We believe that the decision about where to send your child for these early and formative years is one of the most important decisions of their lives. Our aim is to make every pupil’s experience exciting and fulfilling and one they will look back at with genuine happiness. We provide a warm, supportive environment where each child is valued and encouraged to seek challenge, to value effort and to persist in the face of obstacles.
A Message from the Head:
Holy Trinity is unique. As a through school, students can undertake their 14 year journey under one roof, though whether joining us in Reception or any other year group, students can be assured of a warm welcome into the Holy Trinity family. Offering a broad curriculum, at Holy Trinity we value the world of academia, but equally value the creative arts and PE, as we believe that the skills and attributes developed in these subjects help our students to become well-rounded individuals. With a swimming pool on site, all students learn to swim as part of our curriculum provision, in doing so developing an essential life skill.
Teachers at Holy Trinity are adept at teaching across both the primary and secondary phase, which supports an effective transition from Year 6 through to Year 7. Within our primary phase, students receive specialist teaching from senior staff in PE, music, French and art, as well as some subject specialism within each year group in Key stage 2. In Reception, staff have created an exciting environment, both indoors and out, for our youngest students, helping to nurture a joy of learning and social awareness. In Sixth Form, students benefit from small tuition groups and are given opportunities to develop leadership skills within the main school, as well as receiving individual support in their UCAS applications.
Although a broad curriculum is essential, at Holy Trinity we place equal value on the development of personal attributes and student well-being. A good education not only provides our young people with choice as they move on from education, but it also empowers them to work within a wider community, being able to participate and contribute effectively. Therefore, at Holy Trinity we do not compromise on time given to the development of self and have several well established student groups that enable our students to have a voice, as well as a network of peer support. The ethos of the school is one of caring and consideration for others and where kindness and individuality are celebrated. Students are allowed to be themselves and engage in an environment where ‘it is cool to learn’ and is reflected in our school motto, ‘Attend, Aspire, Achieve’.
