In September 2016 the trust was approved by the DfE to open CST Trinity Academy, a new secondary school for north Bristol.

The trust has experience of opening a new school, having successfully opened Cathedral Primary School in 2013.

Trinity Academy will have a very close relationship with Bristol Cathedral Choir School and the primary schools that are part of the trust, building on their success to deliver outstanding opportunities for more students in Bristol. 

In September 2019, Trinity Academy opened on the site of Stoke Park Primary, until its new build is completed in 2021.
