimming pool, a fitness room and a dance studio. Outdoor games are played at Bangholm Playing Fields, 5 minutes walk from the main building. Here there are grass pitches, a hockey astro and, in the summer, a 200m athletics track and a cricket square.

All pupils receive at least 1hr 50mins of PE per week with many in the department for double that time. Pupils are introduced to a wide variety of activities in S1 & 2 and then have an element of choice of activities from S3 onwards.

The department is also responsible for much of the extra-curricular sport that is on offer in Trinity, coaching and organising basketball, badminton, cricket, Duke of Edinburgh Awards, football, hockey and rugby teams and clubs.
