Trinity Sports Club

Trinity Academy has always had a strong tradition of providing sporting opportunities for pupils outside the regular school day. Over the years pupils have been able to join a wide variety of clubs and teams from athletics to weight training.

Current pupils are not short of opportunities to remain active after 3.30 and, for the princely annual sum of £20 sports club membership, can take part in any of 8 different activities.


The girls' badminton club meets every Monday with badminton for NQ pupils taking place on a Wednesday. These sessions are a combination of skill improvement and socialisation with opportunities to compete against other schools.


There are two basketball session per week with the seniors training on a Tuesday and the junior team on a Thursday. Both teams play competitive matches in the neighbourhood.


The summer term sport is cricket and the teams from S1-3 practice and play matches, weather permitting, from April to June.


The school currently competes in the Edinburgh and East of Scotland leagues at U13 and U18 level.


With the addition of an S2B and a 3rd XI team, the hockey club now runs 8 sides who train at least once a week with matches on a Saturday.

The school runs rugby for all age groups and currently has teams in S1, 2 & 3 along with an U16 and a 1st XV. Teams train twice a week and play most Saturdays.
