Holy Trinity CofE Academy is a small, caring and inclusive single form entry primary school located in Rothwell, South Leeds. The school became an academy in 2014, joined Abbey Multi Academy Trust in 2017, and has strong links within the local community.

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.

On a daily basis the school lives out the phrase “small school big heart”, 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.
