Holy Trinity Church School
At Holy Trinity Church School the Church is represented by a majority of the Governors, and the teaching staff are in sympathy with the Christian faith, as expressed by the Church of England. It was opened and dedicated by the Rt Revd John Bickersteth, Bishop of Bath and Wells, in 1981.
The school has been extended twice since opening in 1981, and now has 14 classes, currently operating a two-form entry system (two classes per year group). An extension to our current hall space was completed in June 2012, providing a substantial space for P.E. and Worship. The most recent project was completed in October 2012, with official 'celebrations' taking place on Thursday, May 2nd, 2013. The Bishop of Taunton opened our new Trinity building which includes additional classroom spaces, a second hall and various group rooms and other learning spaces with full access and facilities for those with disabilities.
All classes have screens with Apple TVs, and there is wireless internet access across the whole school. We have invested heavily in IT with laptops (including touch screen), netbooks, and iPads, all available for learning and teaching. We also have a 3D printer which is used by all the children for various projects and units of learning in the Computing Curriculum.
The school grounds include a field with an all-weather fitness track. We have a Forest School area which includes an 'outdoor' classroom building known as Forest Lodge. We have areas for children to grow produce, as well as a greenhouse. There is an outdoor stage for performances within the school day, and we have some very enthusiastic, qualified Forest School staff who seize every opportunity to learn outdoors!
The Bishop of Taunton, the Venerable Ruth Worsley, visited the school in November 2015 to officially open our Labyrinth. The Labyrinth was constructed by ALL the children and adults in the school during the Autumn Term 2015. It provides a focal point for reflection and learning within our school grounds.
We actively promote and encourage all members of our school community to travel to school in a safe and environmentally friendly manner. We offer a cycling scheme for everyone, including a safe entrance to the school for cyclists. Bicycles and scooters can be stored on the school site in our cycle rack area. The school gates are locked during the school day, but the school cannot accept liability for any lost or damaged cycles or scooters.
Our school is actively involved in supporting the work of other schools. We are at the forefront of excellence in Learning and Teaching, and our UPLIFT approach is gathering interest on a National Level.
Holy Trinity, a Christian Community that Helps Everyone Pursue Excellence.
