Welcome to Holy Trinity Church of England Primary Academy

Holy Trinity was first established, in Handsworth, in 1869.  The school was founded by the Church of England and has always sought to serve all the children of the surrounding community.  As a one form entry primary school the children develop excellent relationships both within their peer group and throughout the school.  All members of staff get to know the children really well.

It is our overall aim that everyone at Holy Trinity should have the opportunity to develop to their full potential, through equality access to a well-structured programme of learning and personal growth. We have built and maintain a learning environment where both pupils and adults have the confidence to enjoy challenge and celebrate success.


We are a school with high expectations. All members of our school community; children, staff, parents and governors, work hard to strive to achieve the best possible outcomes for our children.

English, Maths and Science form the foundations of every aspect of school life.

At Holy Trinity we deliver the curriculum for the Foundation subjects through a thematic and skills based, cross curricular programme.

This not only helps our children to learn in a broader context, continually building upon personal skills acquisitions, but also develops their understanding of global issues and the difference we can make as citizens of the future.

We are blessed with our grounds to be a ‘little oasis’ in the middle of the second city. 

Church Values

Holy Trinity is a Church of England Academy that educates children from a variety of religious backgrounds in a multicultural and multiracial community. We work together to promote tolerance and respect for others and to break down prejudice and mistrust.

The children are educated within the Christian values of the Church of England. All the major Christian festivals are celebrated, sometimes at school and on other occasions at Holy Trinity Church.

It is hoped that parents will bring their children to join in worship at Holy Trinity Church at other times, but especially when children from school are taking part.

Our aim is to develop in all children an awareness, acceptance and appreciation of others through learning about each other’s customs and beliefs.

Student Voice

Children at Holy Trinity are given the opportunity to share their ideas, thoughts and views about the school. We understand that their opinions are valued and are always heard.

Our Student Council members are elected by their peers every year and they focus on different school prioritise. Student Council members attend one Governor meeting each year where they have the chance to ask questions and pose suggestions.

Every class holds a Class Council meeting on a regular basis. The children are given an opportunity to bring up issues they feel are important for their rep to take to Student Council.

Year 6 children are trained as Peer Mediators and they work on both playgrounds to support children who are encountering difficulties such as minor disputes.


We understand the importance of building strong relationships with parents. Communication is key between school and home to ensure that each child is reaching their full potential. We have a full time Pastoral Manager who supports and works with both children and families. A nurturing approach is used in order to develop the personal, social and emotional skills of our children and prepare them for their life’s journey.

We work closely with The Albion Foundation, a local charity. They provide PE coaching and after school clubs across the school.

We have close links with Holy Trinity Church. We attend church for four services throughout the year and Reverend Eve conducts Collective Worship regularly in school.

It is essential that our children understand their place in our local community.
