School arrangements during Lockdown
Dear Parents / Guardians
In line with the latest government announcement, school will be closed as of Tuesday 5th January.
However, senior students who have been allocated places in our vulnerable or key workers groups will still be admitted on site and will need to arrive via the dining room from 9.00am.
Primary pupils who will qualify to attend school in the vulnerable or key worker groups, will be allocated places to attend school from Wednesday 6th January.
On-line learning for all year groups will commence on Wednesday 6th January, and further information will be issued during the course of tomorrow (Tuesday 5th January). Years 11 and 13 will continue as previously planned for this week.
It is our intention to offer lateral Covid tests for those students and staff who are to attend school during the lockdown period, further clarification of this to be forthcoming.

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’.

OFSTED inspection rated Holy Trinity School as ‘Good’ with ‘Outstanding’ for personal development, behaviour and welfare.
There can be no doubt that Holy Trinity School is a very special place to work and learn.
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.
Student View: A day in the life of Year 8
Holy Trinity School is a co-educational school offering a quality education to children from 4 years up to 18 years of age. In recent years Holy Trinity gained Investor in People status, the National Sports Mark, the Early Years Gold Award from the Birmingham partnership, and most recently HTS has become a Directly Licensed Organisation for The Duke of Edinburgh's Award. The school continues to grow and build the school for future generations. It is a first class facility to rival most schools and places leadership and responsibility on the students for its upkeep, tidiness and leisure use. Our swimming pool is a great success and is the home venue for the prestigious Wyre Forest Swim Team. Swimming has always been an important part of our school as children swim weekly from the age of 4 years upwards. Being housed on one site ensures continuity of education between the main school sections: Primary School, Senior School and Sixth Form. This continuity is being increasingly recognised by Educators as a great advantage for students who get to know all teachers and naturally transfer from one section to another with their friends. Based within the grounds, but not part of the School, is Little Trinity Nursery for children aged 2 - 5 years.
What is a free school? A free school is a non-selective school that is funded by the taxpayer but is independent of state control. However, it is subject to inspection by Ofsted and is accountable to the Secretary of State for Education. The Government has been encouraging groups of parents and teachers to set up taxpayer funded schools since it came to power in 2010.
