The Trinity School of John Whitgift, usually referred to as Trinity School, is a British independent boys’ day school with a co-educational Sixth Form, located in Shirley Park, Croydon. The current building was constructed in 1965 on the site of the former Shirley Hotel. Prior to this, the school occupied North End where a High Gothic cathedral and school were built where its “romantic Gothic towers and verdant lawns” dominated Croydon. However, in 1968, the entire edifice, a building of historical significance was torn down despite massive public opposition. Today, the area which once marked the old school is where the Whitgift Centre now stands in a modernist opposition to the former building. Trinity is a member of The Headmasters’ and Headmistresses’ Conference (HMC).
