Holy Trinity is a learning community providing Catholic and Church of England education for all. Our mission is to celebrate the uniqueness of every person as a child of God. We seek to create an inclusive and supportive learning community, based on Gospel values, that nurtures each individual in order that they reach their full potential.
We are quite unique being the only 3 to 16+ voluntary aided Catholic and Church of England school in the country.
As a Catholic and Church of England school we offer a unique opportunity for students to explore their spiritual lives through the Christian faith as expressed in both traditions. Christian worship lies at the heart of the school and is developed within the context of the students’ lives. Students attend worship every morning; they are invited to create worship themes and participate in them. We are supported by the Catholic and Church of England clergy, and the Diocesan Youth Teams from both dioceses are actively involved with all our students, often leading them in annual retreat days. All our students are involved at some point in community projects linked to the Archbishop of York’s Youth Trust Award. Holy Trinity has a full-time chaplaincy provision in school, available to all. The Mass is central to the Christian faith and is regularly celebrated in school through both traditions. Throughout their school lives, students are nurtured in their spiritual life – exploring their relationship with God from where they are – discovering God in the everyday.
Religious Education occupies a special place in the curriculum; all students are taught Religious Education for 10% of the time throughout the Primary Phase and to GCSE level throughout the Secondary Phase.
