Mr. William Trail | Curriculum Leader of Science
As we start recruiting our Dream Team of teachers and support staff to TAL, I will be asking each of them to introduce themselves and to tell you a little bit about their background and interests. Only the most dedicated, hardworking, and talented individuals will be hired at our school. Very soon they will be familiar faces to you around our brand-new building.
Our latest Spotlight features our new Curriculum Leader of Science, Mr. Trail, who I have had the pleasure of working with at another school within our MAT. He will bring passion, knowledge and experience to the role and enthuse your children with a love for Science!
I am thrilled to be joining Trinity Academy Leeds in September as Curriculum Leader for Science. I currently work for Trinity Academy Cathedral in Wakefield, another school that is part of the Trinity MAT family. The opportunity to help bring Trinity MAT to Leeds is extremely exciting. I have seen first-hand the transformational ability of the MAT and cannot wait to get started supporting the students of Leeds.
During my teaching career I have worked at three secondary schools as a teacher of Science, deputy leader of Science and Curriculum Leader. Leading the teaching of Science has been a privilege. During my time running a Science department, student aspirations and outcomes have reached historic highs.
I am passionate that every student has the absolute best Science education. Science is the tool we use to understand the universe around us. From the smallest subatomic particles to the very fabric of space and time, using rigorous and challenging schemes of learning students will be supported to reach higher than ever before. A first-class extra curriculum program will develop students understanding of Science outside of normal academia, Science at Trinity Academy Leeds will guide students to see further into their futures and potential careers by showing them the doors Science can open. My aim is to ignite the spark of curiosity in all our young adults. Fuelled with a mastery of Science, this spark will grow letting our students shine brighter.
My other passions in life are the great outdoors and classical history. Whether camping in the wilds of the Scottish Highlands or strolling through the streets of Pompeii. Surrounding yourself in nature or history always promotes feelings of amazement and awe.
