Following a period of consultation and due diligence, the governing boards of Holy Trinity CofE Infants School & Nursery and Holy Trinity CofE Junior School have voted to form a federation. This means that the two schools will have one governing board. This will come into effect as soon as parent and staff governor elections and other procedures have been completed by late January.  Governors are confident that the federation will enhance the provision that the two schools can provide for all the children in our community.
