Principal'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)

At Holy Trinity Church of England Academy, Rothwell, we look to the future with confidence and a renewed sense of purpose as part of the Abbey Multi Academy Trust. Working closely with the other academies within the trust, we are embarking on an exciting journey.  The goal is to quickly build our school into a successful community of hope, love and faith in which everyone is valued and achieves their full potential.

It is my intention that Holy Trinity C of E Academy will develop rapidly through a culture based on Christian values and Growth Mindset; a philosophy that is built on learning from past mistakes, identifying next steps and maintaining a positive outlook. Through this every child will:

  • Develop positive learning behaviour,
  • Make good to outstanding progress,
  • Develop skills for life.

Leadership at Holy Trinity C of E Academy is based on the cornerstones of love and challenge. This ethos has been embraced by our staff, our pupils and our community. We challenge ourselves daily to:

  • Ensure that our children make rapid progress and are inspired,
  • Improve our own practice,
  • Inform, engage and empower parents/carers and our community.

As a result, I am intent on securing good future OFSTED outcomes and returning Holy Trinity C of E Academy to the school of choice for parents within the local area and beyond.

I hope you enjoy finding out more about our academy through our website which gives you a flavour of our ambition, achievement and aspirations.
