Trinity Academy is a non-selective co-educational secondary school in the English Academy programme, at Thorne near Doncaster, South Yorkshire, England.

It is a member of the Emmanuel Schools Foundation,[1] established by entrepreneur Sir Peter Vardy to educate pupils within a Christian ethos.


The school opened in September 2005 and replaced Thorne Grammar School, established in 1930, which became a comprehensive school in 1973. The majority of the Grammar School's building was demolished, but its war memorial plaque and window were moved to the new Academy building and re-dedicated. The main, Georgian style frontage of the school was subsequently converted into apartments in 2009, with new mews style houses built on the former grass tennis courts along the frontage facing Church Balk.
