Head of School's Welcome

Welcome to the website for Holy Trinity C of E Academy, Rothwell.  We hope to use this website as one element of communication in our drive to fulfil our mission ‘To work in partnership to educate, nurture and empower.’  We hope the website will enable you to discover the ways in which Holy Trinity C of E Academy Rothwell stretches pupils academically, supports them pastorally and helps them to develop socially and spiritually.

At Abbey Multi Academy Trust we are passionate about making a difference to the lives of all our children. They are at the heart of everything we do and we strive to inspire learners and change their lives as a result of our educational provision. We want all our schools to be the best they can be and for each child to discover the skills, abilities, talents and interests that lie within them as well as giving them safety, security and the skills they will need to be active, responsible citizens and happy, caring adults in the future.  Our aim, quite simply, is to do the very best for children and recognise their individuality and uniqueness.  Childhood is a special and wonderful time and no-one gets a second chance at it.

The primary and secondary schools within Abbey Multi Academy Trust are prepared to truly collaborate. The schools have a desire to question, change and innovate to ensure that what they provide enables our children to become successful learners, confident individuals and responsible citizens.

We work as active partners both formally, as part of our growing Multi Academy Trust and informally, in the collaborative work we do with the Diocese, local universities, local and national business and our local community.

I welcome you to explore our website or visit our academy where you can learn more about our aim to work in partnership to educate, nurture and empower.

Mrs Helen Pratten

Executive Principal (Primary)

I am delighted to welcome you to the Holy Trinity Church of England Primary School website. We are a small, caring and inclusive single form entry school in Rothwell which is  a market town in the south-east of the City of Leeds. Our school community is built around our core value, love.

Love. Believe. Achieve

“We love because God loved us first” 1 John 49

We are incredibly proud that Ofsted recognised us as a ‘good’ school at our last inspection (June 2019).  We are even prouder that our strong sense of community, in which all our children feel valued and are able to achieve their full potential, was also acknowledged.

Our strong sense of community, and the importance we place on relationships, is evident in how we work closely with: other schools within our Trust and within our local area; with external agencies and with our school families. We value our relationships with our parents and carers, the contribution they make to school life and recognise that effective partnerships are essential.

We know that every child is unique and offer our pupils as many opportunities as possible to embrace their personal strengths both inside and outside the classroom. We challenge our pupils in their learning and help them to develop positive attitudes to learning, and the skills and knowledge they need to be safe, successful and healthy.  

On a daily basis we truly live out the phrase “small school big heart” because above all we care.  We hope you will find our website informative and that it provides you with a sense of how special our school is.

I welcome you to visit our school to see us living, believing and achieving, and to experience for yourself that we are small school with a big heart!
