Friday 9th September
Hello Everyone! It is with great delight that I welcome everyone back to the new academic Year in Holy Trinity College. The Summer holidays are well and truly over, and I hope you managed to relax and have quality time with your family. We hope this year will be a happy and positive year, free from disruptions to our young people’s education and enjoyment in school. Another exciting year has begun!
But first, a quick recap of a very busy Summer. We have kept you updated regarding maintenance work that occurred during the summer - mobiles have been relocated, alongside 2 x new maths mobiles and a large Post 16 mobile. All of this of course, is in preparation for the construction of our new school. A Specialist Provision Centre for Learning was also set-up during the summer, as well as a sensory room for ASD pupils. Great provision and exciting times ahead.
We welcomed 193 x Year 8 pupils to the college on the 1st September. Prior to that, they enjoyed an exhausting Summer Scheme with lots of activities to help them settle into their new school and build their confidence.
And of course, we had brilliant A Level & GCSE results – who said we had a summer holiday!!
We are so proud of our fantastic girls and boys who worked so hard to achieve incredible results in their A Level and GCSE Exams. What a tough 2 years they have had, but they kept their focus and determination, and their hard work has paid off. Well done girls and boys but also our super staff who supported you so well and your parents/guardians who encouraged you along the way. Success richly deserved.
Very proud A Level Students
Happy GCSE Students
It is great to have our corridors full of young people and to hear their voices again in the classroom and outside. That is what school is about! It is so good to be back and reignite that passion for learning. Everyone looked so smart in their new uniforms too and we certainly are impressed with the new Year 13 uniform.
The year ahead is going to be very busy; there will be pressure on Exam Groups; the well-being of our pupils and staff will be a priority; relationship building will be key - with our peers, our teachers and support staff; working with contractors to start our new build very soon; remain a Covid-free environment with very few disruptions; and reigniting the passion for learning will be essential.
I wish our school community a happy and fulfilling year at school. We expect our pupils to be respectful; to be safe; to be responsible; and to be a learner. Work hard and enjoy your success!
It’s great to be back again and by writing this Blog, I hope to give you a weekly flavour of what is in store throughout the year. Be sure to join us for an insight into the daily hustle and bustle of life within!
Have a great year, Holy Trinity College
