Trinity School celebrates 50 years

Trinity School celebrates 50 years since moving to current location in Shirley Park.

As part of its celebrations to mark 50 years in its present location at Shirley Park, Trinity commissioned an edible version of the school crest from the its catering firm, Holroyd Howe. Last Wednesday, Chef Lee Zaleski and Sous-Chef Maggie Steer together with Catering Manager Keith Dymond set about the massive task of creating a short-lived, but delicious, version of Trinity’s logo in 1500 cupcakes. 

Maggie agreed to share her recipe with us which included 51kg of butter, 18kg of flour, 18kg of sugar and a staggering 352 eggs! In addition, the cakes were then individually iced in the Trinity colours of yellow and blue – requiring an additional 32 kg of icing sugar! – and each was topped with a mini 50-years crest. The team were in the kitchen from 6am so that pupils and staff at Trinity School could marvel over lunch at this unique creation, best viewed from the stage balcony, and then enjoy a cup cake later on that day.

Trinity Catering Manager, Keith Dymond said: “We are delighted to have been able to contribute to Trinity’s anniversary celebrations in this way. It was a lot of work but well worth it to see the look on everyone’s faces as they discovered the School crest from the balcony area. And the fact that everyone got a free cupcake made for a very happy day!”

Trinity Headmaster, Mark Bishop added: “We are fortunate at Trinity to have a fantastic catering team who love a challenge! They really did the School proud by producing such an effective – and delicious - version of our crest.”

Throughout 2015-16 Trinity celebrates 50 years since their move from Croydon town centre to Shirley Park to make way for the Whitgift Centre. A programme of events ranging from music to sport is planned and alumni are warmly invited. Further details from or visit
