Former Pupils who Have Lived or Worked a Long Way from Northampton

PakistanMany former pupils of Trinity High School have moved hundreds or thousand of miles from Northampton to live or to work in very different parts of the world.  This section of the website enables them to share their experiences with others from school days.

 

Many of these former pupils have some interesting tales to tell.  People have undertaken teaching work in some the world's most deprived areas, while some live in some of the most inhospitable places and others enjoy the good life in another part of the world.  Here are a few of their stories.
