Holy Trinity CofE School

Holy Trinity Church of England Primary School has been in the business of forming young lives for the future for almost 200 years.

Opening its doors in 1830, the school’s express purpose was for ‘the education of the poor and the children of the poor in the Parish of Upper Chelsea in the principles of the Christian religion and according to the doctrines and disciplines of the Church of England.’

Today, Holy Trinity School seeks to provide a broad and varied curriculum that meets the needs of all children, instilling a love of learning and strong Christian values.

Children come from a wide range of backgrounds and live mainly in Westminster, Battersea and Chelsea.  The school is extremely inclusive and welcomes pupils with a huge breadth of abilities and from a wide range of faith backgrounds. There is room for 210 children based in two beautiful Victorian buildings in Sedding Street and Cadogan Gardens. Holy Trinity was judged a ‘Good’ school by OFSTED in 2017 and ‘Outstanding’ by Religious Education inspectors in 2018.

The school enjoys a close relationship with Holy Trinity Church and the Rector is a school governor along with three other governors appointed by the Parochial Church Council. The clergy play an active part in school life, conducting assemblies each week, leading acts of worship at festivals, supporting teachers in delivering the Religious Education syllabus and overseeing the pastoral care of both pupils and staff.

In 2019, Holy Trinity School entered a Federation with its neighbour, Christ Church CofE Primary School, Chelsea under the leadership of one Headteacher, Mrs. Avis Hawkins, and one Governing Board, forming a new partnership of learning and working together to ensure all children have the opportunity to reach their maximum academic and social potential.

Children who attend Holy Trinity Church at least once a month for one year are then eligible to apply for a ‘Faith place’.
