Holy Trinity is a joint Catholic and Church of England High School. It provides the highest possible quality education within a developing Christian ethos – fully Catholic and fully Church of England, serving as a witness to our Lord Jesus Christ. The Governing Body, which includes Foundation Governors from both traditions, is the admissions authority for the school. This admissions policy has been agreed with both the Trustees of both the Diocese of Hallam and the Diocese of Leeds (formally West Yorkshire and the Dales)Board of Education. The Governors have agreed to adopt the Local Authority’s Co-ordinated Scheme for admissions 2018-2019. Nominally fifty per cent of the places available will be reserved for Catholic children and fifty percent for Church of England children. The admission number for Reception Year for 2018-2019 is 60. Pupils admitted to the Primary phase have the right to transfer to the Secondary phase at the end of Year 6.

The admission number for Year 7 for 2018 – 2019 is 80, (this being the number of pupils admitted to the school for the first time).
