Trafalgar School was rated as a 'Good' school by OFSTED in May 2018 and forms part of the Salterns Academy Trust, established in partnership with Admiral Lord Nelson School. We are a UNICEF rights respecting school and we celebrate our diverse and varied mixture of students and teachers. We strongly believe that Trafalgar offers an excellent education opportunity for your child and it is our aspiration to be a centre of excellence for our community.

In May 2018 OFSTED commented that,

'Pupils talk enthusiastically about the school's values of respect, community, resilience, aspiration and inclusion and they understand how these contribute to the caring atmosphere in the school.'

'Pupils and staff agree that personal development and welfare are very important to the school community. Strong relationships underpin this caring atmosphere. On more that one occasion, pupils described the school community as being 'like a family'.'

'Strong, respectful relationships between teachers and pupils lead to interesting lessons in which pupils enjoy their learning'.
