The School

Holy Trinity is a 3 – 16 Catholic and Church of England through-school; the only one of its kind in the country! We have a 420-place primary phase and a 700-place secondary phase which is due to expand to accommodate an extra 30 pupils in Y7 this September. Our 3 – 16 through-school status offers exciting and innovative learning opportunities which enhance progress and create a seamless transition between Key Stages 2 & 3.

At Holy Trinity, the leadership team, staff and governors are completely focused on nurturing each individual in order that they reach their full potential. We are determined to raise standards for our pupils and to develop independent, aspiring and caring young people.

You will be joining the school at a time of innovation, development and rapid improvement, building on our strong foundation of care, commitment and challenge; in-house training opportunities provide quality CPD aimed at ensuring the very best practice for teaching and learning in-line with our Holy Trinity Standard and school development plans. Staff are also encouraged to identify their own training needs and develop as reflective practitioners; they are valued and supported to grow as professionals. Our students are challenged to be aspirational for themselves and are nurtured to develop a growth mindset. Strong relationships underpin our cohesive and forward-looking community. Staff and pupils are proud to be part of our school. Our recent Ofsted report acknowledges that we are an “inclusive and welcoming school”.
