Hi! Welcome to Holy Trinity College's Primary 7 site.

 My name is Mrs Russell. I am the Principal in our school.                                                                                                     With the unfortunate position of having to close our school so early in March, we recognise that you and your parents/guardians may be feeling a range of emotions about moving on and starting your new school. Don’t worry, this is quite normal. The Transition Website is just for you and we will update it as much as possible, with the aim of ensuring that you have a smooth and successful move from Primary 7 to Year 8. We are here to help and guide you at all times.

There are a number of important people for you to meet along the way - Mrs Monaghan Head of Year 8, who will look after you extremely well when you join us in September, and Mr O’ Donnell Head of Key Stage 3. He is responsible for all pupils in Years 8, 9 and 10. You’ll meet all of us on our Virtual Induction Video along with some current Year 8 pupils.

We work very closely with our partner Primary schools and when you come here to the College, we want you to settle in quickly, be happy and confident, and reach your true potential.

By looking through our website, we hope you will get an idea of what we expect from all our pupils and how they work very hard to achieve success. It will give you a great head start and prepare you for what it will be like when you join us too.

Should you have any questions which you wish to ask, please email us at info@holytrinityc.cookstown.ni.sch.uk and we will try to reply as soon as possible. Be sure to check out our main College website www.holytrinitycollege.org and you can also link onto our Facebook.

Parents/Guardians, as soon as you have forwarded your email addresses to us via the Data Capture Form, you can then sign up to the Parent App to receive more personal information.

We hope you like what you see and we can’t wait to meet you.

I Russell

Your Key Personnel

Hi boys and girls,


My name is Mrs Monaghan and I am Head of Year 8 here at Holy Trinity College. It is my job to make sure that you are happy and safe during your first year here at the college.

I will be one of the first faces that you will see when you arrive at Holy Trinity College, although you will have already met me on open evening, taster days and on the induction evening, should you get accepted into Holy Trinity College.

My role is to ensure firstly, that you are happy here but also to address any issues regarding attendance, behavioural concerns or academic achievement.

Should you encounter any problems or have any worries, no matter how small they may seem, I would encourage you to come and see me straight away as usually these are things that I can sort on the spot or certainly by the end of the day.


I hope to see you in September and look forward to getting to know you as a unique and special individual.

 Head of Year 8 -

Mrs Monaghan 


 Head of Key Stage 3 - Mr O'Donnell 


Head of Key Stage 3 – Mr O’ Donnell


My name is Mr O’Donnell and I am head of Key Stage Three at Holy Trinity College. I am responsible for the Pastoral, Academic and Social development of each student in this Key Stage. I work closely with our Year Heads and Form Teachers to ensure that each student feels happy and safe from the time they enter our gates in the morning until the second they leave. I also teach Technology and Design as well as being involved in managing football teams.


Like Mrs Monaghan, I will be the first face you see each day you come to school. I have responsibility in school for Transport so I look after any issues you may or may not have on your journey to and from school.


Recently, I have visited many of you in your Primary School. I always enjoy seeing you come to Holy Trinity College during Open Nights, Taster Days, Primary School Links programmes and Summer Schemes. I hope that these experiences have been positive for you all and have given you a glimpse of what life as a student is like here at Holy Trinity College.


I wish you well for the remainder of the Summer and look forward to seeing you all in September in the Holy Trinity College Uniform.
