Why HTPS?

 

We are a school that is dedicated to developing the knowledge, skills and values for pupils to enable them to live fulfilling lives as global, national citizens of the future. We care for every child and this is reflected in the ethos that you will find here. We support the development of the whole child and we aim to foster key values for life. Our school values are respect, harmony, faith and life-long learning.

The teachers at Holy Trinity make the education of their pupils their first concern. They promote the highest possible standards in work and conduct. When your child starts with us, you also become a valued partner in your child’s learning journey. We wish to work closely with you to ensure your child is able to thrive.

Our highly skilled and dedicated staff team create a welcoming and stimulating learning environment where your children will be supported and nurtured to achieve their potential. We use a broad and balanced curriculum to meet the needs of our pupils, enabling them to achieve their full educational potential and make progress in learning. Lessons are carefully planned to engage a range of different learning styles and actively promote pupils’ spiritual, moral, social and cultural development. We are committed to creating learning opportunities, through our curriculum, that are engaging, challenging and fun. We aim to inspire all children by making learning irresistible!

Finally, we are proud and privileged to be leading your child through this exciting first stage of their school education. We will endeavour to ensure that their experience with us is the best that it can be.

Holy Trinity School was founded in 1853 and has been on the present site as separate Infant and Junior Schools since 1953. In September 2007 the new Holy Trinity Primary School was opened, replacing both schools. Since its foundation the school has been granted controlled status under the 1944 Education Act, this means that our school is a Church of England School and we seek to approach our educational tasks bearing in mind our Christian Foundation. The local church retains strong links with the school and demonstrates a continuing educational and pastoral interest in the life of our school.

The school occupies a double storey site with 23 classrooms, a large and small hall, library, ICT suite, offices and kitchen area. The school has an attractive hard play area, and a multi-unit games area (MUGA), a school garden and playing field. With the help of fund raising by the Friends of Holy Trinity Primary School, we have developed outside adventure climbing frames. We are also fortunate to have the use of an outdoor swimming pool.
