It is both my pleasure and an enormous privilege to welcome you to The Holy Trinity Church of England Secondary School. We are a Voluntary Aided Church school with a rich history and a reputation for excellence. We provide an education of the highest quality within the context of Christian belief and practice. This is a happy school where faith is valued, and which is underpinned by core Christian values of mutual respect and compassion based on the Gospel of Christ.
This website holds a range of information no matter what your interest is in our school. Parents, please visit the Parent Portal, which has content specifically for you. If you are interested in your child joining the school or joining us as a Sixth Form student then there is a range of information under admissions and in the prospectus. If you are interested in joining us as a member of staff, then the vacancies section has what you need. Current students and staff can access emails, calendars and Citrix through the Student Portal or Staff Portal.
It is my firm belief that the best education combines high standards of academic achievement with strong moral and spiritual guidance. Education should provide opportunities for every individual child to succeed in a variety of ways; preparing young people for a future in which they can thrive in their chosen career paths in addition to becoming responsible, caring citizens. This is what we aspire to at Holy Trinity. Furthermore, I believe that learning should be fun, students should feel happy and safe and every individual should experience success. We work hard at Holy Trinity to achieve this for our students.
We are proud of our ethos, our all round high standards and our strong emphasis on personal development. We believe children deserve the best education possible and values that prepare them for the future. We are committed to providing both. Indeed, I believe that Holy Trinity is a very special place to be. I am proud of our wonderful students, the dedicated staff and the supportive governors and parents, and most of all I am very proud to lead The Holy Trinity Church of England School. Please feel free to arrange a visit to the school or to contact us for further information.
