Information about the school

Holy Trinity & St. John’s CEP School is a large primary school serving the central area of the coastal town of Margate. Current number on role is 420 children aged between 4 – 11 years.

The size of the school offers many advantages as we are able to offer a wide range of learning opportunities and have a number of specialist teachers in our employment. However, there remains a sense of family within the school community which is reinforced by our House System and close links with our parents/carers and PTFA.

As a Church of England school, we enjoy strong links with the Parish Church of St. John’s and the Diocese of Canterbury. At Holy Trinity, the Christian ethos of the school goes far beyond the RE curriculum. In work and play children are given the opportunity to find out about the beliefs and values of other people.

Our overriding message that permeates through the school is “Treat others the way you wish to be treated”. As a result, we are a happy and safe school, where children and adults genuinely take great care of each other. Holy Trinity is however more than a place of community and friendship. We strive for high standards of behaviour and academic achievement for all children. We encourage initiative and equip our children with a confidence to enable them to feel positive about themselves.

We were graded as a Good school by Ofsted in November 2017. Our extended school provisions offer our pupils a wealth of opportunities to not only continue their learning but to develop important social skills. Some evidence of our extended school provision can be seen from our achievement in being awarded the Artsmark Gold and School Games Bronze Award.

Holy Trinity & St John's is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expects all staff to share this commitment. Enhanced DBS checks are required for this post.
