We were delighted to have a visit from Bishop Mark earlier this month. He came to present us with our "Outstanding School " certificate  from the recent SIAMS inspection. A special well done to all the children and staff at school for this fabulous result - especially Mrs Cooper - Hobson our RE co-ordinator who has worked hard to ensure we provide an enriching RE curriculum that is deserving of this award. 

Well done to  Gene, Max and Lacey on becoming our Maths Champions! They won through heats, quarter finals, semi finals and the final to become the maths champions of Holy Trinity School. A super effort !  We are now hoping they will go on to further success when they compete against other schools in the area in the inter-school maths competition.

Term dates can be found in the Parents section under Letters

Great News !!!!   Holy Trinity CE School has been named in the top 250 state primary schools throughout the country in the recent Sunday Times survey of state schools. They came 67th in the survey and are the only school from Oldham to make the list. A super result for all our children, staff, parents and all who work together to make Holy Trinity such a wonderful place to learn!

The children in KS1 & Reception did a wonderful job in their Nativity performance - here are a few photos from the day.

Once again our choir delivered a wonderful performance when they joined together with Saddleworth 'Sing for pleasure choir ' at Holy trinity Church for the carol concert last week. The church was full and the audience enjoyed listening to the beautiful singing from both the choirs and joining in with the carols.Mrs Williams and all the staff were very proud of them.

We had an extra special guest today in school, Hockey ' GOLD MEDAL WINNER'  - Nicola White came to visit and tell us all about her amazing achievement and her experiences in the Olympics this summer. Thank you Nicola - you really are a super star.

  SINGING SUCCESS
 On July 1st in Heaton Park, Manchester, there will be a concert to commemorate the centenary of the Battle of the Somme.  One choir  from each of the nations of the United Kingdom has been chosen to form a National Children's Choir and  we are delighted that Holy Trinity School Choir has been selected to represent England. This is an immense privilege and we are sure that it will be a memorable experience for all the children who are involved. 

The choir also won the Dr. Eileen Bentley Choral Shield for the most outstanding choral performance at the Oldham Schools' Music Festival on Friday 17th June. The adjudicator praised the choir for its confident part singing, excellent diction, wide dynamic range,  variety of timbres and exceptional musicality. The award was shared with St. Matthew's School, Chadderton. This was an exceptional achievement as the festival was held over five full days and a large number of choirs competed for the shield. Well done to all the children for their hard work and excellent performance.

We would like to thank Mrs Williams, Mr Jackson and the School Choir for all the hard work they put in preparing for the Battle of the Somme Centenary Concert in Heaton Park last Friday.

Being one of only two schools representing England in a specially formed National Children's Choir, the children did a fantastic job of marking the sombre occasion and representing school at such a highly prestigious event.
