The closing dates for applications for September 2019 is at 11-59 pm on 15th January 2019.

    If you are still trying to decide which Primary School to send your child to? …Then contact us on the usual number – 01772 812662 and we’ll still show you around….For new starters for September 2019 visit the Admissions section of our website.

    Last term was another special one at THT…we came top of our Football League and won the Sainsbury’s School Games Gold Award. This award is for our commitment to the development of competition across our school and into the community. Well done us and thank you to Mr Skinner who put together and submitted the application (just before the summer) on behalf of THT!!

    In March 2018 we received our Ofsted report which reflects on our visit by Elizabeth Stevens HMI in February 2018. It states that we continue to be a Good school and that, ‘The school is at the heart of the community and pupils enjoy taking part in many activities and celebrations in the village and local area.’ Click here to read the full report.

    At Tarleton Holy Trinity we are very proud of all our children and all that they achieve. We have an excellent reputation in the local community, “The school is at the heart of the local community and pupils enjoy taking part in many activities and celebrations in the village and local area.” (Ofsted 2018) . This is because staff, children, parents and governors all work extremely hard to ensure the best learning experiences for the whole school community. We have very high academic standards, but like learning to be fun – making sure that is more to life than ‘reading, writing and arithmetic’. We love art, music, dance, sports and PE and use enrichment days to help the children to experience these at their full. Being a church school is important to us, as everything we do is based on our embedded Christian Values. At THT we really do value, dream and achieve!

    The partnership between school and home is essential – you will always find our staff willing to assist and listen. If you have any queries or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact me or any member of staff. To keep up-to-date with what’s happening at THT, keep reading our weekly Newsletters, log onto my Headteacher’s Blog, download our School App, or visit us on Facebook…there are so many ways in which you can keep in touch!!  Thanks for reading!!

    What Makes Tarleton Holy Trinity Special?

    Our school motto is “Value, Dream and Achieve”

    It is important to all of us involved with the children at our school that they should receive the very best education: that they are given the skills to help them be successful in life, that they understand their part in the world and that they have a desire for life-long learning.

    We embrace and uphold the Every Child Matters agenda and it permeates throughout all areas of school life.

    We acknowledge that technology has a major role in their education and is constantly changing. We strive to keep up to date with the latest innovations and teaching methods.

  • Church

    Governors and the Church

    Our School is a Church of England Aided School, and, as such, maintains mutually supportive links with Holy Trinity Church. The Governing Body comprises representatives from Blackburn Diocese, Holy Trinity Church, the LA, the local Parish Council, parents, teachers and non teaching staff. The Church has the majority since it is responsible for the ethos of the school. The Governors work hard for the school and have wide ranging responsibilities, including appointment of staff, the curriculum, admissions to school, financial management amongst others. The Governors are also responsible for maintaining and extending the fabric of the building and must bear 10% of the costs for such works. This funding is supported by the fundraising of the FRIENDS of the school.
