Trinity Stars: Young Performers in English

English through drama, music and performance

Trinity Stars line up

Our Trinity Stars: Young Performers in English Award is designed to encourage teaching and learning English language through drama, music and performance. 

Preparing for Trinity Stars awards supports both learning in the classroom and teachers’ own professional development.

These awards show how performance-related activities support learning, motivate children and build their confidence and communication skills.

Four awards for children aged 3-12 years

Trinity Stars is a group award for children aged anywhere between 3 and 12 years old who are starting to learn English. 

Details and guidance on how to prepare children for these awards are contained in the Trinity Stars Guide for Teachers.
